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.
3. Get a vehicle inspection
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.
VEVO (right to work) check
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.
