- Driver Accreditation
As part of the Victorian Government's new rideshare regulations, every Uber Driver Partner will need to have a Driver Accreditation (DA), a special type of licence issued by the Taxi Services Commission (TSC) for ridesharing drivers.
Uber is working with the TSC to streamline the application process to make it easier for Uber Driver Partners to become Accredited. If at any point you want to obtain a Driver Accreditation yourself, please follow the guidance on the Driver Accreditation Process page.
Note: If you hold or obtain a Driver Accreditation, you are required to have held an Australian unrestricted driver’s licence for at least 6 months to partner with uberX, uberASSIST and/or uberSELECT.

Have held a full and current driver licence in an Australian state or territory or in New Zealand for at least 6 months

Fitness to drive
Be assessed as a suitable driver by the TSC based on your medical examination and criminal and driving history checks
