How to put your TLC For-Hire Vehicle (FHV) license in storage
You must first surrender your TLC license plates to the DMV.
Scan and email the TLC FHV storage form to: FHVStorage@tlc.nyc.gov. Please do not come to the TLC Long Island City Facility to submit documents. Only emailed documents will be accepted.
Vehicle license status and email notification.
The vehicle’s license status will no longer be active, and the status will be changed to “in storage.” The vehicle cannot be operated for hire while the vehicle license is in storage. After one hundred eighty (180) days, you will be notified to remove the vehicle license from storage, or the license will be closed.
