COMMON CARRIER LICENSES: TCP "A", "B" and "C" above are the proper licenses that may be transferred to other party upon PUC approval (authorization). TCP "A" and "B" are "Common Carriers" serving the general public (serve everybody, individual or group, on a single load, exclusive charter, basis: you charge them on the basis of "Time ($$/hours, $$/days, etc)" or "Mileage ($$/mile)" or a combination of "Time and Mileage", with possible application of minimum requirements and gratuity: and, all pre-arranged at the time the customer books the service (not in the middle of the service). On the other hand, TCP "C" is very "Specialized" serving parties with their equipment for such "extreme sports" as River-Rafting, Hot-air Ballooning, etc: also see right side panel for more information.
         

ABOUT CHP INSPECTION:
Regardless of which ever license you choose above, you may still require CHP INSPECTION

FYI / Read Here!

A SHORT DESCRIPTION OF "TCP" LICENSES

WHAT IS TCP? 
TCP means "Transportation Charter Party Carrier of Passengers".

WHY TCP?
As you may already know, TCP is the quickest way to get into self-employment in the transportation industry. THIS WEBSITE IS
OPEN 24/7 TO ASSIST YOU!

TCP LETTER DESIGNATIONS:

Remember, in California (the global leader in limousine and other transportation service standards),  the "letter" at the end of the TCP-Number signifies the scope of service you are authorized to provide.
          For instance TCP-##-A or TCP-##-B or TCP-##-C  You may sell or buy a TCP Certificate as an individual (owner-operator), a limited liability company (LLC), a C-corporation, a partnership or other legal entity.

LET US HELP YOU! All you need now is follow the arrow and fill out the information for the license you need, and we get the correct applications (for the proper license for your business) for your signature and filing. Read more info on bottom of page.........▼

WHAT WE DO FOR YOU:
(no guessing! we help you figure things out quickly, and get you the proper license so you too can make money!)

TIC is a transportation industry consultant (not a governmental agency) helping people like you setup (prepare and file for the proper license, and assist you in answering difficult regulatory questions after you obtain your license) and or assist you in operating your own ground transportation business.
          Matter of fact, we set up this company with the primary purpose to market and sell our clients' transportation-for-hire services in the regulated market environment, in our own special way: airports, seaports, train stations, events, sports & entertainment, conventions, city-to-city, beaches, tours, party-on-wheels, conferences-on-wheels, about-town, schools, farms, etc. What is your target market and how do you plan to out maneuver the competition without TIC? As you can see, we are not quite there yet.

WHAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO DO WITH YOUR TCP LICENSE:
TCP-License allows you to operate Limousine, Livery, Tour-Bus (TCP: A or B or P), Specialized Charter (TCP: Z = Contract or Incidental Service; or TCP: S = Roundtrip Sightseeing Tour Service) or General Charter Services. You are prohibited from fixed/flat point-to-point fares under any TCP License. Under TCP (A, B, P or Z) you must always base your charges on Time (per hour, per
day ...)
or Mileage ($$ per mile....) or a a combination of Time and Mileage: we will give you a good example of how to charge your customer as we prepare your application for filing. Further, only one party (a group or an individual, etc) may pre-arrange and charter any given vehicle for the duration of the charter: charter means exclusive service to one party, thus no "shared charter" in the same vehicle.
          However, under TCP-##-S for round-trip sightseeing service, you charge per-person-per-roundtrip: a roundtrip means pick them up from their respective points or a general designated start-point, then take them through what you promised to show them for that roundtrip, and then bring them back to where they started: TCP-S is not a pickup and drop-off service.         

ABOUT YOUR EQUIPMENT (VEHICLE):
Now, the specific type of equipment (vehicle) you use for your pre-arranged passenger charter transportation
business depends, for the most part, on the customers you wish to serve: seriously considering public safety
and quality of service for all, you may elect to use Bus, Motor-coach, Sedan, SUV, Van, Station-wagon,
Rickshaw,  Motorbike, or other motorized equipment authorized by the state you wish to operate in (soon
you will find Vehicles on the left side of this page).

Was that enough information to get started? NOW, go back up and fill out the form for your own business: before you get
cold feet again, do something!
