TLC license application

How to submit your application

All FHV drivers in New York City need to get a TLC (Taxi and Limousine Commission) license. Here's how to submit your application.

Two ways to submit your application

How to apply

Option 1: Visit an Uber Greenlight Hub

The easiest way to start the TLC licensing process is to visit an Uber office. An Uber Expert will help you submit your TLC application and take your next steps.

Option 2: Submit your application online

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

  • Select 'Apply for New License' on the left side of the page
  • Select 'Driver' for application type
  • Select "TLC Driver's License (Medallion/For-Hire/Street Hail Livery Driver)"

    Save your TLC application number, you'll need it later in the application process.

Applying online

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.

This page is called the Payment Receipt and Checklist page—it will be the last page you see after submitting your payment.

Print or take a picture of the page and keep in a safe place.
