TLC Using Online System for License Applications and Renewals

Posted on April 6, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NEW YORK – The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) has begun accepting applications for new, transfer and renewal licenses for Tier I For-Hire Vehicle (FHV) and paratransit vehicle licenses via an online, Web-based appointment request form. This process is similar to the one used in March and April 2004, and will allow TLC to address the expected increased volume of applications. Until further notice, all renewal, transfer and new FHV and paratransit vehicle applications require the completion of an online appointment form or use of drop-off service. Renewal applications may also be processed via mail.

The online form may be accessed via TLC’s homepage - www.nyc.gov/taxi or directly via www.nyc.gov/tlcappointment. Only TLC-licensed FHV and paratransit base stations can use the Online Appointment Form – appointment requests from individual vehicle owners will not be accepted.

The required information is listed below: ·New Application - vehicle owner’s name, vehicle identification number (VIN) ·Transfer Application - vehicle owner’s name, TLC license number for the new vehicle owner, the VIN and the license plate number ·Renewal Applications - vehicle owner’s name, TLC license number for the vehicle owner and the VIN

Up to 25 vehicles may be included in each online request. Only those vehicles listed in the online request will be reviewed during the scheduled appointment. The TLC will prioritize transfer and renewal applications. Requests for specific appointment dates and times will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

If operators choose not to use the online form, they can schedule an appointment at TLC’s Staten Island facility, located at 1839 Richmond Terrace, by calling (718) 815-3735. A limited number of appointment slots will be available.
