Suffolk County Taxi & Limousine Commission (SCTLC)

As the business of transporting passengers in pre-arranged, for-hire vehicles is a vital and integral part of Suffolk County’s transportation system, the Suffolk County Taxi & Limousine Commission (SCTLC) was created.

The Suffolk County Taxi & Limousine Commission (SCTLC) strives to achieve two main goals to better protect that system. First, to guard against the dangers posed to residents by unsafe operation of taxicabs, limousines and livery vehicles, and second, to protect the free commerce of for-hire vehicle operators.

The SCTLC operates under the auspices of the Suffolk County Department of Labor Licensing and Consumer Affairs. Registration applications can be obtained in person, requested by mail or downloaded.

Suffolk County Taxi and Limousine Commission regulates the registration of for-hire vehicles operating in Suffolk County and is empowered to take action enforcing the registration as well as the rules and regulations requirement across the industry necessary to ensure a fair, safe and pleasant riding experience for all passengers.
