Transfer a Licence
The transferor must maintain care and control over the operations under the passenger transportation licence until a decision on the transfer has been made and, if approved, a new licence is issued.
A licensee is responsible for renewing its licence pending a transfer application. A licence that is not renewed expires. If the licence expires, then a pending transfer application also expires.
A passenger transportation licence can be transferred from a one legal entity to another. A legal entity may be a person or sole proprietor, a partnership or a corporation.
How to Apply
The entity who is transferring the licence is called the “transferor”. The entity who is obtaining the licence is called the “transferee”. Both are involved in the application process.
If you are transferring a hybrid licence (both special and general authorization) complete an application for each one, but only one application fee is required, provided both transfer applications are filed at the same time.
The transferee must obtain a safety certificate in the legal name of the transferee, with a satisfactory rating, issued by a jurisdiction in North America before applying to transfer an existing passenger transportation licence.
If your application is approved, the transferee will submit the following vehicle documents
