Vehicle requirements

Drive with Uber

Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber? Most 4-door cars do, but requirements vary depending on the vehicle option you choose. If you don’t own a car, we may be able to connect you with a vehicle solutions provider.

Uber's minimum requirements

All cars driving with Uber must be:

  • ANCAP 5-Star rated, or fall under our vehicle exemption policy
  • In excellent working condition
  • No older than the maximum age for the Uber vehicle option chosen
  • A 4-door car or passenger van
  • No more than 12-seaters, including the driver’s seat
  • Able to pass a vehicle inspection
  • Registered and CTP-insured in your state
  • Free from cosmetic damage (e.g. scuff marks, scratches and indentations such as hail damage)
  • Free from commercial branding (e.g. graphics or wraps greater than 20cm by 20cm)

Other minimum rules apply to specific vehicle options.

* Uber reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to amend this list of vehicle requirements and/or accepted vehicles at any time.


All vehicles driving with Uber must be covered by compulsory third party (CTP) insurance, and have at least third-party property damage insurance. To drive with UberX, you also need to be listed on the car's property damage insurance policy, even if you are not the main policyholder.
