State Film Permits
California Highway Patrol
The California Film Commission has an onsite California Highway Patrol (CHP) Film Liaison who is available to assist with filming on State freeways and highways. The CHP Film Liaison advises companies and schedules CHP officers for film shoots. When filming on state roadways, officers are not automatically assigned and must be reserved in advance of filming. It is the production company’s responsibility to contact the CHP Film Liaison a minimum of 72 hours prior to filming to determine whether officers are needed and available.
