Temporary Operating Permit for Extra Vehicles
(TOPs)

Sample Temporary Operating Permit

Sometimes a licensee needs extra taxis, limousines or other passenger directed vehicles (“PDVs”) for a short time.  Temporary Operating Permits (TOPs) allow for this.

The Board makes decisions on TOP applications it gets from licensees with a PDV special authorization. The test is “urgent and temporary need”.  More information about TOPs is provided below. 

PT Board Permits

PT Branch Permits

The Registrar of Passenger Transportation also has authority to issue some TOPs. This includes TOPs for substitute vehicles.  See the PT Branch website for details.
