As of April 1, 2019, we are not accepting new for-hire vehicle driver sign-ups in New York City, due in part to new TLC regulations.
- Model year 2006 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 car or minivan
- Seats and seatbelts for at least 4 passengers and a driver
- Good condition with no cosmetic damage

You'll need to have a TLC license and TLC plates on your vehicle to be able to drive a for-hire-vehicle in New York City.
