      Taking the Horse Drawn Carriage Operator's Course and successfully completing the exam does not satisfy all of the regulatory requirements of other City and State Agencies. It is the business owner's responsibility to apply for all other permits, licenses, and authorizations required by other City and State Agencies. Failure to comply with all relevant regulations, including those under the jurisdiction of other Agencies, may result in the suspension of DOHMH permits until proof of compliance is provided.
