Uploading your documents

To drive using the Driver app, you are required to upload certain documents to get your account set up. Refer to the information below when uploading each document.

Required documents

  • Driver's license
  • Vehicle insurance and registration
  • Background check
  • Profile photo

 

These documents are required across the US, but if you visit a local Greenlight Hub or review your city's local information, you can get potential additional requirements for driving on the Uber platform.

Tips for uploading your documents

Following these suggestions and rules when uploading your documents can help the process go smoother.

Make sure all required details are clearly visible

Ensure that your document contains all required details before uploading. The entire document should be clearly visible.

Upload your driver's license first

This will speed up the approval process when we need to cross-check your license with other documents.

Upload one image or PDF at a time

Getting a TNO license

Uber registers for the TNO license on behalf of all people who drive with Uber. If we're unable to register on your behalf, we'll contact you. You may conduct trips in Maryland while your application is pending.

We'll submit your information

No immediate action will be required on your part. The Maryland Public Service Commission will review your information before granting you a license.

You may conduct trips while your information is being reviewed.

The license will be issued electronically

Once issued, license information must be in your possession whenever you're operating your vehicle for hire.

Frequently asked questions
