Annual vehicle inspections

1

Download an inspection form

California law requires Uber partners to inspect their vehicle every year or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Most inspection centers have forms available, but you may want to bring one just in case.

Find an inspection center

Uber partners with YourMechanic to provide free annual inspections when completed at a Greenlight location. Otherwise, schedule an inspection with a facility licensed by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair. Note that Uber does not cover inspection costs when performed by a third-party mechanic

Upload the completed form

Once you pass, upload the form and receipt to your account. Uber does not cover repairs or maintenance to pass an inspection.
