“I can confirm that the individual held a TLC For-Hire Vehicle Driver’s License from March 2012 through March 2015, at which time it lapsed and was not renewed. As taxi and for-hire vehicle drivers are independent contractors and not employees, I, unfortunately, have no way of knowing whether he drove for any particular base, or whether he simply got the license but didn’t drive at all. That said, since he held an FHV license, if in fact, he did drive, we do know that it could not have been a yellow taxi.”
