Vehicle requirements

Edmonton
Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber? Most 4-door vehicles do, but requirements vary by service.

  • 4-door vehicle with independently opening doors

Registration

You must have a Class 1-55 vehicle registration to drive with Uber. Learn more here.

Please note: the Class 1-55 vehicle registration does not provide drivers with the same privileges as a taxi.

Insurance

Alberta has approved an insurance policy from Intact Insurance designed specifically for rideshare drivers. You can see our policy here. All drivers are also required to maintain a personal insurance policy. We recommend speaking with your provider to discuss ridesharing. For a rideshare-friendly insurance quote, please visit www.uber.aon.ca.

Your name must be visible on the insurance pink slip. If you’re the secondary driver, you must show proof of the policy document with your name on it.

Keeping the paper that the decals come with offers a place to put your sticker when not in use.
