Top questions from riders
Download the Uber app from the App Store or Google Play, then create an account with your email address and mobile phone number. A payment method is also needed before you can request a ride.
All vehicles are required to meet safety and insurance requirements. Driver-partners in Australia must provide proof of current CTP (or equivalent) insurance, at least third party property damage insurance, pass an annual vehicle inspection and meet local regulatory requirements for ridesharing vehicles. Some cities also have additional safety and insurance requirements.
Every Uber trip in Australia is cashless - payment options include credit or debit card, PayPal, Uber Gift Card, and Google Pay. Once your trip ends, your securely-stored payment method is automatically charged and your receipt is sent to your inbox immediately.
Certain requirements and features vary by country, region, and city.
