Get a license in Belgium

With millions of riders all over the world, Uber is a great way to make money — but first you need a license to operate in Brussels. Four steps are required to obtain this license.

Apply for your license

1. Obtain your VAT number

To become a partner on the Uber network, you must be self-employed (part-time or full-time) or have a company. We invite you to contact Attentia if you need any assistance. If you want to set up a company, we advise you to reach out to an accountant who will help you in this process.

2. Find a vehicle that meets our requirements

Choosing the right vehicle is paramount: it is your most important work tool and will allow you to maximise your profitability. We accept on the Uber network vehicles with minimum 4 doors and that are maximum 7 years old. To know more about our conditions, please visit our vehicle requirements page below.

3. Get a commercial car insurance

In order to get your license, you will need to have an insurance that covers paid transportation. Don't hesitate to contact your broker or insurer to get more information on this. Our partner AON also offers competitive prices.

4. Request your LVC license

Once you have your car, insurance and VAT number, you can ask for your LVC license at Brussels Mobility. Do not forget to take into account the strict requirements regarding vehicles imposed by the authority.
