Vehicle inspections in South Australia
Get on the road with Uber
You'll need a vehicle safety inspection to drive with Uber in Adelaide. It’s a good idea to check your car meets your city's requirements before having it inspected.
In Adelaide, all driver-partners need to pass a vehicle inspection before taking their first trip.
Booking an inspection
The vehicle inspection normally takes less than 30 minutes and can be done through a third-party vehicle inspection service. Once you have completed your vehicle inspection, please take a photo of the inspection report, and upload the photo of the inspection report to your profile.
If you are new to the Uber Driver app, you may proceed with the next step in your sign up process once you pass your inspection.
Annual car inspections
You’ll need to have your car inspected every 12 months.
We’ll send you an email to let you know when it’s time to get your car checked again.
The cost of an inspection completed with Rightway Automotive Services is $75.00.
Vehicle inspection tips
Common issues to look out for
Ensure each tyre has a sufficient tread depth of at least 1.5mm. To save time, we recommend you check your tyres prior to getting an inspection.
Ensure all lights are working, including headlights, park lights, signal indicator lights and brake lights.
Check your car is not leaking oil or fuel.
