Vehicle inspections

Newcastle

You'll need a pink slip inspection to drive with Uber in NSW. It’s a good idea to check that your car meets your city's requirements before having it inspected.

Inspection requirements

An e-Safety Check, or “pink slip”, vehicle inspection is a required document to drive using Uber in NSW. This applies to driver-partners who are signing up, and current driver-partners getting an annual re-inspection as per the below requirement.

  • Vehicles aged 2013 - 2017 require a passed pink slip inspection before becoming active with uberX and require annual re-inspection.
  • Most vehicles aged 2008 - 2012 & 2018 do not require a pink slip inspection before becoming active with uberX, as they are already inspected annually during the registration renewal process. If your vehicle does require an inspection we will let you know.

All driver partners in NSW are required to pay $38 upfront for their vehicle inspections performed by Redbook. This charge applies to driver-partners who are signing up for the first time and who are getting an annual re-inspection.
