We regulate chauffeurs that drive taxicabs, luxury sedans, stretch limousines, transport vans, transportation network company (TNC) vehicles, certified motor carrier (CMC) vehicles and paratransit service vehicles in Broward County as detailed in Chapter 22-½ of the Broward County Code of Ordinances. These drivers must register as a Chauffeur.
Minimum requirements for a registration include:
- A valid Florida driver license or be otherwise authorized to drive in Florida (Sec. 322.032, F.S.)
- Proof of citizenship or authorization to work in the United States
- Ability to speak, read, and write in English
- The mental, emotional and physical ability to safely carry out the duties inherent in operating a motor vehicle-for-hire.
Applicants must pass a criminal and driving record background check and other considerations outlined in the ordinance. Drivers for TNCs and CMCs must register as a chauffeur with the TNC or CMC itself, not with us.
Registrations issued by Broward County are valid for 2 years. They can be suspended or revoked for violations and are immediately invalidated if the registrant's driver license is suspended.
