The little pink paper affixed to the windshield of "bangers" is over. Taxi drivers of Côte d'Or are invited to visit the prefecture to renew their professional card.
The former document, which did not present the card number and photo of the driver on the same component, will be replaced by a smaller card showing the identity of the driver on one side and visible from outside the vehicle.
Within three years
Now, the document will be printed by the Imprimerie Nationale in the same way as any other written identity document. This new secure card should help controls and reduce cases of fraud.
The renewal of cards is programmed in Côte-d'Or over three years from the month of April 2011. Professionals are invited to contact the prefecture, only by email, stating their name, phone number and professional card to the email address.
