What if the out-of-state escort course does not include flagging, is it accepted?

Pending final word from FDOT: yes, though escorts should study proper flagging procedures, as all escorts are authorized to flag while escorting in Florida per Florida Statute 316.079 (2). Proper flagging procedures are found in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices part 6E.

Reminder: all escorts must have an accompanying CDL or NSC DDC-8 certificate, even out-of-state certificate holders.
