For-Hire Licensing Going Virtual

Updated October 20, 2020

For-hire drivers will soon have the option to renew or apply for their license online! A for-hire driver is any driver who is affiliated with a Transportation Network Company (TNC) or taxi company. Popular examples of TNCs include Uber and Lyft.

We are excited to provide a convenient and faster process for our customers. For-hire drivers will soon be able to apply or renew their license and pay the registration fee all online.

In the meantime, for-hire driver license applications are being accepted for new applicants via mail, email or the City Hall drop box.

Mail: Taxes & Licenses Dept., 808 W Spokane Falls Blvd, Spokane, WA 99201


Drop box: Outside City Hall on Post Street (label envelope Attn: Tax & Licenses)

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are not accepting applications in person.

The City of Spokane is extending expiration dates for all active for-hire driver licenses. A temporary, for-driver license with a new expiration date of June 30, 2021 will be issued to all active for-hire drivers. Temporary taxi decals will be issued for vehicles registered with active taxi for-hire operators. If you have recently moved, please update your address ASAP. Call Taxes & Licenses at 509.625.6070 or email tax& to receive your license extension and avoid any lapse with your service.
