To use the Driver app, go to a Greenlight Hub or find an inspection center to schedule an annual vehicle inspection. Inspection requirements vary by city—get the details about SF, Oakland, and the Bay Area below.

Activate your vehicle

In San Francisco, all drivers must pass a vehicle inspection at an Uber Greenlight location before taking their first trip. This takes less than 30 minutes. Note that Uber does not cover the cost of an inspection.

Annual vehicle inspections

1. Download an inspection form

California law requires people driving with Uber to inspect their vehicle every year or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Most inspection centers have forms available, but you may want to bring one just in case.

2. Find an inspection center

Uber has joined forces with YourMechanic for annual inspections completed at a Greenlight location. Otherwise, you can schedule an inspection with a facility licensed by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair. Note that Uber does not cover the cost of an inspection. All inspections stop 15 minutes prior to the close of the Greenlight location.

3. Upload the completed form

Once you pass, upload the form and receipt to your account. Uber does not cover repairs or maintenance to pass an inspection.
