Employment with Elite Limo
Think you have what it takes to be part of the Elite Limousines team? We are always interviewing dependable people with friendly faces and customer service experience. Sometimes we wake up really early, and sometimes we stay up really late. Most times we wait patiently for our clients, and on the last minute ones we may have to hurry to get there. Hurry Up & Wait! Remember, here it’s all about the chauffeur, being all about the client! Our clients don’t wait for us, we wait for them! Dependability and punctuality is where the chauffeurs’ job starts, and customer service is where it ends.
Here we say:
“Drivers deliver pizza, chauffeurs deliver service!”
We have strict dress & ethics codes, written, monitored processes and procedures, and on-going training for all facets of the job and an environment of teamwork to get the job done right for every client.
Interested? Think you’re up to the responsibility? Can you keep Our Promise? Below you will find the information on the licensing requirements to become a Houston area personal chauffeur, we’ll train you from there!
City of Houston Limousine License*
In order to qualify for employment as a personal chauffeur at Elite Limousines of Houston, you will first have to obtain a Houston City Chauffeurs’ license. This Houston City license is required to transport guests (for-hire services) in the Harris County area. We get a lot of calls and questions from interested people about how to do this. Below is a link to the COH website, the current form and its instructions.
*The city always seems to be “adjusting” its forms & requirements, so we recommend that you call the number on the form to ensure you are proceeding correctly through the process.

COH Chauffeurs License Application
There is currently a $39 fee for the Houston Chauffeurs’ License as well as a $16 fee for HAS badges. There is a requirement of fingerprinting, an FBI background check, a warrants check, drug testing and a cursory medical evaluation. The testing is at your own expense.
Houston Airport System (HAS) Badges
As part of your pilgrimage in search of the venerable and somewhat elusive Houston Chauffeurs’ license, you will have to go to IAH airport Terminal A Badging Department to apply for your HAS airport badges. The HAS airport badges are required to pick up clients at the airport and, since corporate transportation is the bulk of our work, an HAS badge is a condition of employment at Elite Limousines of Houston.
The airport will NOT issue you a badge unless you pass the background checks, correctly and completely fill out the required forms, and are sponsored by a recognized company (like Elite Limousines of Houston!).
We will only sponsor candidates that we feel (after a brief interview) show promise in meeting our stringent hiring criteria. (i.e. – Just because we sponsor you, doesn’t mean we are obligated to hire you or continue your employment if you fail to perform.) Also, should you be terminated, we are REQUIRED by the Houston Airport System to notify them and de-activate your badges (Your COH chauffeurs’ license will not be affected.). If you wish to continue with another company, the HAS will require you to fill out another form with your new sponsoring company. At this time no other fees are required for the change in sponsors.
Below is a link to the HAS website, the current badging form and its instructions.
