Vehicle for Hire Licensing

Taxi, Livery and Limousines

Existing decals for 2017 (pink decal) are no longer valid as recent changes in statute have repealed the issuance of decals.  Having a previously issued 2017 decal does not remove the requirement to get a Vehicle for Hire company permit.

New businesses need to submit a paper application in order for the Department to set up their account. Once your completed application has been received, reviewed, and processed you will be notified on how to log onto the ServiceArizona business portal.
