The Taxi and Limousine Commission is proposing rules that would: 1) consolidate the TLC’s Critical Driver Program into the Persistent Violator Program; 2) amend insurance provisions to reflect state legislative changes; 3) reduce the amount of time in which licensees can answer a directive; and 4) clarify that a licensee must have a state-issued Chauffeur’s License in good standing and valid NYS driving privileges in order to drive for-hire.
