Vehicle requirements in Costa Rica

Which car is right for you? Make sure it meets Uber car requirements in your city and remember that you’ll make more money if you keep your costs low.

Your vehicle must-haves

In Uber we want our partners to be able to sign up to the platform as efficiently and quickly as possible. For this, we have the option of virtual activation of collaborating partners. By uploading all your documents to your profile, passing the criminal background check and watch the video, we can activate you without you visiting one of our activation centers. Complete these steps to sign up today!
