Do I need to get a background check?
All driver partners in NSW need to undergo a police background check before driving using the Uber app. Once you upload your required documents, we'll run a background check on your behalf. If everything checks out, we'll continue your sign up process.
I can't drive with uberX, what are my options?
If you don't meet our personal or vehicle requirements, you might still be eligible to become a delivery partner with UberEATS.

Where can I get an Uber Sticker?
NSW Government requires a removable sticker to be displayed inside the rear driver-side windscreen when you are 'online' driving using the Uber app.
You can get an Uber sticker at any one of our Greenlight Hub locations.
If your city does not have a Greenlight Hub, you may have an Uber sticker mailed to you by completing this online request form.
How much does it cost to sign up?
In most cases, the total cost to sign up is just over $100.

In some cases additional information may be required that will potentially incur extra cost (e.g. Out of state driving records, medical check, etc).
How long is the sign up process?
Typically the sign up process takes 3-5 business days.
In some cases, extra time may be required to review documents or follow up with additional information. These cases usually involve medical checks, out of state records or added time to process background checks.
