You can drive with Uber even if you don't own a car. Here’s what you need to do:
Before hitting the road, you will need to submit the following documents:
After starting the signup process, you’ll be required to pass a background check. Processes for driver-partner background checks vary by city.
Tell us about yourself and your vehicle, if you have one. If you don’t, we may be able to connect you with a vehicle solutions provider, who could help you get one.
We’ll need you to upload a few documents, including your driver’s licence, so we can run a background check. Once we’ve reviewed everything, you can download the Uber partner app.
If the vehicle you plan to drive with Uber meets your city’s requirements, the next step is to arrange a vehicle inspection to confirm it is roadworthy.
Requirements vary by city. For more info, check out our city guides.
It is a requirement that driver-partners using the Uber Driver app in Australia have a citizenship, residency or a visa status that allows them to work. During the signup process, we will conduct a Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) check for driver-partners who are not able to provide an Australian Passport, Australian Birth Certificate or Australian Citizenship Certificate.
During the signup process, we will conduct a Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) check for driver-partners who are not able to provide an Australian Passport, Australian Birth Certificate or Australian Citizenship Certificate. If this check is successful, a copy of the results from National Crime Check will be provided via email.
In cases where we cannot verify a driver-partner’s right to work using the information they have provided, the driver-partner will be required to conduct a VEVO check independently and provide the result to us to continue through the signup process.
Alternatively, if a driver-partner has received their result and believes it to be incorrect, they can provide us with an updated result that proves their entitlement to work in Australia.
Driver-partners can obtain an updated VEVO check from the Department of Immigration’s website.
You can find more information on how to complete your VEVO check through the Department of Immigration’s online Help and Support centre.
At a minimum, you will need your passport or ImmiCard details and one of the following reference numbers:
You can find more information on checks resulting in an ‘error’ status through the Department of Immigration’s online Help and Support centre.
You may be required to contact the Department of Immigration if your details need updating.
You can email your updated result to us at email@example.com, using the subject line VEVO Check Result - YourEmailAddress. Please ensure that you provide the same email address that you used to create your driver-partner account so that your check can be verified.
