Signing up with Uber in Western Australia
After you've signed up for a driver account, upload a few documents for verification including your Western Australia driver’s licence, proof of identification such as passport or birth certificate, vehicle insurance, and a valid profile photo.
Get authorised to drive using Uber
Western Australia regulations require drivers using Uber to show proof of an F or T extension, plus the appropriate vehicle licences (see step 3). Before you can apply for an F or T extension, you will first need to pass a medical assessment and lodge a background check.
Find more information about the authorisation process on our Get a Licence page.
Get the required vehicle licensing
You'll need to get 3F Motor Injury Insurance on your vehicle registration, and an Passenger Transport Vehicle (PTV) On-demand Charter (OD-C) authorisation.
As part of this process, you'll need to get a vehicle inspection for safety reasons. You can book your DoT accredited vehicle inspection when you apply for the PTV authorisation.
