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.
