DARP-ROTOW Enrollment Status of Active Tow Truck Companies

<b>NOTE:</b> This dataset reflects data as of 7/21/2023. The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) is working on an updated version of this dataset.

This dataset shows all active tow truck companies licensed by NYC Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) and the company's enrollment status in the Directed Accident Response Program (DARP) and/or the Rotation Tow Program (ROTOW).

In New York City, licensed tow companies may tow vehicles without prior consent of the owner of the vehicle only under:

Directed Accident Towing Program (DARP): Tow of vehicles that have been involved in an accident and cannot safely be driven under their own power;

Rotation Tow Program (ROTOW): Tow of stolen vehicles that have been recovered or abandoned, and when a vehicle is parked inconsistently with posted instructions on private property.

A business may apply to participate in DARP and ROTOW after holding a Tow Truck Company license for more than one year.
