We present transport measurements on YBCO single crystals in the vortex liquid regime using the DC flux transformer geometry. We show that the data are inconsistent with the material being an anisotropic, local conductor. The results provided evidence for non-local transport which indicate that there can be correlated vortex motion over macroscopic distances in this system. We have shown that this correlated vortex motion can be destroyed by either thermal fluctuations or the applications of large driving forces.
