There are two ways to become a taxicab owner:


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


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.
