What is a TLC physical exam?
A TLC physical exam is essential for drivers who want a NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) license. Without a TLC license, you cannot drive a Lyft, Uber or Limousine in New York City. In order to get a TLC license you’ll need to complete a physical exam. You can get a TLC medical exam on the same day with Nao Medical primary care services.

With Nao Medical’s primary care, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We’re open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

Who is required to get a TLC physical?
The drivers of yellow or medallion taxi cabs, green or boro taxis, uber drivers, Lyft drivers, luxury limousines, and black car limos are required to pass a TLC Exam in New York City.
What is included in a TLC physical exam?
A TLC physical exam includes a review of your and your family’s medical history, an assessment of your blood pressure, heart rate, hearing and vision, and an overall physical.
What do I need to bring to the appointment?
Print out the NYC TLD medical certification form and bring it to your appointment. If you don’t have one, the urgent care clinic can provide you with one. Bring your NY state driver’s license, a list of medications you take, medical history, and recent medical records.
What happens after the TLC exam?
After the TLC exam, the licensed medical provider will certify that you have completed the physical exam and will determine if you are medically cleared to operate a TLC vehicle.
When should I get a TLC medical exam?
You should get a TLC medical exam as soon as possible since you only have 60 days from the date you submitted a TLC application to get the physical exam.
Does my insurance cover this primary care service?
At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.
