Do you know a licensed professional driver that should be recognized for exceptional service or leadership contribution to the public transportation sector?


The International Association of Transportation Regulators' (IATR’s) Driver of the Year Award is recognition by government transportation professionals to a driver who has provided excellent service to passengers, and has performed in a manner that exemplifies the highest level of the profession. The award will be presented as part of the IATR gala awards ceremony, which will be held on September 24 at the Memphis show. Associate or industry members will not be able to attend the conference unless they sponsor. Unless you are a first-time attendee. Any questions regarding sponsoring, please send an email to info@iatr.global.

The award highlights the achievements of a driver, past or present, while working as a taxicab, limousine, sedan, black car, livery, or other type of for-hire vehicle driver. This year, at the IATR's Conference, the organization will be honoring a driver or drivers who went above and beyond to help the public during the pandemic.
