Firstly, What is Livery Insurance?
Livery insurance is coverage taken out by drivers who use their vehicles on a for-hire basis. These could be Uber and rideshare drivers, limousine drivers, chauffeurs etc.
To carry paying passengers for Uber Black, you’ll need a livery policy on top of your regular driver’s coverage. This is to protect you, your passenger, your vehicle and other vehicles from potential accidents while you’re online and accepting rides.
Okay, So What is A Livery Vehicle?
A “Livery” vehicle is any vehicle used for the transport of paying customers. This could be a taxi cab or chauffeured vehicle.
The “livery” can be a logo, decal or decoration added to a vehicle to give it distinction. This could be Uber’s logo, company branding or identifiable colors such as the yellow taxi cabs of NYC.
Uber will send you decals to display if you’re using your personal vehicle to drive for Uber.
However, there are additional vehicle requirements to drive for Uber Black, so make sure you read up on these first.
What Are the Uber Black Vehicle Requirements in Brief?

Why Do I Need Livery Insurance?
If you’re involved in an accident where you’re at fault, you’re not covered under Uber’s third-party-only insurance. Therefore you could be paying an expensive bill if there are damages, injuries to you or to a potential third party.
Plus, Uber Black won’t accept you without the correct commercial auto insurance.
It’s important you get the right coverage to protect you, your business and those around you.
