When operating as a licensed livery driver you need to have available for inspection by the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division written evidence of your criminal background checks. Your criminal background checks need to be completed before you start operating as a licensed livery driver but don’t need to be included in your livery license application.
Information you are likely to need to complete the background check:
Arizona has a number of approved background check providers that are accepted for the Vehicle for Hire permit application process but a good place to start is the Arizona Department of Public Safety
To operate as a licensed livery driver you need to have valid commercial auto insurance. Your insurance will need to have a commercial motor vehicle liability coverage of at least $250,000 and commercial uninsured motorist coverage of at least $250,000.
