Vehicle requirements

Indianapolis
Does your vehicle qualify to drive with Uber? Most four-door cars do, but requirements vary by vehicle option.

Minimum requirements

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.
