As of April 1, 2019, we are not accepting new for-hire vehicle driver sign-ups in New York City, due in part to new TLC regulations.
If you did sign up to drive with Uber before April 1, but did not submit a TLC license application before April 1, your account has been placed on a waiting list. Applications that have been denied by the TLC will not be considered.
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.
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.
