Become an Uber Driver in Adelaide
But before you do that, let us make sure you have everything you need as many people have paid for various tests and reports and spent several hours running around only to find out there was something that prevented them from driving, which if they knew at the start would have helped them to decide if they should apply.
Pre-Sign Up Check List
The following things will most likely prevent you from being able to sign up to drive for Uber or any other rideshare company. If you are not sure that about something, head into the Green Light Hub (Uber’s support office) and ask before you go any further.
Car Type & Age
Your Age & License
Getting Your Paperwork Ready
Assuming you have nothing to worry about from the above list, you need to start by getting a National Police History Check (NPHC), Working with Children Check (DCSI), Certificate of Fitness and a Vehicle Inspection. You can arrange these yourself however it is far easier to let Uber start the process for you as a part of their sign up process and just respond to the email they will send you. Once you have received a positive result from these checks, you can apply for your Driver Accreditation.
- DCSI check will cost between $59 – $107 depending on the concessions you may hold. More information
- Certificate of Fitness will cost around $70 if done at the Uber’s recommended location – Hindmarsh Medical Centre.
- Vehicle Inspection by either the RAA or Rightway, which will cost $75. Inspections can be booked from this Uber page, which also gives some information on what to pre-check yourself.
- Driver Accreditation License will cost $165. More information
- Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance for is rideshare is approximately a $100 increase on your quarterly vehicle registration.
This may sound like a lot up front but it is likely you will have made this back in the first two weekends if you only work Friday and Saturday nights!
