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.
