To drive with Uber in Toronto, your vehicle must pass an annual inspection and receive a 'Safety Standards Certificate' (SSC).
- Your vehicle must pass an inspection every year.
- If your vehicle accumulates 40,000 km before your scheduled annual inspection, you'll need to visit a mechanic for a new SSC.
Complete the inspection at one of these locations below or at a mechanic near you.
Important: Check to make sure your mechanic is licenced by the Ministry of Transportation and can issue a Safety Standards Certificate. Please note that Uber does not cover the cost of the inspection, or any repairs or maintenance needed to pass an inspection. You must upload a photo of this document within 36 days of passing the inspection.
