NYC requires a special license

Uber can help you get it

Uber in NYC has fantastic earning opportunities and offers you complete control over your own schedule. Unlike in other cities, you need a special license from the TLC (Taxi and Limousine Commission) to drive with Uber in New York City. Our goal is to help you get licensed and get a vehicle as quickly and inexpensively as possible. The whole process should take 4-6 weeks.
