TLC Rental Marketplace: Who We Are
TLCRentalMarketplace.com has been a pivotal player in the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) rental industry for over ten years. The website was built for TLC drivers, by TLC drivers.
We launched the TLC Rental Marketplace because, as fleet owners ourselves, we had been encountering roadblocks that hindered our company’s growth. We realized that advertising our available TLC vehicles on a well-managed platform would boost business. I soon learned that several other fleet owners agreed this was a worthwhile venture.
As we continue to work diligently to make the TLC Rental Marketplace a successful arena for drivers and fleet owners to directly connect and achieve success, we welcome your feedback! How may we at Marketplace better serve you? Please send us an email!
Become A Rideshare Driver
Looking to become an Uber or Lyft driver? In addition to your car meeting certain requirements, heres the criteria:
The criteria include:
- A minimum age requirement of 21 years old for both Uber and Lyft
- Must be licensed in the US for at least one year, or three years (for Uber) if you’re under 23.
- Car insurance under your name. (Keep in mind, the insurance must also be in the same state you’ll be driving in and must meet that state’s minimum requirements)
- A Social Security number.
- Have a valid driver’s license issued by the USA
- Agree to a background check. The background check will look for any criminal history, car accidents, reckless driving charges, suspended licenses, DUIs, and history of operating a vehicle without insurance. The background checks are given by third parties. In New York City, DMV and criminal background checks are conducted by the Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) according to their licensing standards, not by Uber/Lyft.
