On May 31st, 2012 the Taxi and Limousine Commission passed rules allowing a pilot program to establish a new inspection station on Staten Island. This inspection station, located at the TLC’s office at 1893 Richmond Terrace, will perform visual inspections on For-Hire Vehicles affiliated with Staten Island bases. Vehicles not affiliated with a Staten Island base will have to continue the current inspection process at our Woodside facility. The required DMV inspections will be completed at garages located on Staten Island and will be selected by the TLC. Once the DMV inspection is complete, the vehicle will return to the TLC’s Staten Island office where a visual inspection will be performed. If the vehicle passes both DMV and visual inspection, a new inspection sticker will be placed on the vehicles rear window. This pilot program is set to start in October and will last for one year. This pilot program is expected to launch in October of 2012 and last for one year. After a year of implementation, the Commission will decide whether or not to make this a permanent procedure.
