Tips: uploading your documents
Make sure all required details are clearly visible
Ensure your document contains all required details before uploading. The entire document should be clearly visible.
Upload your driver licence first
This will speed up the approval process when we need to cross-check your licence with other documents.
Original documents only
We do not accept photocopied documents, so please make sure you only upload original documents.
It may take up to 2 hours for your documents to be reviewed and verified.

Proof of identification
To drive using the Uber app, we will need a copy of your passport or birth certificate.
The image of your passport must clearly show your:
Legal given names (first name and any middle names) Surname Birth country Birth city Gender Date of birth Note: The example provided is of an Australian passport only. Generally, most nationality passports will be able to be used.

Ancillary certificate and X-condition
As part of the ridesharing regulations in Tasmania, all UberX driver-partners are required to hold an ancillary certificate and be issued an appropriate X-condition.
How can you get an ancillary certificate?
The good news is that we have been working closely with the Department of State Growth to ensure this process is as streamlined as possible for driver-partners.
As part of the ridesharing regulations in Tasmania, you are required to hold an ancillary certificate and be issued an appropriate X-condition. To apply, visit a Service Tasmania centre and be sure to take all required documents with you.
Do you already have an ancillary certificate?
Existing ancillary certificate holders will still need an application submitted to the Department of State Growth so that they can be issued the X-condition necessary for ridesharing in Tasmania.
If you already have an ancillary certificate, continue through the sign-up process and you'll be able to include the details of your current ancillary certificate in the application form.
Working with Children Check
All driver-partners in Tasmania are required by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles to hold a Working with Vulnerable People (Children) registration in order to obtain an Ancillary Certificate. This registration is a requirement to hold an Ancillary Certificate in Tasmania.
I'm already registered with a:
- 'Employment' or 'Employment/Volunteer' class of registration
Take a photo of your card and upload it to your profile at partners.uber.com.
- 'Volunteer' class of registration
You can upload and maintain the documents on your profile at partners.uber.com.
