Vehicle requirements


There are many ways to drive with Uber. Each service has its own requirements that your vehicle must meet. Does your vehicle qualify? Find out here.

Vehicle requirements

To drive with Uber in Montreal, your vehicle must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • 4-door vehicle
  • A solid roof
  • 9 years or newer (2010 vehicle model year or newer)
  • Maximum of 350,000 km

Vehicle Inspection

To drive with Uber in Montreal, your vehicle must pass an inspection. Get the details here.


The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify but must be registered in the Province of Quebec.


Quebec has approved an insurance policy from Intact Insurance designed specifically for ridesharing partners. All partners are also required to maintain a personal insurance policy. If you are not the owner of the car, you must provide a proof of insurance with your name on it. Learn more about vehicle insurance here.

Uber Sticker

The Uber sticker must be displayed when you are driving with Uber. Place it on the bottom right side of the rear windshield.

Not using the Uber sticker can result in heavy fines, come pick yours at the Uber Centre.
