Requirements on the road

To help you stay safe and compliant on the road, this page talks about being aware of local regulatory requirements. Please take the time to read and understand your obligations under these regulations.

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.

Street hail and no cash payment policies

Under Arkansas law, solicitation or acceptance of cash payments from passengers is prohibited. Payments for transportation services provided by driver-partners may only be made electronically, through the Uber app. The solicitation or acceptance of cash payments from passengers may lead to legal penalties and suspension of your ability to accept trip requests from the Uber platform.

In addition, under Arkansas law, a driver-partner may not solicit or accept a passenger who hails the driver from the street; "street hails" are prohibited.

Remember, it's 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. If you have questions about the law, you can always consult your local department of transportation and/or an appropriate legal or tax professional.
