Get on the road in Perth
You'll need a vehicle safety inspection to drive with Uber in Western Australia. It’s a good idea to check your car meets your city's requirements before having it inspected.
Book an inspection
In Western Australia, all vehicles need to pass an annual vehicle inspection at an Approved Inspection Station (AIS). This is a requirement for holding an Omnibus - Charter Vehicle Licence.
We've partnered with Redbook Inspect to offer you a fully accredited vehicle inspection, conveniently located at 90 Howe St, Osborne Park (near to the Uber Greenlight Hub).
To ensure the vehicle inspection can be carried out at your chosen booking time please add the vehicle to your Uber account beforehand.
Please note that if the vehicle has not previously passed a vehicle inspection at an AIS you will need to bring your letter headed "Omnibus - Charter Vehicle licence - vehicle examination required" issued by the Department of Transport when you applied for your Omnibus Licence.
Vehicle inspection tips
Common issues to look out for
Ensure each tyre has a sufficient tread depth of at least 1.5mm. To save time, we recommend you check your tyres prior to getting an inspection.
Ensure all lights are working, including headlights, park lights, signal indicator lights and brake lights.
Check your car is not leaking oil or fuel.
