To use the Driver app, go to a Greenlight Hub or find an inspection center to schedule an annual vehicle inspection. Inspection requirements vary by city—get the details about Bakersfield below.
Activate your vehicle
In Bakersfield, all drivers using Uber must pass a vehicle inspection before taking their first trip. Note that Uber does not cover the cost of an inspection.
Annual vehicle inspections
1. Download an inspection form
California law requires people driving with Uber to inspect their vehicle every year or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Most inspection centers have forms available, but you may want to bring one just in case.
2. Find an inspection center
Uber has joined forces with Big O Tires in Bakersfield to offer discounts on inspections. Otherwise, schedule an inspection with a facility licensed by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair. Note that Uber does not cover inspection costs when performed by a third-party mechanic.
