The easiest way to start the TLC (Taxi and Limousine Commission) licensing process is to visit an Uber office. An Uber Expert will help in the submission of a TLC application and take the next steps. TLC cannot give a driver’s license until a driver has submitted all requirements and they have been reviewed and approved. If a driver applied for a new TLC Driver License then he must attend a 24 hour TLC course at an authorized school. Drivers must complete the course and pass the required exam within 90 days after filing of the application.
