Ride safely and in style in a licensed limo

April 19, 2011

By Staff

Before hiring a limousine or town car for a ride to the prom or a wedding, the state Department of Licensing reminds people to check to see if the company is licensed and legitimate.

Limousine operators in Washington must be licensed, carry sufficient liability insurance and undergo annual safety inspections from the Washington State Patrol. Chauffeurs must be at least 21, hold a valid driver’s license, complete a training course and pass a state patrol background check.

Check limousine companies’ licenses at the Department of Licensing website, www.dol.wa.gov. Follow the link for the “Business Licensing” tab. Or call the agency at 360-664-1414.

“There are many qualified and licensed limousine companies to choose from in Washington, but he sure to make sure the company is licensed, and check references before hiring one,” state Licensing Director Liz Luce said in a release.
