How to Apply

Driver Accreditation

Information on how to apply for a Driver Accreditation from the Taxi Services Commission (TSC). Uber has compiled this guidance for those Driver Partners wanting to apply for a Driver Accreditation themselves.

Getting your Driver Accreditation

1

Complete the form and prepare your documents

To get started, complete the TSC's Driver Accreditation (digital) form and it will be emailed to you within 15 minutes. It’s often a good idea to book your medical assessment at this point as it may take a few days to get an appointment.

Prepare your documents before your medical assessment:

  • Print your Driver Accreditation Application form that you have received by email.
  • Print and complete a Driver Health Questionnaire. You’ll need to give this to your doctor at the start of your appointment.
  • Make copies of your Proof of Identity documents.
  • If you have held a driver's licence in a state other than Victoria in the past 3 years you will also need to provide a driving history extract from that state.

Attend your Medical Assessment

The TSC requires all applicants to undergo a medical assessment. Please make a booking with your local GP to have this completed.

When attending your medical don’t forget to bring:

  • your completed Driver Health Questionnaire;
  • Section 9 (Medical and Vision Acuity Assessment) of your Driver Accreditation application form;
  • if applicable, please bring your eyeglasses and medical prescriptions to the medical appointment.

The TSC requires that all Proof of Identity (POI) documents be certified. We recommend taking these documents (the original & a copy) with you to your medical appointment as Doctors are qualified to certify documents.

Note: If you plan to submit your application to the TSC in-person you do not need certified copies of your documents.

POI Documents Required:

  • your Full Victorian Drivers Licence; and
  • your Passport or Birth Certificate OR your Right to Work (if not an Australian Citizen)
