Pilot and escort car drivers face a range of third party liabilities quite different from those of drivers of private cars, or even business fleet vehicles. Pilot cars and their drivers are relied upon to perform important safety functions related to oversize or hazardous loads, and drivers are personally liable for damage or injury arising from their errors or negligence.
This gives rise to a distinct risk profile that differs significantly from standard commercial vehicle liability, and this is reflected in the insurance requirements for pilot car drivers. For example, accredited drivers are required to carry $20m public liability cover.
In collaboration with the WA Pilot Vehicle Driver association, GSK Insurance Brokers offers an all- risks insurance package designed especially for the licensed pilot vehicle driver. Our package is designed to tick all the boxes on the pilot car driver’s checklist, and will safeguard your accreditation and your business.
