Signing up with Uber in New South Wales

1

Upload your documents

The first step is to create an Uber account, it only takes a minute and you can do it online. We’ll need you to upload some documents to get started, including your driver’s licence, proof of identification, vehicle insurance, and a valid profile photo. You can do this online or, if you’d prefer in-person support, you can visit us at a Greenlight Hub.

Note: If the personal documents provided in step one do not demonstrate your right to work in Australia, a VEVO check will be run on your behalf at this stage. Learn more.

2

Get authorised for ridesharing

To become authorised to drive using the Uber app in NSW, you'll need to upload a copy of your NSW driving record to your Uber profile, lodge a background check, and apply for a Passenger Transport licence code to be added to your driver’s licence.

Note: Uber will front the cost of your background check. The $39 fee will be deducted from your payment statement once you start driving using the Uber driver app.

Get a vehicle inspection

Your car will need to have an annual eCheck (pink slip) registration - even if it is less than 5 years old. To find out more about completing a vehicle inspection, tap the button below.
