Get licensed

In Finland

With millions of riders all over the world, Uber is a great way to make money — but first you need a license to operate in Finland. It usually takes 3 weeks to complete the process and get your taxi drivers license and taxi operating license.


Step by step

Apply for the licenses

1. Visit our Greenlight Hub

Visit our Greenlight Hub for an info session. You'll get an overview of Uber and the licensing process in Finland.

2. Book a test and get prepared

You will need to pass a test to get taxi drivers license. We'll help you to prepare for the test with our Uber Ignition online learning material. No mandatory courses are required to prepare for the test.

3. Apply for the taxi drivers license

You'll need to fill an application form, get a health check for group 2 driving license and deliver both of those to Ajovarma's branch office. Once the application is done, you will receive taxi drivers license by mail.

4. Get a business ID

You will need to have a Finnish business ID before you hit the road. We'll help you to get this set up with our partners.

5. Apply for the taxi operating license

You'll need this to be able to drive as an independent operator. Application for this license is made only via Trafi's website.

6. Register your vehicle and get it insured

To be able to use your vehicle on Uber, you'll need to register it for professional use. If you'll need a new vehicle, we can help you with that. We will help you to get competitive insurance rates from our insurance partner as well.
