Limousine Plate Licence
All limousines picking up and dropping off passengers (for a fee/fare) in Calgary must be licensed with the Vehicle for Hire office. The only exception being when a passenger is picked up outside the city they may be dropped off in the city.
Every licensed limousine operating in the city must have a Limousine Plate Licence (LPL). The LPL (in the form of a numbered decal) must be affixed to the vehicle’s back window, lower left corner. The vehicle registration process must be completed at the Vehicle for Hire office. Operating an unlicensed limousine may result in enforcement action.
Obtaining a limousine plate
An individual holding a Taxi Driver’s Licence (allowing them to drive a limousine) or a Brokerage licensed to provide limousine services within Calgary, may attend the Vehicle for Hire office to purchase the LPL.
Renewing a limousine plate
Each limousine plate (decal) expires annually on September 30, regardless of the vehicle status (example: being repaired). If the plate is not renewed on time, the limousine cannot operate.
Renewal notifications are sent by mail and industry communications.
