The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) updated driver renewal proccess

  • Driver renewal payments will only be accepted on-line
  • Renewal documents can only be submitted by e-mail & mail
  • Walk-in submission process no longer available

 Starting April 1, 2016 the TLC is moving to an exclusively online payment process for driver license renewals, and an e-mail or mail process for the submission of required documents.  We will no longer accept in-person visits to renew driver licenses.

Renewal Payments: Effective April 1, 2016, drivers seeking to renew their licenses will only be able to make their renewal payments on-line by visiting  www.nyc.gov/tlc/lars. Drivers may pay their renewal fees with a debit card, credit card or e-check.  To avoid paying the convenience fee for using a credit or debit card, drivers should use e-check – it’s free! 

To access the online system and make your renewal payment, drivers need:

  • Current TLC Driver’s license number
  • Expiration date of TLC Driver’s license
  • Last 5 digits of DMV license number
  • A debit card, credit card or e-check information

Drivers who pay on-line will receive an e-mail receipt for their payment.

Renewal Document Submission: In addition, starting April 1, 2016, documents in support of renewal applications (e.g., medical forms, wheelchair accessible training certificates, etc.) may only be submitted either by e-mail to: renewdrivermr@tlc.nyc.gov or by mail to the TLC Renewals Unit, 31-00 47th Avenue, 3rd Floor, LIC, NY 11101.  For email submission, please scan or photograph the certificate and attach it to the email.

When and How to Renew:  Drivers will continue to receive letters 90 to 120 days before their license expiration dates with instructions on how to renew.  More information on renewing driver licenses is available here.
