Nassau County is empowered by the State of New York General Municipal Law, Section 181 to register all for-hire vehicles operating within the County. The Nassau County Taxi & Limousine Commission is the department responsible for registering for-hire vehicles and enforcing the Rules & Regulations governing that registration.
The purpose of registering all for-hire vehicles within Nassau County is to ensure that you, the passenger, can be assured that the ride you hire is mechanically sound, contains proper safety equipment, and maintains proper levels of liability insurance. In addition, the Taxi & Limousine Commission licenses those drivers who are operating in municipalities that do not issue their own licenses.
Through our Rules & Regulations, you can be confident that when you hire a properly registered and licensed ride, you are purchasing safe and convenient transportation from any point within the County.
