Safety and Emissions

The TLC Safety and Emissions division conducts inspections on TLC-licensed vehicles. Each year, a staff of approximately 70 conducts over 153,000 vehicle inspections. Located at TLC’s Woodside facility, Safety and Emissions is a New York State licensed inspection facility, testing for all NYS-required safety and emissions elements such as properly functioning brakes, seatbelts, lights, suspension components, and emission systems. Additionally, vehicles are inspected for all TLC-required equipment and markings, such as taximeters in yellow and green cabs and base markings on livery vehicles. Only vehicles that successfully pass TLC inspection can be used to transport passengers for hire.
