As a result of industry hardship, the New York City Council is considering legislation to study the medallion industry. TLC has withheld enforcement against any medallion owner who has been unable to pay their renewal fee and TLC will continue withholding this enforcement while the Council considers legislation.
All taxis must still receive and pass three vehicle inspections per year. However, in a move to improve capacity at TLC’s Woodside Inspection Facility and improve convenience for taxi owners, your first taxi inspection in 2019 will occur at an offsite DMV inspection facility of your choice.
Your first vehicle inspection in 2019 will not occur at TLC’s Woodside Inspection Facility. The second and third vehicle inspections in 2019 will occur at TLC’s Woodside Inspection Facility as usual.
If you have any questions about where or when your next safety and emissions inspection will occur, please contact TLCexternalaffairs@tlc.nyc.gov.
To find an off-site DMV inspection facility that is convenient for you, please visit the DMV’s website at: https://process.dmv.ny.gov/FacilityLookup/.
