Vehicle requirements

New Jersey

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.

Minimum requirements

  • 15-year old vehicle or newer unless otherwise stated (Note: Some vehicle models have a higher minimum year requirement). For UberBlack and UberBlack SUV, vehicles must be 2013 or newer for now, but starting January 1, 2020, we'll enforce a 5-year rolling minimum vehicle year (2015 or newer by 2020).
  • 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. For uberX and uberXL in NJ that means valid insurance with coverage that meets or exceeds New Jersey’s minimum financial responsibility requirements, with the partner's name on the insurance policy.

In addition, Uber maintains automobile liability insurance on behalf of all U.S. partners.

Uber vehicle decals

Under local regulations for New Jersey, all partners must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place it on your front passenger 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.

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.
