STARTING DRIVING AND EARNING WITH UBER
You still can get an FHV driver’s license in NYC! And Uber’s Fast Lane program can help you get licensed and into an FHV plated vehicle by connecting you to rental partners and fleet-owners.

You can complete your application online on the TLC's website

Instructions for online applications
We encourage applicants to schedule an office appointment and complete the application with an Uber Expert. But if you submit an application online, it is very important to save your TLC application number (see image to right). This is needed to complete the rest of the license requirements.
