Get a Driver Authorisation
The Queensland Government requires all Uber driver-partners to hold a current Booked Hire Driver Authorisation (DA). Here's how you can get one as quickly as possible.
Get a Driver's Authorisation (DA) in Queensland
1. Complete a medical
You are required to get a commercial standards medical check as part of your DA application. You can do this at your preferred GP, or at a local practice that may provide a discount to Uber driver-partners.
2. Submit DA application
Complete your DA application forms through your online login and lodge your application with your local Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) branch. At the time of lodgement you will be required to pay the application fee to DTMR. It typically takes 2-3 weeks for your application to be approved.
3. Upload your DA
We will give you a courtesy call once your DA has been approved by DTMR. If it's been over three weeks since submitting your DA application and you haven't heard from us, you can contact the DTMR on 13 23 80 to follow up on your application status. Once approved upload your interim authority or blue DA card to your Uber account.
