All persons who operate a taxicab or limousine on Delaware highways must have a valid license, endorsed to operate the taxicab or limousine. The driver must complete a defensive driving course within 30 days from an approved provider, complete a state and federal background check indicating no serious criminal offenses, not have had his/her license suspended or revoked for moving violations in the past three years, and pass the Class D knowledge exam. Please refer to Title 21, § 2763 for a complete list of requirements.

A taxicab and Limousine endorsement is non-transferrable.
