The TLC will temporarily allow Agents and Medallion Owners interested in working with experienced FHV drivers who want to drive a yellow taxi until the test is available in early 2016.
Agents or Medallion Owners interested in working with experienced FHV drivers are invited to participate in the following pre-test process:
Step 1: Identify the drivers who are interested in a Med/FHV license by sending the TLC a list with the following information for each driver:
Step 3: If the FHV driver passes the TLC check, the driver will be given a conditional Med/FHV license until the Med/FHV license test is made available in early 2016.
NOTE: Drivers in this category will have 60 days from the introduction of the test to successfully pass it and thereby receive a permanent Med/FHV license.
FHV drivers who qualify will be required to complete the test in order to receive a permanent Med/FHV license to drive a yellow taxi and will not require certification by an Agent or Medallion Owner.
An Industry Notice will be published with the test is made available in 2016.
