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.

If you have a license that is not from New York state, you'll need to request a certified abstract. This includes your driving history and will need to be provided when submitting your upgraded license to the TLC.
