What Documents Do I Need to Drive for Uber in California?

Most importantly you’ll need your driver’s license. Check with your local Transport authority about any additional permits or licenses you may need to drive in your city.

You’ll need to supply Uber with proof of address in your city, state or province. Check with Uber which specific documents they require, but usually, a utility bill or bank statement showing your address will suffice.

You’ll also need to provide proof of insurance. Uber insurance covers third-party only, meaning you’re not covered if you’re at fault in the event of an accident.

What is Uber’s Sign-Up Process?

Signing up to drive with Uber is easy, and you’ll be joining the thousands of drivers across the United States who have already signed up. 

You’ll need to submit a photo – either passport style or a photo clearly showing your head and shoulders, with good lighting if you can!

Uber also require you to provide information for a background check, and they’ll check the eligibility and condition of your vehicle.

Why Should I Get Livery Insurance with INSHUR?

We mentioned above that in order to drive for Uber Black, you’ll need commercial auto insurance in addition to your personal coverage.

This is because Uber expects its Uber Black drivers to hold a higher level of coverage as a premium service. 

Usually, you would visit a broker and spend days waiting for your documentation to come through, meaning potential lost earnings while you wait.

With INSHUR, you’ll be able to purchase your livery coverage online. Our policies are 100% digital, and we have a dedicated support team ready to help you in Spanish or English.

We’ll be launching in California very soon to Uber Black drivers across the Golden State.
