The basics

How to drive with Uber in Sweden
Uber is a great way to be your own boss and make money. Most people with a taxi driver's license are eligible to drive with Uber. Here’s what you need to know if you’re driving in Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmö.
Hit the road

Get started

1. Sign up online

Got an email address and a smartphone? Great, now tell us a bit more about yourself and we’ll get you started.

2. Get a license

If you already have a Swedish taxi driver's license, you can proceed to the next step. If not, we’ll help you through the application process.

3. Upload your documents

Time for some paperwork. There are a few documents we need to see:

  • Driver's license (you need to be at least 21 years old, and have held a driver's license type B for minimum two years or have a driver's license type D).
  • Swedish taxi driver's license (Taxiförarlegitimation)
  • Profile photo

If you have your own taxi business and taxi vehicles (åkeri), we also need to see copies of the following documents:

  • Taxi operating license ("Taxitrafiktillstånd")
  • Certificate of incorporation ("Registreringsbevis" from Bolagsverket, if AB, KB eller HB, or "Registerutdrag" from Skatteverket, if "enskild firma".)
  • Bank statement ("Kontodetaljer")
  • Photos of your vehicle(s)
  • Photo IDs for board members and company owners

4. Get a vehicle or find a Fleet Partner (Åkare)

Are you a Fleet Partner (åkare) and have a vehicle that is registered for taxi use? Then you just need to make sure it meets our Vehicle Requirements in Sweden.

Do you need a vehicle or find a Fleet Partner (åkare)? Check out our Vehicle Solutions below. Remember that you’ll make more money if you keep your costs low.

5. Activate your account

If you’ve completed all the above steps, congratulations! You’re ready to activate your account and start making money.

Register for VAT

It usually takes 3 to 5 weeks to complete the VAT registration process. This page (https://www.uber.com/se/en/drive/tax-information/) walks you through the basics.

To get specific advice about your personal circumstances, you should consult a tax advisor.
