Vehicle options in Canada
The most popular vehicle option for riders.
Vehicle's model year must be 10 years or newer to qualify to drive with UberX.
Seat extra passengers—and get higher fares—with your high-capacity vehicle. They must seat at least 6 riders in addition to the driver.
All vehicles must be 2008 (58 / 08) plates or newer. Many SUV vehicle models qualify to drive with UberXL. See our list of popular models, but others may qualify. Drive with vehicles that meet Uber car requirements in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Bristol and other cities in the UK.
We've set ourselves the bold aim of making every car on the Uber app in London fully electric by 2025.
Drivers must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place one on your rear passenger windshield facing outward. You can remove it when you decide to go offline and save it for the next time. Pro tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.
We'll send your Uber sticker to your mailing address.
