Alcohol delivery is optional

To opt in to complete alcohol deliveries, you will need to correctly answer 7 key questions about using the Uber Driver app for alcohol delivery in Victoria.

If you have opted in to complete alcohol deliveries and no longer wish to deliver alcohol for any reason, you can opt out of receiving alcohol delivery requests at any time by contacting our support team at help.uber.com.

Delivering alcohol

If the order you’re picking up contains alcohol, the app will prompt you to complete a set of tasks required by law. This process is the result of legal and regulatory requirements, not independent instructions or guidance by Uber.

Your responsibility to ensure you comply with the law

Remember, delivery partners are required to follow all applicable laws and regulations. This includes road safety laws and laws relating to the delivery of alcohol. Failing to do so could lead to a fine or imprisonment. Additionally, failing to comply with legal or regulatory requirements may be a violation of your Agreement with Uber and could therefore result in you losing access to the Uber app.

Alcohol and Minors: It is against the law to provide alcohol to a minor and you risk being fined in excess of $19,000.

Intoxication: It is against the law to provide alcohol to a person who is intoxicated. This can risk the licensee being fined in excess of $19,000.
