Certificate Of Public Convenience

About CPC

For a hassle-free experience, our third-party service providers can claim certain documents for you instead! More details can be found here.

The CPC (Certificate of Public Convenience) is an official permit to operate as a TNVS, valid for 1 year and renewable for up to 7 years.

Since the CPC may take some time to process, Uber partners may operate under a PA first, which lasts for only 45 days. Details for PA applications can be found here.

Once you have submitted the requirements of your PA, we encourage you to start preparing your CPC requirements ahead of time so as to make the process as quick and easy for you as possible! Your CPC requirements should be submitted within your first 30 days of operating in order to avoid any future complications.
