Create an account
The first step is to create an Uber account. It only takes a minute to sign up and you can do it online. We’ll email you more information once you’re set up.
Pass a background screening
Visit your nearest Greenlight Hub to complete a background screening. The screening checks your driving record and criminal history. Be sure to bring your Ontario driver’s licence and 1 other piece of ID.

To be eligible to drive with Uber, your vehicle must pass a vehicle inspection by a licensed mechanic. Upon passing you’ll receive a Safety Standards Certificate (SSC), and will need to upload it to your Uber account.
