To drive with Uber in Quebec, your vehicle must pass an inspection unless exempt. This inspection must be completed periodically based on the vehicle age and usage. Get the details below.

Activate your vehicle

In Quebec, all partners unless exempt (see step 1 below) must pass a vehicle inspection respecting safety standards for road vehicles before driving.

If the mechanical inspection reveals minor defects, the required repairs will have to be completed within 48-hours and major defects must be repaired immediately. Otherwise, the vehicle cannot be put back into operation.
