COVID-19 update: The health and safety of everybody who uses Uber is always our priority. We encourage all drivers to do their part to help flatten the curve and stay home when possible–especially if you’re feeling sick. We remind drivers that Greenlight Hubs remain closed and a number of third-party services are not available. Account activation may be delayed as a result.
To become a driver, you'll need to add your 3-year personal Driver Abstract to your Uber profile. Learn what a Driver Abstract is and how to order one here.
What is a Driver Abstract
Your driver abstract is a summary of your driving record. It includes your merit and demerit points, convictions and suspensions. You can order your personal abstract at your nearest registry location.
Your driver abstract must be for a 3 or more year period and have been obtained within the last 30 days.
You cannot have a single major conviction on your abstract (4 demerit points or more), no more than 3 minor convictions (3 demerit points or less)
You cannot have any licence suspensions or driving without insurance convictions.
Merit courses have no impact on abstract eligibility
Please obtain your 3-year personal driver's abstract from any Alberta registry and bring it to the Edmonton Greenlight Hub.
How to get a Driver Abstract
1. Visit your nearest registry
Your nearest Service Alberta registry can provide your Driver Abstract. You'll need to bring an accepted form of ID along with you.
2. Fill out application
Bring your application to a Service Alberta registry agent. Wait to sign and date your form in front of the registry agent clerk.
