TLC Upload Portal

TLC’s Upload Portal (TLC UP) is a quick, easy, and convenient way to submit your required items to the TLC. TLC UP allows you to submit your documents to TLC and gives you an inside look into the status of the items you have submitted, additional information on your license application and important information on appointments or documents we may have sent you.  It is unique to your license and is available whenever you want, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to check on the status of your application. 

Please wait at least one (1) hour from the time you submitted your application in LARS before going into TLC UP to upload your documents.  If you access TLC UP earlier than one hour from the time you submitted your application, you will not see the most up-to-date information.

You will receive text message(s) and/or emails from TLC on the item(s) that you are missing and/or did not fulfill the requirements for your new driver or vehicle license application.  TLC cannot approve your new license application until you have submitted all required items and they have been reviewed and approved.

You are free to contact any of the organizations listed here  for assistance.  Please note that these organizations are not part of TLC and TLC does not assume any responsibility if you decide to contact any of these organizations.
