Mobile business licensing

If your business operates outdoors, such as a tow truck, ice cream truck, food truck, refreshment cart, driving school or parking lot, it’s considered a mobile business.

Vehicles used by the general public like taxicabs and limousines are also considered mobile businesses. There are different licence requirements for owners and drivers.

Apply for a mobile business licence

Most mobile business licenses must be applied for in person. Only certain types of driver’s licences can be applied for online at this time.

Book an appointment to submit your documents at our office, located on the ground floor at 3235 Mavis Road.

You’ll only be admitted to the building if you have a scheduled appointment. Only one person may attend the appointment. If you’re late by 10 minutes or more, your appointment will be cancelled and you’ll need to reschedule.

Completing an application may not guarantee a licence. Vehicle inspections or site inspections may also be required.

If you have any questions about licence requirements, call 311 (905-615-4311 outside City limits) or contact us online.
