Under local regulations for British Columbia, all partners must display Uber decals on their vehicle while online. Place one on your front windshield on the passenger side and rear windshield on the driver side facing outward. You can remove them when you decide to go offline and save them for the next time. Pro tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.
Once you become an Uber partner, we will mail out your decals. You should receive them within 7 business days. If you ever need a new decal after you become a partner, you can request a new one be mailed to you.
