A MESSAGE TO PPA CERTIFIED DRIVERS
As you are probably aware, on October 17, 2014, “UberX” knowingly and intentionally began operations in Philadelphia without acquiring the proper certifications and in violation of the law. On January 29, 2015 “Lyft” also chose to violate the law and began operations in Philadelphia without proper certifications. PPA Certified drivers need to be aware that the TLD Enforcement department has identified several PPA certified drivers providing illegal service through the use on the UberX and Lyft smart phone apps. Those drivers have been placed out of service and were issued fines. In addition, we are seeking revocation of their PPA driver certificates. Don’t think it can’t happen to you. We have impounded 60 vehicles thus far for providing this type of service. Are you next?
REPORT “UberX” and “Lyft” VEHICLES
Call the PPA-TLD complaint line at 215-683-9440 and provide the license plate number, location and vehicle description.
Email TLDEnforcement@philapark.org and include the license plate number, location and vehicle description.
A MESSAGE TO GEGEN/UberBlack DRIVERS
Notice to all Industry Members
All applicants for driver certification must be able to sufficiently speak in the English language to communicate with the general public, to understand highway traffic signs and signals in the English language, to respond to official inquiries and to make verifiable entries on reports and records (see 52 Pa. Code §§ 1021.4 & 1057.4). Therefore, an application for new driver certification (DR-1) may only be filed upon proving proficiency in the English language. The DR-1 along with all other driver certification forms are located on the “Resources and Forms” page.
1. All persons applying for new driver certification must first prove their ability to sufficiently speak in the English Language. English Proficiency examinations will only be administered Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
2. Only after passing an English Proficiency Examination, may a person file a New Driver Certificate Application (DR-1) at the TLD Customer Service Window. The TLD Customer Service Window will only accept the filing of a DR-1 Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
3. NOTE: On dates scheduled for medallion sales beginning on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 and every Wednesday thereafter through July, English Proficiency examinations will be administered after 12:00 p.m. and DR-1 applications may be filed at the TLD Customer Service Window until 4:30 p.m.
This process applies to all DR-1 new driver certificate applications, regardless of the classification (taxicab, limousine or dual certification). If you have any questions or need further clarification, please contact the TLD at (215) 683-9895 or at TLDAdmin@philapark.org.
2015 WAV Driver Training Schedule Download
All WAV (wheelchair accessible vehicle) taxicabs must be operated by a certificated WAV taxicab driver. The TLD Administration Department is currently accepting no more than 146 WAV Driver Applications (DR-4) on a first-come, first-served basis until the regulatory cap is reached. The DR-4 application is located on the “Resources and Forms” page. The 2015 WAV Driver Training Schedule will be subject to change once the cap is reached. Continue to look back to this website page for current information. Below is a list of taxicab drivers who have successfully completed WAV driver training.
WAV Taxicab Driver Requirements
Effective September 2, 2015, the TLD has waived the WAV taxicab driver prerequisite outlined in 52 Pa. Code 1021.5a (b)(7)(i) requiring WAV taxicab driver applicants to have at least 2 years of Philadelphia taxicab service during the immediately preceding 3 years. Hence forth, the Authority will require WAV taxicab driver applicants to have just 1 year of Philadelphia taxicab service as an Authority certificated driver during the immediately preceding 3 years.
This waiver was granted in an effort to meet the needs of both the community of people with disabilities and industry members to provide WAV taxicab services in Philadelphia. This decision may be viewed here (Download).
All WAV taxicabs must be operated only by certified WAV taxicab drivers. The Authority’s WAV taxicab regulations along with Form No. DR-4 “WAV Driver Application” may be obtained on the TLD’s “Resources and Forms” page of this website. If you have any questions concerning the WAV taxicab driver requirements, please contact TLD Administration at TLDAdmin@philapark.org.
Test results will be posted on the website after 5 p.m. on the date of the test. If you pass the test, you may appear at the TLD Customer Service Window at 2415 S. Swanson Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148 after 1 p.m. the following business day to finish the process to obtain your driver certificate. All new driver applicants must submit the DR-2 Medical Form before a certificate will be issued. Please remember that you only have 3 attempts within 90 days from the filing date of the application to pass the test and be issued a certificate or the application will be voided. You cannot provide any taxicab, WAV taxicab or limousine service in Philadelphia until the proper certificate has been issued to you. All questions concerning driver certification may be directed to TLD Administration at TLDAdmin@philapark.org or by calling TLD Customer Service at (215) 683-9895.
