Vehicle inspections

Get on the road in Canberra

You'll need a vehicle safety inspection to drive with Uber in the ACT. It’s a good idea to check your car meets your city's requirements before having it inspected.

Book an inspection

In the ACT, all driver-partners need to pass an ACT Roadworthy vehicle inspection before taking their first trip with Uber. You'll also need to submit a passed ACT Roadworthy inspection as part of your application for rideshare accreditation to Access Canberra, and they require this to be dated within the last 30 days.

Please note that RedBook Inspect ACT will be closed until further notice. During this time, you can complete an ACT Roadworthy Inspection at any certified mechanic.

You will need to have your vehicle inspected every 12 months.
