During the COVID-19 public health crisis, Private for-Hire Transportation (PFHT) companies and drivers are facing an unexpected financial burden. To help provide companies and drivers temporary relief, we are offering the option to defer the payment of company, vehicle, and driver permit renewal fees until the end of December 2020.
*If you already have an approved deferral ending in June or October 2020 and wish to extend to December 2020, you do not need to do anything further. Previously approved deferrals will be automatically extended unless you contact us.*
Am I eligible? This agreement only applies to permits that expire in October and November 2020. Permits must be in good standing and otherwise would be approved for renewal.
How do I request a deferred payment plan?
How will I know if I've been approved? PBOT will review each request. If the agreement needs correction, PBOT will notify you that a correction needs to be made. After PBOT reviews the request, a notification will be sent to the permit holder approving or denying the request.
Who is responsible for payment? The individual who signs the agreement is the responsible party.
When and how will I pay the permit renewal fees? The amount owed must be paid in full and is due no later than December 31, 2020. Submit payment through the PFHT self-service portal.
