5 SIMPLE STEPS TO GETTING YOUR TLC LICENSE

If you want to pick up passengers in New York City, you need a TLC (Taxi and Limousine Commission) license. It's a pretty simple process, but it does take about 6 weeks to process, so the sooner you apply the sooner you can hit the road and start driving with Uber.
 

1. TAKE A DEFENSIVE DRIVING COURSE

• You need to have taken a defensive driving course within the last 6 months
• You can take one for FREE at the Uber office

2. GET EXAMINED BY A DOCTOR

• The last page of the TLC application is a Medical Certification Form
• You can schedule a FREE medical examination at the Uber office

3. GET A CLASS-E LICENSE (OR A CDL)

• Fill out MV44 form and take it to your local DMV
• If you already have a CDL, you don't need to change your license

4. FILL OUT THE TLC LICENSE APPLICATION

5. DROP OFF YOUR COMPLETED APPLICATION AT THE TLC

• Make sure you bring ALL DOCUMENTS from TLC checklist to your appointment:
o Printed and signed copy of the TLC Application
o Your original social security card and a copy of your social security card
o Your new DMV Class E license and a copy of it
o A credit card (you will be charged ~$100 for fingerprinting and processing at the TLC)
o Your original Defensive Driving Course certification and a copy of it
o You must also have watched this Video prior to your appointment
