OCTAP is an administrative program providing taxi regulatory services on behalf of all member agencies; which includes issuing taxicab company and driver permits once completed applications have been received, required fees are paid, all minimum qualifications and standards have been met, and the application approved. All permits are required to be renewed annually. Applications are only accepted in-person at the OCTAP office during normal business hours.
Driver Permit Photos:
OCTAP Driver Permit Applicants no longer need to submit passport photos as part of their application package. OCTAP has implemented a new photo system where driver permit photos are now taken at the OCTAP facility when an application package is submitted.
OCTAP now accepts credit cards for all permitting services*. Cards accepted are Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Network, Diners Club International, China Union Pay and JCB. Debit cards that are associated with a bank account (no pre-paid cards) are also accepted.
*First time company and driver permit applicants must pay with a cashier's check or money order.
