What you need to drive with Uber

There are a few requirements you need to meet so we can set you up to drive with Uber.

Minimum requirements

You can drive with Uber even if you don't own a car. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Have access to a vehicle that meets Uber's vehicle requirements
  • Hold a valid full driver’s licence in your state or territory
  • Have held a full driver’s licence in any Australian state or territory for at least 12 months (exceptions apply in certain states and territories)
  • Provide all the necessary documents required in your state or territory
  • Be listed as an insured driver for the vehicle you plan to drive

Required documents

Before hitting the road, you will need to submit the following documents:

  • A valid, full driver’s licence for your state or territory
  • Your passport or birth certificate
  • Proof of vehicle insurance as required in the state or territory you plan to drive in
  • Any other documents required in the state or territory you plan to drive in
  • A driver profile photo
    • Must be a forward-facing, centered photo including the driver's full face and top of shoulders, with no sunglasses
    • Must be a photo only of the driver with no other subject in the frame, well-lit, and in focus. It cannot be a driver's license photo or other printed photograph

Background checks

After starting the signup process, you’ll be required to pass a background check. Processes for driver-partner background checks vary by city.

It’s easy to get started

1

Sign up online

Tell us about yourself and your vehicle, if you have one. If you don’t, we may be able to connect you with a vehicle solutions provider, who could help you get one.

2

Upload your documents

We’ll need you to upload a few documents, including your driver’s licence, so we can run a background check. Once we’ve reviewed everything, you can download the Uber partner app.

3

Get a vehicle inspection

If the vehicle you plan to drive with Uber meets your city’s requirements, the next step is to arrange a vehicle inspection to confirm it is roadworthy.

Requirements vary by city. For more info, check out our city guides.
