    2. About this Application:

      Due to the documents and signature required to complete your background investigation, the process of applying for a taxicab driver's permit through on-line application is two-part. The first part will allow the Newport News Police Department to begin the process and run a criminal record history check. You will be telephoned by a member of the Department to securely gather personal information such as social security number and date of birth.

      Once that is done, you will be contacted with either reason for denial of your application, or to set a time to come into the office. When you come in, you will need to provide any and all required documents, and sign the information form.

      Each application will be reviewed carefully and consideration will be given to all relevant information. If you have been convicted of any criminal offenses, you are advised to submit written explanation with your application. Any documentation you provide as part of your explanation of any criminal history should be scanned in and e-mailed or faxed to the Taxicab Permit Examiner at 757-975-5075 (fax), or personally deliver to the office 3303 Jefferson Avenue, Newport News, VA 23607.
