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.
- Driver's license
- Vehicle insurance and registration
- Background check

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.

Following these suggestions and rules when uploading your documents can help the process go smoother.
Make sure all required details are clearly visible
