How do I become a Missouri licensed Transportation Network Company (TNC)?
A Transportation Network Company (TNC) is a corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, or other entity that is licensed pursuant to Sections 387.400 through 387.440, RSMo, and operating in the state of Missouri that uses a digital network to connect TNC riders to TNC drivers who provide prearranged rides.
Beginning August 28, 2017, a TNC must obtain a business license from the Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Bureau, before operating in the state of Missouri. The steps to apply for an initial TNC business license are:
- Complete an online TNC business license application through the MyDMV website;
- Apply for a MyDMV public portal account during the application process;
- Pay an annual license fee of $5,000.
The same requirements apply for renewing a TNC business license, with a few exceptions:
- Applicants will not have to apply for another MyDMV public portal account as one was previously assigned.
A TNC business license is valid for 12 months.
