Principle and conditions

Private hire vehicles driven by foreign chauffeurs must obtain prior authorisation from the Commissioner of Police Department, before carrying passengers and their luggage in the Principality.

Once authorised, vehicle operators will be granted a unique, non-transferrable tax sticker for each vehicle.

This sticker, which is issued by the Commissioner of Police Department must be affixed to the inside of the vehicle, with the front visible from the outside, on the lower right corner of the windscreen.

In order for a company to be eligible to purchase a tax sticker, it must provide proof:

  • That it has no police record with the Police Department of Monaco
  • That it has, for at least two years (between 2017 and 2020, including 2020, with regard to the 2021 tax sticker), acquired at least one tax sticker
  • Of the legal existence of the activity carried out by the applicant for at least 3 years


The fees for 2021 are €750 for an annual sticker, €600 for the third sticker.


Collating the documents

You will need to provide:

  • An extract of the Kbis registration
  • An extract of the INSEE’s SIRENE register
  • Your certification as a company operating private hire vehicles
  • A professional liability insurance certificate
  • An extract of the applicant’s criminal record, issued by the legal authorities of their own country within the last three months
  • The "carte grise" or car registration document (the vehicle must be fully owned with permission to lease)
  • The invoice for the permanent red private hire vehicle sticker
  • A certificate of motor vehicle liability insurance (a document certifying that the applicant has taken out a specific professional insurance policy covering passengers transported in exchange for payment and that the policy is valid)
  • A list of chauffeurs employed by your company
  • Valid permits for each chauffeur 
  • In the case of ad hoc recruitment, a copy of the preliminary employment declaration, accompanied by the Director’s sworn affidavit that a background check on each employee’s clean criminal record has been made


On the day of your interview for the sticker, you will need to present the original documents.
