How to drive with Uber

Uber is a great way to be your own boss and earn extra cash. Most folks are eligible to drive on the Uber app—here’s what you need to know.

Hit the road

It's easy to get started

1. Sign up online

Tell us a little about yourself and your car by creating a driver profile.

2. Share some documents

We’ll need a copy of your driver's licence and some information for a screening. You can also sign your agreements online and add a vehicle to your account.

3. Start earning

Once your documents are approved, download the Uber Driver app to start earning on your schedule.

Training requirements

Quebec government regulations require drivers to complete the training and examination by January 10, 2021 to remain active on ridesharing.

Currently, there are only two vocational training centers offering the training. Here are their requirements:

  • $150 to register
  • Have a computer to complete the training (not available on mobile)

Local vehicle requirements

In addition to the minimum requirements above, each city has its own regulations for vehicles.

Documents to keep in your car

City bylaw regulators may request rides at any time to conduct vehicle and document inspections.

Be sure to keep the following documents in your vehicle when driving with Uber:

  • Driver's licence
  • Vehicle registration
  • Proof of insurance
  • Safety Standards Certificate (SSC)

Also, make sure to have any required Uber sticker(s) placed on your vehicle.
