Like Sir Charge said,I would be interested in driving a luxury coach bus,local only,not interstate like Greyhound. For a limo you need a TLC license,make good tips doing that.
I already have a TLC license I drive a Town Car now

TLC is the overpriced BS license you need to drive anything with a TLC or livery plate. You need a class E or CDL. Its really just fill out the application and give them their money. The 19-A is for school buses and I'm pretty sure its just some sort of medical thing that takes the place of the DOT medical, thats why the A3 covers municipal and school operations.

Did you have to take a defensive driving course prior to obtaining your TLC?

Yup and everytime you renew you need a new DDC and a urine test. Whats funny is that my Sanitation medical and TLC urine test were 3 days apart, it felt like all I was doin was peeing in cups haha.

Its a 2 year license except for the first year when your on probation. Its just an awkwardly large plastic license with your license number and picture on it. Similar to the the license on the partition in yellow cabs except ours is blue.

Means nothing unless you get pulled over by the TLC gestapo. NYPD really doesn't care about it, its all internal at TLC. The unfortunate part is that their tickets are much more expensive than anything issued by TLC and you get points on your regular license and TLC license if they catch you in a moving violation.
