How to Renew Your TLC Vehicle License

  • To renew your TLC vehicle license you must make an online payment and then email all other required documents. TLC does not accept in-person renewal applications, payments, or document submissions.

    If you fail to renew your license by the expiration date you will have an additional 60 days to complete all your renewal requirements.

    No additional extension will be granted.

    Your license will remain expired until TLC processes and approves your late renewal application.

    If you completed any requirement after the expiration date of your license you will be sent a notification that you owe a $25.00 late fee. The late fee can be paid at LARS. Failure to comply will result in the suspension of your license until the late fee is paid.

    You must pay the renewal fee online. Go here to make payment.

    All additional requirements for the renewal of the license must be e-mailed to renewvehmr@tlc.nyc.gov

    To speed processing, please include your TLC Vehicle License number on all documents you submit.

    After you have passed the renewal TLC inspection, you must inspect your vehicle at a NYS DMV approved inspection station every 4 months to keep your vehicle license valid.
    Visit a NYS licensed DMV inspection station to complete your tri-annual inspections. You do not need to have another DMV inspection at the TLC inspection site until you renew your vehicle license or change your vehicle.
