Brisbane Uber

There’s many requirements you need to meet to become a Brisbane Uber Driver, with the most important aspect being the safety of your vehicles. Besides Uber’s own standards, including current CTP insurance, a maximum age limit, seat and door requirement, your vehicle must meet a certain working and aesthetic condition. Free from cosmetic damage and commercial branding, your car must pass a CL Inspection and hold a Certificate of Inspection.

Valid for 12 months, the mechanic performing the CL Inspection will check the car meets all the safety standards required for its purpose of use. The mechanic will advise you of any issues that need to be rectified to pass the CL Inspection and obtain your Certificate of Inspection. When you obtain the COI the mechanic will submit a copy of the certificate to Uber on your behalf or you can upload directly via Uber’s website.

To prepare you for your inspection, the most common things to look for are the condition of you tyres, testing all lights are working including indicators, brake and reverse lights as well as ensuring the exterior body is in good condition.
