Georgia Offers Consumers Advice on Hiring Limousine Service

Posted on March 26, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

ATLANTA – The Georgia Public Service Commission is offering advice to Georgians who may be hiring limousines. Under current Georgia law (O.C.G.A. §46-7-85.3 and 46-7-85.4), all limousine companies are required to be registered and have proof of insurance on file with the Commission. A list of the licensed companies can be found on the Commission’s website: http:// www.psc.state.ga.us/transportation/limodata .

Chauffeurs who drive for licensed limousine carriers are required to have permits which are only issued to drivers that work for limousine companies approved by the Commission and who have successfully completed a criminal history investigation from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. A carrier operating illegally will not have the Commission’s required proof of insurance and a chauffeur working for an illegal carrier may not have passed the mandatory background investigation.

When making your reservations, consumers are advised to always get a written confirmation and to contact the operator a few days prior to the scheduled event to confirm the arrangements. The Commission no longer regulates the rates charged by limousine companies and advises consumers to shop around for the most competitive price and to confirm the price before the ride begins.

If consumers need more information about a limousine carrier or have a complaint about service issues, they’re advised to contact the Commission’s Transportation Unit at (404) 656-4501, or toll-free outside metro Atlanta at (800) 282-5813.
