Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber? Most four-door cars do, but requirements vary by vehicle option. And if you don't have a car, we can help you get one. Only have two doors? No problem—scroll to the bottom to learn about Uber delivery services.

Registration

Uber accepts both official and temporary registration documents. The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify; however, it does need to be registered in the state of Colorado.

Uber vehicle decals

Under local regulations for Denver, Colorado, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place them on your front passenger windshield and rear passenger windshield facing outward. You can remove them when you decide to go offline and save them for the next time. Pro Tip: keep the paper they come with to place your sticker on when not in use.

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.

Displaying the Uber decal while driving with Uber is a requirement mandated by the PUC and is non-negotiable. We will notify you if you're in violation of this rule, but please be aware that continued violations can lead to account suspension or even deactivation.
