Driver Certification

Public Passenger Vehicle (PPV) Driver Certification

In order to operate a taxi, transportation network vehicle or shuttle for-hire in Eugene and Springfield, a driver certification card is required. The card is issued by the City of Eugene for use in both cities. An applicant must be at least 21 years of age and possess a valid state-issued driver's license.
