Vehicle inspections in Australia
You'll need a vehicle safety inspection to drive with Uber in your city. It’s a good idea to check your car meets your city's requirements before having it inspected.
Book an inspection
All driver-partners need to pass a vehicle inspection before taking their first trip with Uber. As part of our ongoing commitment to safety and quality, we've partnered with several third-party vehicle inspection services, including [names of companies] that can provide you with vehicle safety checks. You will need to have your vehicle inspected every 12 months (depends on your city).
Annual vehicle inspections
Your Certificate of Inspection is valid for 12 months from the time it is issued. To continue using the Uber app, you will need to obtain a new Certificate of Inspection each year.
1. Completing your inspection
Once you have booked in for your inspection the mechanic will perform the check. The mechanic will advise if there are any issues with your vehicle that prevent a Certificate of Inspection being issued.
2. Updating your certificate
When your Certificate of Inspection has been issued the mechanic will often submit a copy to Uber on your behalf. Otherwise you can upload a copy yourself at the below link.
