If you’re looking for commercial insurance in NYC that is TLC compliant and want to get a quote without having to step foot in an office, check out the Inshur app. Also, drivers in NYC can get 10% off of their quote if they sign up for a Nexar Dashcam ($49) on their checkout screen!

Every year drivers in New York City spend upwards of $3,000 to obtain commercial insurance. This commercial insurance is called TLC insurance and is required by The Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) to obtain a TLC permit. The TLC permit is required to give your first ride in NYC, which makes commercial insurance expensive and necessary.
Getting a quote for TLC insurance is often an archaic process. You have to go into an insurance office, fill out some paperwork, and get a quote. Then rinse and repeat if you want to compare policies and costs. It’s something I have absolutely zero desire to do whatsoever.
Inshur’s app aims to address this problem. They’re the first in New York City to let drivers get a quote and sign up for a commercial TLC insurance policy with just an app on their phones.
Regardless of who you decide to use for your commercial insurance, I think at least getting a quote from the Inshur app is smart. That way you are armed with a baseline on pricing while searching for your next policy.
