Vehicle requirements

Connecticut

Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber? Most four-door cars do, but requirements vary by vehicle option.

Minimum requirements

  • 12-year-old vehicle or newer
  • 4-door vehicle
  • Good condition with no cosmetic damage
  • No commercial branding

Registration

Uber accepts both official and temporary registration documents. The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify.

Insurance

All partners must maintain their own insurance policy in accordance with state and local laws. As part of statewide Transportation Network Company regulations for Connecticut, all partners must keep a paper copy of Certificates of Insurance (COI) in their vehicle while driving on the Uber platform—this includes the COIs associated with the rideshare insurance Uber maintains on behalf of its driver-partners.

Uber decal requirements

Beginning October 1, 2017, under statewide ridesharing regulations for Connecticut, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online.

The decal can be placed in the bottom passenger corner of your front 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.

While you wait for your Uber decal to arrive, you can print and use this temporary decal.

Obtaining the decal

Once you become an Uber partner, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it 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. You can also pick one up at your local Greenlight Hub.
