Requirements on the road

To help you stay safe and compliant on the road, this page provides high-level information about local regulatory requirements that may apply to drivers. Please take the time to read and understand your obligations.

Driver requirements

Display sticker/sign

Some regulations require you to display a sign or sticker that helps riders identify that you are a rideshare driver. To help with this, we provide a removable Uber sticker to be displayed on your vehicle whenever you’re online (where required). If the sticker is not properly displayed, or if it’s not visible while you’re driving with the Driver app (day or night), you could be subject to penalties by local authorities.

Driving-hour limits

State and local regulations may enforce limits on the number of hours drivers can spend online on rideshare platforms. To help you keep track of your time online, the Driver app will alert you when you’re approaching the applicable limit, and then again when you’ve been online for the maximum amount of time. After a substantial period of time offline, driving time resets and you can go online again to receive trip requests.

Community Guidelines

Our Community Guidelines were developed to help make every experience feel safe, respectful, and positive. Everyone who signs up for an Uber account across all of our apps, including drivers, riders, delivery people, Uber Eats users, and restaurants, is expected to follow the guidelines.

Notifying us of any changes

You are required to notify us of any change in your driver’s license status, motor vehicle registration, or motor vehicle insurance as well as any arrest or charge for a crime or driving offense, including any arrest or charge that would require you to register on the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry or on the US Department of Justice's National Sex Offender Public Website.

Maryland regulations require that any driver who is arrested or convicted of a crime notify Uber within 3 business days of the arrest or conviction. You can notify Uber here.

Remember, it is always your responsibility to understand and comply with the law when you’re out on the road. Nothing on Uber’s website is legal or tax advice and, if you have questions about the law, you can always consult your local department of transportation and/or an appropriate legal professional.
