Starting January 1, 2023, the City will discontinue issuing plate stickers for your licence and you will not be required to display plate stickers anymore. This does not affect the licence to operate your business and no further action is required from your end. For questions, please contact mlstaxilimo@toronto.ca.

There are two ways to become a taxicab owner:

Sale

To own a taxi, a licence is required. You can purchase an existing Taxicab Owner or Toronto Taxicab Owner licence from another owner.

Estate

You can transfer an existing Taxicab Owner licence or Toronto Taxicab Owner licence into the name of an Estate.

Please note: new licences are issued from our waiting list, which has been on hold since 2016.

To renew an active licence, visit the Licence & Permit Management and Renewal portal.

Taxicab owners who also wish to drive a taxicab, must be licensed as a Vehicle-for-Hire driver.
