Driver accreditation with the TSC
How to provide supplemental information
After you have completed the The Taxi Services Commission’s (TSC) application form, you will be required to upload documents via their document upload portal.
To access the TSC document upload portal you’ll need the following:
- Your unique application reference number - you’ll find this in your email from the TSC along with a link to the portal
- Your driver’s licence number
- A clear photo or scan of each document you are required to upload
The documents you are required to upload will vary and can include each of the documents listed below. We recommend taking the time to read your emails from the TSC to determine exactly what you are required to upload.
Submitting clear documents
You can upload either a scan or photo of each document but make sure it is clear. If the TSC are not satisfied with the scan or photo you have provided they will ask you to provide it again which is likely to delay the processing of your application.
Every driver accreditation applicant must undertake a medical assessment with a health professional to ensure their fitness to drive. The can complete a medical assessment with Jobfit Health at their clinic at the Uber Greenlight Hub. Your local doctor is likely to also provide this service (although pricing may vary.)
For a limited time you can complete your medical free of charge at Jobfit’s clinic on site at the Uber Greenlight Hub. You can make a booking by clicking below.
You'll need to print the following two forms and take them to your appointment:
- health questionnaire (The doctor will retain this for their records)
- medical assessment form (Take this with you after your appointment, this is what you will need to upload to the TSC)
After uploading your medical assessment, the TSC may request that you provide further information. If this is the case, the TSC will contact you by email outlining what they require.

if you provide 100 Points of identification to the Taxi Services Commission (TSC) that are under two or more different names (e.g. birth certificate in maiden name and driver's license in married name) then you will be required to provide further identification documents.
