Tips for uploading your documents
Follow these tips to ensure that you successfully upload your documents the first time.
Use original documents
Please take photos of your original documents; photocopied documents are not accepted.
Capture the whole document
That means including all 4 edges. If any are cut off, try moving the camera farther away.
Take sharp, clear images
Take photos in a well-lit room and allow your camera to focus first. Avoid blur, glare, and reflections, and make sure text is easy to read.
Upload your driver's licence first
This will speed up the approval process when we need to cross-check your licence with other documents.

5. Vehicle inspection
