Registration

Uber accepts both official and temporary registration documents. The VIN, license plate, and expiration date must be listed on the registration. The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify.

Uber vehicle decals

The Uber decal must be displayed in your windshield when picking up and dropping off at the airport. Place it on your front passenger windshield facing outward.

Once you become an Uber driver, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days. If you ever need a new decal after you become a driver, you can request a new one be mailed to you.

Need a temporary decal? Print one at home here.
