1. Sign up online
The first thing you need to do to become a driver is to sign up for an Uber account. It only takes a few minutes.
2. Get a 3-year driver abstract
Head to any Alberta registry and get a 3-year driver abstract. Once you receive your abstract, head over to the Calgary Greenlight Hub with your abstract to complete your background screening.
3. Get your Class 4 Driver's Licence
To drive with Uber in Calgary, you must have a valid Class 1, 2, or 4 licence. You can find more about the process of getting your licence here.
Already have a Class 1, 2, or 4 licence? You can skip this step.
4. Complete your background screening
Once you've obtained your Class 1, 2, or 4 licence, you can begin your Police Information Check. When you're creating your account, remember to share your results with Uber Canada.
There are two ways to complete your screening:
- At your local Calgary Police/RCMP Station
5. Meet the vehicle requirements
Make sure your vehicle is road-ready by getting your Class 1-55 vehicle registration and completing an E.L.V.I.S inspection.
a. Get your Class 1-55 Vehicle Registration
