Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why do I need a WWVP registration card?
The ACT Government now requires all point to point transport providers, including rideshare drivers, to have a WWVP registration card.
2. What does a WWVP registration card look like?
The WWVP registration card is a physical card, the same size and security content as a driver’s licence. It shows your name, photo, registration number, and the card expiration date.
3. How long does it take to get the WWVP registration card?
Access Canberra’s average processing time is 4-6 weeks from lodging the application in an Access Canberra Service Centre (photograph and proof of identity) to receiving the registration card. If you have any concerns about the requirement or your eligibility and would like to discuss them, you can contact Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
4. How much does the WWVP registration cost?
The current fee is $82.00. If a registered person loses their registration card then a replacement fee is charged by Access Canberra.
5. How do I complete the form?
The following selections will generally apply to ridesharing drivers when completing the WWVP registration application.
- Purpose of registration: Select “Self-employed” - you’re your own boss when driving using the Uber App!
- Registration type: Select the “General Registration” type instead of one of the “Conditional” options
- One question asks “Can you provide details for your regulated activity employer/organisation?” Please note that Uber does not employ rideshare drivers and we recommend you select ‘No’ to this question.
You agree that nothing in the process of you applying for a WWVP registration with Access Canberra indicates that Rasier Pacific V.O.F. or any of its related entities (“Uber”) employs or engages you directly or indirectly. Uber makes available a software application service to driver-partners (“Uber App”). Driver-partners who use the Uber App are not employees or subcontractors of Uber and their relationship with Uber or the Uber App does not give rise to any of these relationships. Uber’s request for your working with vulnerable children registration details does not, will not and will not be deemed to, create a relationship of employment or subcontracting between you and Uber.
