Insurance

All drivers must maintain their own insurance policy in accordance with state and local laws. In addition, Uber maintains auto insurance on behalf of all US drivers.

Uber vehicle decals

Under local regulations for Los Angeles, California, all drivers must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place them on your front passenger windshield and rear passenger windshield facing outward. When taking trips at LAX, the airport requires you to display its placard beneath your front trade dress.

You can remove the decals when you decide to go offline and save them for the next time. Pro tip: keep the paper they come with to place them on when not in use.

Once you begin driving with Uber, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days. If you ever need a new decal after you begin driving with Uber, you can request a new one be mailed to you. You can also pick one up at your local Greenlight Hub.
