Rule Full Text

The Taxi and Limousine Commission is proposing a new rule that would:
1) create a new short-term storage program for For-Hire Vehicle (FHV) licenses (“Short-Term FHV Storage Program”); and
2) clarify that, after August 31, 2023, the end date of the previous storage program, created during the height of the COVID19 pandemic (“COVID-19 FHV Storage Program”), licenses remaining in that program will not transfer over to the new Short-Term FHV Storage Program, and if not expired, will be subject to fines and suspension for failure to follow directives to exit the storage program, as well as revocation for non-use.

Attendees who need reasonable accommodation for a disablity such as a sign language translation should contact the agency by calling 1 (212) 676-1135 or emailing by August 16, 2023

    Please allow Transfer of personal TLC plates to corporation.
    Lots of people suffering from keeping the TLC plates under personal name, because of High Insurance Premiums and Driving history. If we do corporation, we could put any driver and get right insurance prices. Please help us to do so.

    My concern is that TLC fails to accommodate those of us that are serving our country in the armed forces and are deployed overseas or activated for a long period of time that keeping the FHV LICENSE BECOMES A HARDSHIP. So there should be rules different from those that apply to general population due to the special circumstances that those type of drivers face.
