I would try another state. This one is obviously not efficient enough for your liking.
It took me 2 weeks to get my orange card in the mail after I got my paper copy of the business license.
Since October they've had a huge backlog (8,000+ in mid October).
Was just down at the license office. They seem to think that as of January 1st, the receipt will no longer work and drivers will be fined if they don't have the orange card. Their suggestion was don't do pick ups or drop offs at the airport without the orange card as of January 1st.Since October they've had a huge backlog (8,000+ in mid October).
I applied online and it took a few weeks to get mine even in early October.
With all the last-minute/late applications coming in, it's likely not much better now.
Just keep your receipt with you for now.
That's just not fair. They've already given us a two month grace period, what's another month?Was just down at the license office.

Well, if the only place it is enforced is the airport, new drivers can just avoid picking up and dropping off there. I believe LAX had a somewhat similar situation at one time, and they survived.I'd think, that as long as you applied prior to November 1st or started driving after November 1st, any ticket issues could fought.
Not that you'd want the hassle.
But what are they going to do with new drivers?
Even without a backlog, it takes a week or so to get the card on the mail.
There has to be some sort of ongoing grace period so long as it's legal to apply online and start driving once you've applied - which is how it works right now.
Yeah but, I don't think it's fair that I make all of these thousands of dollars that I don't have to pay state income tax on, and then have to pay the county a whole twenty-five dollars. It's just not fair, I tell ya.If you would have been operating legally from the beginning, you would not have this problem. I had my card a month before it was required when I renewed, yes renewed my license because I have had it the whole 3 years I have been driving for Uber, and I always renew 30 days early, had it in the mail in 2 days after renewal. You wait and then have to get in line with 30,000 other drivers you suffer the consequences.
