Invitation for Cruising Light Producer

Starting March 16, 2017, the Department of For-Hire Vehicles is inviting businesses to become approved producers of a new, low-cost taxicab cruising light. This new cruising light will replace the legacy patented dome light that was required for all taxicabs beginning in November 2013.  The new cruising light is required for all new vehicles beginning March 31, 2017. The new light is expected to lower the costs to vehicle owners because approved producers may manufacture and sell the light for at least 12 months with no license agreement and no procurement with the District, and there is no limit on the number of producers who may be approved. Interested businesses are encouraged to review the application posted below and to apply promptly for approval.
