Georgia Passes Legislation Eliminating Amber Light Permits for Vehicles

Starting July 1, 2024, Georgia will no longer require permits for the use of amber flashing or revolving lights on vehicles.

House Bill 1193, which was recently passed, specifies which vehicles are authorized to use these lights and under what circumstances. Importantly, the bill clarifies that vehicles with these lights are not considered emergency vehicles and cannot act as such.

The Department of Public Safety will stop accepting applications for amber light permits after June 30, 2024. If you need an amber light permit for transporting an oversize load or for any other single-use purpose after this date, you won’t have to obtain one.
