License plate sign


The North Carolina legislature passed a law that requires all rideshare drivers to display their license plate number from the front of their vehicle beginning October 1, 2019.

This requirement is meant to help riders match the license plate number before entering your vehicle to help create safer experiences for everyone. To help you fulfill this requirement, all new and existing drivers will receive a physical sign at their mailing address.

The sign with the corresponding license plate number should be displayed on every vehicle that you use to drive with Uber.


If you haven’t received your license plate sign, follow the instructions below:

  1. Print the temporary sign here
  2. Using a permanent marker, write your license plate number in large font
  3. Tape the temporary sign on the passenger side, bottom right corner of your front windshield alongside your Uber decal. Ensure the license number faces outward.

If you've recently added a new vehicle, or previously requested a license plate sign but it hasn't arrived, request a new one here.
