Any vehicle seating nine or fewer passengers and driver operated for hire is classified as a Taxicab.

Every taxicab that receives a medallion from the CMPD Taxicab Inspector is required to obtain a local taxicab license. A local business license is required for each car. Licenses are fifteen dollars ($15.00) each year which covers the calendar year.

    Important license information:

  • Taxicab renewals are due January 1st of each year.
  • Taxicab companies are responsible for the taxicab license if delinquent after January 31st.

  • If you obtain a new taxicab number from your taxicab company you must obtain a new license.
