Uber accepts both official and temporary registration documents. The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify.


All drivers must maintain their own insurance policy in accordance with state and local laws. In addition, Uber maintains automobile insurance on behalf of all drivers using the Uber platform while on trip.

Uber decals

Under local regulations for San Francisco, California, all drivers must display an Uber decal on their vehicle while online. Place them on your front passenger windshield and rear passenger windshield facing outward. When taking trips at SFO or OAK, these airports require you to display an airport placard beneath your front trade dress.

Once you are cleared to drive with Uber, we will mail you a decal. You should receive it within 7 business days. If you ever need a new decal, you can request a new one be mailed to you. You can also pick one up at your local Greenlight Hub.
