Vehicle requirements

London

Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber in London? Most four-door cars do, but requirements vary by vehicle option.

Minimum requirements

  • Vehicle must be 2008 (58 / 08) plates or newer
  • 4-door car with a minimum of 5 seats
  • Good condition with no cosmetic damage
  • No commercial branding

Vehicle policies and conditions

  • TfL Age & Condition Policy: Vehicles presented for first licensing in London must not be more than 5 years old from date of first registration and must have a Euro 6 petrol or diesel engine, or a Euro 4 petrol-hybrid engine. If you'd like to know more, you can read TfL's requirements here.
  • Imported vehicle policy: We accept imported versions of any vehicle on the London Vehicle List. All imported vehicles must possess all the vehicle documents listed in the below section (see ‘Vehicle Documents’ below).
  • Estate Policy: For uberX we accept Estate versions of every vehicle on our approved list (i.e. we take the Skoda Octavia which means we also take the Skoda Octavia Estate). However, we DO NOT accept ANY Estate vehicles on UberEXEC or UberLUX.
  • We accept manual and automatic transmission vehicles, however we recommend automatic transmission as this makes for a smoother and easier driving experience for the rider and partner-driver.
