Chauffeur

We regulate chauffeurs that drive taxicabs, luxury sedans, stretch limousines, transport vans, 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.


Applying for or Renewing a Chauffeur's Registration

If you drive a vehicle for hire, other than a TNC or CMC, you must register as a chauffeur with Broward County. Drivers for TNCs and CMCs must register with the company itself.

NOTICE: During the May 5, 2020 Broward County Board of County Commissioners Meeting, the Commissioners approved to extend Chauffeur Registrations that were due to expire in April, May, June or July until August 1, 2020.  

The Environmental and Consumer Protection Division is interested in any additional actions it might be able to undertake to help the vehicle for hire community during these most difficult times. If you have suggestions, please consider completing this short survey.
