VIC Regulatory Requirement
As of 1 September 2018, whenever you're ‘online’ and completing trips using the Uber app, the local regulations require your vehicle to be identified as a commercial passenger vehicle. This requirement is part of the Victorian Government’s reforms to the commercial passenger vehicle industry. Uber will provide driver-partners with a removable sticker to be displayed on the passenger side of your vehicle's front windscreen.
It’s important that the sticker is placed on the passenger side of the vehicle - not the driver’s side - as Victorian regulations state that it must not be easily removable by a person seated in the driver’s seat.
If it is not properly displayed, or displayed when you are not driving with the Uber app, the local authorities may issue you with a fine. Please note displaying the sticker correctly is the driver's responsibility and Uber does not cover fines relating to the incorrect display of the sticker.
How do I apply my Uber sticker?
- Clean your front windscreen
- Apply the sticker to the inside rider side of the front windscreen.
- Remove the sticker whenever you go offline.
Pro Tip: When not in use, put the sticker on the piece of paper that it came on. This will help keep its stickiness.
