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.

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.

3. Book your inspection

We have partnered with local Approved Inspection Stations across Brisbane to make it easier for you to have your vehicle inspected. Click the link below to book in with Redbook Inspect, or check the below map for additional inspection locations.

Common issues to look out for


Ensure each tyre has a sufficient tread depth of at least 1.5mm. To save time, we recommend you check your tyres prior to getting an inspection.


Ensure all lights are working, including headlights, park lights, signal indicator lights and brake lights.

Body damage

Ensure the body of your car is in good condition.
