More information:

As of April 1, 2019, we are not accepting new for-hire vehicle driver sign-ups in New York City, due in part to new TLC regulations.

If you did sign up to drive with Uber before April 1, but did not submit a TLC license application before April 1, your account has been placed on a waiting list. Applications that have been denied by the TLC will not be considered.

Create an account to join the waitlist to drive with Uber in NYC, and consider other ways to earn with Uber, like delivering with Uber Eats or driving with Uber outside of the five boroughs.

Step 1

Complete defensive driving at one of the TLC’s approved defensive driving school, either in-person or online.

If you have taken a New York State DMV certified defensive driving course within the last three years and have proof of completion, you do not need to take the course again.

Step 2

You can submit your completed certificate to the TLC through their online TLC Upload Portal.

  • Your current TLC issued application number
  • The zip code of your mailing address
  • The last 5 digits of your Social Security Number (SSN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN)
