UberMNLTips Guide to TNVS and LTFRB Accreditation

After you’ve signed up as an Uber Partner, you now need to get TNVS Accreditation in accordance to the LTFRB Ridesharing Regulation. Don’t worry, Uber will be facilitating the whole thing so you don’t need to physically go to LTFRB and secure your CPC (Certificate of Public Convenience) Franchise.

Before we go to the process and requirements, let’s first answer some FAQs to get a clearer picture of the LTFRB Regulation and the incidental TNVS Accreditation. Also, you might want to read this article about what TNVS and LTFRB Accreditation really means for Uber Partners.

It’s also important that you know and you understand where the regulations are based. We’ve curated all the Memoranda issued by the  Land Transportation Franchising & Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for TNCs and TNVS. You can download them below:
