Vehicle inspections

Santa Barbara

Activate your vehicle at an Uber Greenlight Hub or find an inspection center to schedule an annual vehicle inspection. Inspection requirements vary by city—get the details about Santa Barbara below.

Activate your vehicle

In Santa Barbara, all drivers must pass a vehicle inspection before taking their first trip. Note that Uber does not cover the cost of an inspection.

Annual vehicle inspections

1. Download an inspection form

California law requires drivers 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 offers inspections at all Greenlight Spots and Hubs. Otherwise, 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.

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.
