Arizona Taxi Laws -

  • The driver must have a valid Arizona license.
  • The vehicle must be properly registered.
  • An insurance policy of $300,000 or more, depending on passenger capacity, must be in effect. If an uninsured vehicle is involved in an accident, the passenger may not be covered.
  • Taxi insurance must cover passengers in the event of injury, property damage, and an accident involving an uninsured or uninsured motorist.
  • Taxis must use a sealed taximeter.
  • Livery vehicles are allowed to transport passengers for a flat rate. They must show the rates with one-inch letters at least until the passenger has agreed on the fare.
  • Limousines cannot solicit fares. They must be hired in advance.
  • Taxis must have a valid taxi license plate.
  • Arizona law also requires that all taxis and livery vehicles display a current sticker in the lower right-hand corner of their rear windshield. Limousines must have this sticker in the vehicle at all times, but can choose not to display it.

What To Look For When Hiring A Taxi or Car Service
When hiring a vehicle to take you somewhere, look for certain things that guarantee your taxi or livery vehicle is registered and has appropriate insurance:

  • A Weights and Measures sticker with a current year should be in the right-hand rear window of a taxi or livery vehicle.
  • The posted rates must be inside and outside of the vehicle in letters that are at least one inch high. If you're hiring a livery vehicle, look for the posted rates, which must be based on either a geographic zone or on a flat rate.
  • Check the license plate. Most taxi plates contain the letter "Z," though other plates may be allowed as well.
  • Check the meter. Look for a wire seal that is designed to prevent tampering.
  • If you spot an illegal taxi, please call AZ Weights and Measures at 602-255-5211 or 1-800-277-6675. You can also file a complaint online by visiting the Arizona Department of Weights and Measures online.
