Vehicle and document requirements

Lexington

Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber? Most four-door cars do, but requirements vary by vehicle option. See if your vehicle qualifies and find out what documents you need to hit the road!

Minimum requirements

Vehicle

  • 15-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. In addition, Uber maintains automobile liability insurance on behalf of all U.S. partners. Learn about vehicle insurance here.

Uber Decal

Under local regulations for Kentucky, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place it on your passenger-side, front windshield facing outward. You can remove it when you decide to go offline and save it for the next time.

Once you become an Uber partner, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days.

While you wait for your Uber decal to arrive, you can print and use a temporary decal so that you can begin taking trips immediately.

If needed, you can also order a new decal here.

Vehicle Inspections

The state of Kentucky requires all partners to complete a vehicle inspection within 30 days of becoming active on the Uber platform. Click on the link below to find out how and where to complete your inspection.
