How to get a TDLR IM License
Go to: https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/towing/towing.htm
On desktop, on the right side, there are links for Application for new license.
- Select – Apply for new license.
- Then Select – Tow Operator License
- Then Select – Tow Operator Incident Management
- Then fill out the information and submit it.
If you have any criminal history, you will need to fill out the criminal history questionnaire, which you will be prompted to do while filling out the information. This can take up to 12 weeks to approve, and we will not hire you until you are approved.
After you have applied, you will need to sign up for the test through Southwest Tow Operators.
To sign up for the test go to: http://swtowop.org/index.php/trainingsto
After you pass the test, you will be required to take an onsite class for 8 hours, also through Southwest Tow Operators.
Once all these steps are completed, you will have a TDLR IM License and be eligible for hire.
