The MOT Basic or Flagging course certifies a person to direct traffic through a construction site or other temporary traffic control zone past an area using signs or flags. They are responsible for maintaining the safety and efficiency of traffic, as well as the safety of road workers, while allowing construction, accident recovery or other tasks to proceed. Flaggers are commonly used to control traffic when two way roads are reduced to one lane, and traffic must alternate in direction. A written test with a practical examination is required. All flaggers must successfully demonstrate their flagging knowledge and skills to an approved instructor or proctor. If successfully completed your certificate will be issued electronically by the FDOT’s MOT administrator.
