What is Uber Black Car (UberBLACK)?

UberBLACK is a professional chauffeur service. The requirements for Uber Black Car are more strict than for UberX. Only specific cars are accepted. In addition, all Uber Black Car services require the driver to carry commercial car insurance, a TCP, and an airport permit.

The upside for Uber Black drivers is that the fares are higher than UberX fares. In Los Angeles Uber Black fare is calculated at $3.55/mile and $0.45/min plus an $8 base fare. UberX is only $1/mile, $0.18/min and no base fare. This means that an Uber Black driver may make more money than an UberX driver.

These are the Uber Black Car Types. They are only available in select cities.

  • UberBLACK is the traditional Black Luxury Sedan Service.
  • UberSUV is the larger SUV version of that for 6 or more passengers.
  • UberLUX is the high-end version of these.

  1. Hi I got a car for Uber still didn’t Register myself with Uber I have a question .
    Do I need to get full coverage insurance ?
    I bought 2007Toyota Corolla type s 135000 is a milage can I work as driver for Uber please let me know .
    I have a clean driving record I don’t have any Ticket yet

    1. Hi,
      Uber only requires drivers to carry automobile insurance that meets the local state’s requirements.
      Based on what you said, you should qualify to drive with Uber. Best way to find out is to just apply.
      Hope that helps.

      1. You need to contact different insurance companies to see which ones will cover you. There are many drivers out there that unknowingly are not covered. Many insurance companies will cancel you as soon as they find out you drive for Uber

    2. Im a little suprised there are no mini vans on any list. The Chrysler town & country and 300 4 door sedan in the LUX and PLUS Uber line up.

      1. bottom line. Just bought a 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4 door truck. It is loaded. Can I use it as my uber vehicle. Let me know asap for I am very excited to make more money

        1. Sounds like your Tacoma qualifies. Make sure to double check with local Uber car requirements, as they may vary depending on your exact location. Good luck 🙂

      Only vehicles 2007 or newer will be accepted into UberPlus / UberSelect.

  17. Uber does not clarify if you need a commercial license only or does it have to be licensed under a specific business type ie. Limousine, etc ?

    1. Gaurav,

      Chrysler 300 Year 2006 or Newer – UberX only at this time until further notice by staff

  18. They should have a special requirement for older cars pre 2000. I have a rare 1989 Pontiac Bonneville SSE fully loaded with leather seats, super clean, less than 100k miles in pristine condition and cant be an uber driver. It is disappointing because it rides very smooth and many people enjoyed riding in the car, mostly friends and co-workers. All I am saying they should have a “special?” requirement for older cars even from the ’50s as long as they are luxurious and in perfect condition

      1. The Ideal for Uber is to provide Newer, Safer, With more safety features and technology than a Taxi that smells like Vomit or someone has past away in. Im sure your car is in great condition and smells great but doesnt have all the safety features as the new cars. Thank you for the Question

  19. I have registered for Uber partner and want to buy car. the challenge is that I do not know which car will qualify for Uber shuttle services. Please advise.

    1. Marisela,

      This Vehicle is not listed on approved Vehicles, Please email uber support for your answer. Thank you

    1. Todd,

      Uber Drivers are not allowed to pick up passengers but can drop off. Thanks for your Question.

    1. Sam,

      2015 Black Suburban – Approved as UberSUV with following restrictions:

      *Driver is required to have commercial registration and insurance.
      *Airport permit is required.(if you want to go to the Airport)

    1. A really cool car, but unfortunately at this time there doesn’t seem to be any Uber service category that accepts a sports coupe.

    1. I used my phone, to take picture of the Tag registration and insurance card and uploaded via my phone as well you’ll do the safety Inspection form as well.

    2. To drive for UberSUV or UberBlack your vehicle must meet these criteria:

      Full-size SUV
      Great condition
      Black exterior
      Black interior

      Since yours is white it would only quality for UberXL

  20. I am looking into purchasing a new vehicle… I am wanting to go Uber Plus… The Salesperson at Kia said his Cousin is driving Uber Plus in a 2016 Kia Optima (with leather interior)… Does anyone know if this is true? Will a 2017 Kia Optima (with Leather Interior) qualify for Uber Plus?

    1. 2014 or Newer of a Kia Optima with leather interior – Approved as UberPlus

      An entry-level four-door luxury sedan is required.
      The vehicle must have a leather interior.
      Must seat at four passengers, not including the driver.
      Only vehicles 2007 or newer will be accepted into UberPlus / UberSelect

  21. My business partner is trying to sign up with UberBlack using a Lincoln. Is that possible in some towns?

  22. I am purchasing a 2016 Toyota Highlander XLE. Leather, seats 8, it’s a crossover SUV. Before I sight on the dotted line….should I buy a black one with black leather, or is it even going to make a difference! I would like to drive uberSUV.

    1. 2014 or newer
      Sedan or full-size SUV.
      Black exterior and interior.
      Vehicle should be at least 2010 or newer. (Updated from 2012 for 2016)
      Must seat at least four passengers (Sedan) or six passengers (SUV).
      Driver is required to have commercial registration and insurance.
      Airport permit is required.

    1. I use a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab and I do pretty well. Yes I would make more if I drove a car but my riders LOVE the truck and it really isn’t that bad. I only drive part time and focus on the rush hour and bar hours to maximize my profits.

  23. am thinking of replacing my lincon mks with toyota avalon 2013, are toyota avalon accepted with commercial livery

          1. 2010 Dodge Caliber they look like they can hold a driver and 3 adults plus maybe a child ?

  24. Uber Classic. Please. Do it. People will want rides in a wide variety of classic 2 and 4 passenger vehicles.

  25. Im confused, why would someone who owns such an expensive car want a job as a driver? Surely if you can afford the Lux car then u have the money already. Please enlighten me?

    1. Hi Joey,

      My theory was the same, However some may already own a vehicle of that type/price tag or prefer to have a vehicle that luxurious and do uber part time for the retired or they just want to have something of that nature hoping to draw more clients/customers, However thats not the case unless their city doesnt have many Lux or UberXL vehicles, that generates more business for them, But in Huntsville, Alabama, it just launched on March 7th 2016 and we ONLY have UberX ONLY at this time, But when we get the options for the other options, Those drivers can/could earn more than the ones here now with a UberX only.

      Thanks for your Question!

    2. Simple-let’s say I have $300k in the bank but I just lost my job and don’t have any marketable skills and/or fed up with being woken up by the alarm clock and going to work where I sit in front of the computer 5 days a week 9am-6pm and have to play all kinds of office politics. I have a toyota worth ~$12k which I can sell and only add $8k and buy one of the cars required for high payout. I then sign up and work 3-4 hours a day to cover basic living expenses, and when I say “work” it’s not really hard work because I also hang out at the beach, visit girlfriends(haha), run some other errands, etc.
      This is my first time on the forum, would be curious to know what you Timmy and others think about what I wrote.

    3. I drive a Tesla Model S. Driving Uber is my tv time- a different form of entertainment for me. sounds weird I know, but also keeps me humble.

  26. Hi, I am looking at possibly driving full time over the summer and during next semester in Miami, and as I look at cars, I have a question. The requirements say, “4-door sedan”. Does this mean hatchbacks are not allowed? There are some nice 4-door hatchbacks…

    1. some hb are ,depends on the vehicle. example 2005 dodge caliber is accepted but a chevy sonic hb not accecpted.

  27. I have a white 2015, 4 door Jeep Sahara with black leather interior. If I drive for Uber, can I get something more then Uber X for a $50K vehicle??

  28. If anyone has any further Questions, Please feel free to ask, I will do my best to respond within 72 hours!

    Happy and Safe Ubering!

      1. the Sport would be only X because there is no 3rd row seat. The larger Outlander third row seat is classified by Mitsubishi as “emergency seats”

  29. Which ones does an 2009 Audi Q7 TDI S-line qualify for? Only uberXL and select? Is it possible to qualify for luxury or is the car too old? Would a new audiQ7 qualify for SUV?

  30. I would like to become a Uber Black, I have a 2016 Toyota Highlander with 3rd row seats, will conformably seat 6. I did not see toyota on the approved vechical list, but does meet the approved SUV Black list. Can you help me with this question. Thnalks

  31. Hope Everyone’s week is going well. Again I’ll check the forum for new Questions within 72 hours. or email thooper86@yahoo.com for a quicker response.

    Thank You All and be Safe!
    Happy Ubering!

  32. For UberBlack, Even if the car owns everything that Uber requres, but the car is not on the list? I’m asking for Honda Civic 2016

  33. is there statistics anywhere on what’s more in demand in Miami between UberXL and LUX SUV? I’m buying a car and want to know what’s better. Any recommendations?

    1. hi julia,

      there is not any statistics however it depends on the area you plan on driving. is it more upscale with richer people or would you rather be able to haul more than 4 passengers. personally id go all out so you can do both ☺

  34. Is it possible to register as a driver in more than one state? That way you can pick up in both states.

  35. IS A HYUNDIA SANTE FE LIMITED V-6 AWD PEARL WHITE WITH TAN LEATHER ACCEPTABLE IN GREENVILLE NC

  36. Where would a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited fall under? seats 5 with driver. Live near Los Angeles

  37. 2016 Audi S4, i don’t see it as an uberblack? Will it qualify for uber black? I just don’t see why would I should only be able to do uberx -_- and only get 5 bucks for 2 miles or something like that.

    1. Can I use a 2008 Nissan Titan crew truck Black Exterior Black Interior Leather would it qualify in Atlanta GA and if so which Uber Category?

      1. Have a white Audi A3 2.0t with 25% tinted windows and aftermarket black rims and can’t even qualify for Uber. In short, no convertibles that aren’t 4 doors and 5 passengers.

  38. I am looking at getting an Impreza. It has the hump in the middle of the floor in the back. Would that disqualify the car?

  39. hi my name is mak.i have international licence from 6 year.clear white record. can i drive uber?

  40. Uber is screwed up, I own a BLACK VOLVO with a parchment LEATHER interior this is a $45,000 car and it fits in the low end of the pay scale, these guys are jokers…no thanks Uber

  41. The info I’ve seen online has these words “Note: There are many cars not listed! This is just to give you a rough idea.

    BMW 5-Series & 7-Series
    Mercedes S/G/GL/GLA/GLC-Class+
    Volvo XC90
    Infiniti Q70
    Lexus LS460
    Audi A6/A7/A8
    Hyundai Genesis
    Jaguar XF/XJ
    Range Rover
    Porsche Cayenne & Macan
    Rolls-Royce Phantom & Ghost
    Cadillac Escalade
    Volvo S80”

    I bought a Durango RT with Black out option and RT means sleeper Hemi with no logo on the outside. It is a sweet ride, 7 seat vehicle, appears to be an fbi car (lol) plenty of room for passengers, low to ground like a sedan so easy to get into and out of, and has all the bells and whistles and all the electronic hookup chargers anyone could wish for including the Uconnect system with mass info at the fingertips. Uber Select drivers have opted for it under Uber XL because no select were in the area and they were highly impressed saying it is better than the Uber Select vehicles here in Cinci. Unfortunately, son has had no luck getting it added on the Uber app for select or black though. Son wants to use it for premium service, yet it isn’t on the list above, so he is driving x in a chevy cruise here in Cinci because why put miles on a premium vehicle that Uber won’t accept for premium service? The pay isn’t enough to cover the mileage on the vehicle if Uber won’t add to select and black. The ideal would be for someone from Uber to take a look at this car. It is a head turner.

    My other son drives the Durango for Lyft. He applied to Uber 3 months ago, but Checkr background service pulled an incorrect background check on him, so he didn’t approve it. He went through the steps with the courthouse to get his record corrected, then followed the steps to upload the background check. Now Checkr points to Uber saying they’ve done their part, and Uber points to Checkr saying they are waiting on the background check. Apparently it is a common problem judging by Checkr complaints online. Since neither Checkr nor Uber provides anyone to speak with directly, it went out into never never land. So that son drives for Lyft. He had a passenger a couple of weeks ago who searched Uber select, black, and XL, but none were in his area. So he switched to Lyft app and spotted my son’s XL and selected it. He told my son he saw the Durango rounding the corner and said “Please let this be my car. Please let this be my car.” lol yes it was his car. He was ecstatic when my son pulled up and yes indeed that was his ride. The blacked out RT stands out.

    I had colleagues telling me about Uber driving at least a year prior to either son applying. I was highly skeptical. Have worked for a consumer goods giant for 29 years now, and with that comes a lot of scrutiny of the latest fad. When one of my sons finally bit the bullet to apply, have to say I was impressed with how it went. The app is really impressive. If I could help work out the bugs like the Checkr issue, I would in my spare time free of charge. I love innovation <3

  42. Timmy, I’m in Houston, Texas and looking to buy a Hummer or BMW X5. Do either or both of those qualify?

  43. Am interested in becoming an Uber Driver and have been told a number of things regarding the vehicle that is acceptable. I have a 2005 Ford Freestar Minivan, which holds 6 passengers in excellent condition.

    Is this vehicle acceptable for the requirements of Uber?

  44. I have a 2014 Base Infiniti Q50 with all leather interior and all the necessary registration and licensing requirements. Should I be classified as Uber Select for a luxury vehicle?

  45. So in Philadelphia I can driver a 2001 or newer vehicle? Is there a limit to how many miles are on the car? What if it does have a salvaged or rebuilt title but was properly fixed and passd PA saftey inspections?

    1. As in how many miles on the car? They don’t check and it doesn’t matter. Only the year and pass safety inspection.

    1. I drive a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab with Uber and Lyft. While yes it uses more gas than a car it really isn’t that bad and my riders LOVE it.

  46. I have a Yukon Denali with captain chair in the middle seats it has six seats total including the drivers seat. does this qualify for uber XL?

  47. Hello i am considering to start a business with uber as a partner. Is it worth of buying lux car for their uber black service?

    1. Yes. Must have four full size doors and five seats and seat belts. Car must be clean and you must drive slow and gently and you’ll do fine.

  48. Is a BMW 5 Series Station Wagon acceptable for UberSelect in Chicago. I would think so, given that they accept the X3 and X5 both of which are not “Sedans” (they are SUVs). But before I buy one I want to be sure. I think a luxury station Wagon such as a BMW 535i Wagon would be a great choice, especially for doing Airport Runs when passengers have a lot of Luggage (each side of the rear seat folds down separately allow more luggage storage if needed).
    I’ve searched all over the Internet and can’t find my answer. On the UberSelect page for Phoenix page, it says any body style with four doors is acceptable. But on the Chicago page it is ambiguous, since it says “luxury sedans” for UberSelect on the main page of car requirements, but then lists the BMW X3 and X5 as acceptable on the specific page for UberSelect requirments (but does not say the station wagon versions of the 3 or 54 seris are okay).

  49. Hi, please I have seen that Nissan Rouge is listed in UberSelect website site, I have a 2016 black one with leather seats! I got confused because I read different requirements in every website so here you have not listed Rouge as Uberselect but they do in the website.. Can you help me with this ? Thanks

    1. You’ll only be able to sign up for UberSUV if you also have a livery insurance policy (with 1.5 million dollars coverage). However you’ll find that you can sign up for UberX & UberXL

  50. I have 2005 Highlander Toyota grey colour to partner in Uber services in Nigeria. Please what are requirements for SUV.thanks

  52. i have a nissan murano with 69,000 miles on it. can it be it be used to uber in maimi? is there a mile requirment for a vehicle?

  53. What is the Uber Select accepted vehicle list for 2017 in the Los
    Angeles area? I’m looking to buy a car now, but I will want to use it
    for Uber Select after the new year (2 months from now).
    Worth noting: if my life depended on getting in touch with Uber, I’d be a dead man.

    My Car is Santro xing (Black borad) & not yellow borad. Will I be eligible.

    1. Yes, Uber has a in app feature that allows you to input a destination and they’ll do their best to link you with a rider traveling your way. You can select this option truce per day.

    1. Only if you’re added to their insurance policy. At which point if you are, then you must provide this info to Uber. But YOU MUST BE ON THE POLICY.

    1. Uber used to be 2006 or newer. However since Lfyt has started to expand their operating rapidly, Uber needed to stay ahead of the competition. Lyft allows vehicles to be 2000 our newer. When lyft gained additional riders, Uber decided to do the same thing. So yes you’re ok.

  58. i want to become a UBER driver part time but i drive a 2013 ford f 150 4 door crew cab XLT, i it possible to use this vehicle.

    1. Yes.. but it varies from market to market. Example, your vehicle type can be used in Florida. But that vehicle type can’t be used in NJ NY. VISIT HELP.UBER.COM
      or partners.uber.com for vehicles in your market

  59. Hello, I am thinking about purchasing a top end 2015 Hyundai Genesis. It is silver with black interior. What levels of Uber do I qualify to drive in Seattle Wa? Thank you in advance for your input.

  60. I am an Uber driver in Florida I am running a BMW 7 02 I get great reviews if I were to use a srx caddy and did Uber l and Uber select what would be the difference in pay pre Mile

    1. It should go directly to uber green light station with the vehicle ir pictures and vin number they can tell you immediately

  61. Hello, I’m looking into buy a 2011 G37 Infiniti to drive in NYC will that be accepted as an UberSelect vehicle?

  62. I have a car that I do not use, can i rent it out to have someone Uber as a job? So basically rent out my car to Uber.

  63. I have a 2014 Ford Taurus sho tuxedo black with black leather interior but it’s not on the list? How do more cars get added, especially specialty cars?

    1. Unfortunately, it really doesn’t matter much with Uber unless you’re interested in making yet another hefty investment. I too have the same vehicle with the intentions of making more money due the my investment that i made in my vehicle. Wrong. But even close. If you do not have a Livery Insurance Policy (which carries 1.5 million of coverage) then you’ll only be able to drive that vehicle under UberX. I have a 2015 Ford Taurus SHO, black on black and could only drive UberX. 8 months and 78,000 miles later, i wised up. I learned how to make Uber work for me and not me working for them. If i can help you Further with any questions you may have, or anyone who wants a quick and direct answers, i can be reached @ ezrides.usa@gmail.com In case my email is blocked or obscured, it’s Easy Rides but spelled with the letter “E” and “Z” then “rides” dot “USA” at “@” “gmail” dot com. All one word & no spaces. This goes for anyone who may need help with questions. I do not work for Uber but I am one of their Top Partners in New Jersey abs I’ve been driving UberX & UberXL for 3 years now. Since they first launched here in NJ

  64. I drive with Uber, my husband is trying to complete his signup using our same car. They said we can use the same vehicle inspection if we download the form, but it wont load and I keep getting a nonsense auto reply from their email saying it has been resolved… but its not…any ideas on how I actually get a real person who I can explain this to?

      1. Uber Greenlight Hub. Close, lol. But it’s Greenlight, Greenlight Hubs. However in any event, @Teresa you can visit help.Uber.com for Greenlight locations in your area. If you’re in the NJ area then you’re in luck. Uber has recently opened 3 NEW Greenlight locations to better serve their employees… Oops… did i say that out loud? I meant, their drivers… I mean “Partners”, sorry. Again, visit the above web page (help.uber.com) for Greenlight locations as not all Greenlight Hubs are operational M-F or 9-5. Some Hubs have limited hours, some are open late night to accommodate those with Full Time jobs, full schedules, some are only open one day, ect.

  65. what are the current UBER XL rates? Thinking about changing my car to a seven seater to earn more money..does anyone know what the rate is for Uber XL?

      Cadillac: XTS
      Infiniti: Q70
      Jaguar: XF

  66. I have an Audi A5 convertible…Uber Select lists it as acceptable, but would the lack of 4 doors disqualify it? Thanks in advance.

  67. Does anybody know if you can drive a imported car with uber in Manchester UK ?
    Would be of nice help to know.

  68. Can you deliver for uber without giving passenger rides and if so is it still required to have a 4 door sedan just to deliver?

  69. hello…i see that they dont take salvage (which is ridiculous and the car is perfect and lyft took it.) do the however take “rebuilt” titles?

    1. Silly man vipers corvettes and BMW and Mercedes have two seaters too did you read out load before you Reyes answering your own question

  70. I have a 2016 Mazda CX-9 and 1 month old license on me AGE 26, local. Can I do UBER with this conditions Location : NJ. What Category do I fall in ?

  71. ok quick qusetion its says must have a 4 door but then says that the audi a5 is ok which is a 2 door is this a mistake or can i use that?

  72. Hello,

    I’ve a black 2011 four-door, five-passenger, MINI Countryman. Does this qualify for driving UberX (base uber)?

    Thank you

  73. Your wrong on the select class “must seat 5 or more passengers.”
    The uber requirement web page says 4. I do not see how one can seat 5 passengers in a sedan. One can sit in the passenger seat and then three in the back. That makes 4.

  74. Are there Vehicle year exceptions? I have a 1998 Ford Escort 4 door… Low mileage (60k) in pristine condition. I can take 4 passengers. It is in great mechanical shape, very reliable.

  75. I was told that when I got picked up at the airport, I was suppose to call for an “uberplus” because I had luggage, which would have cost me more than a cab ( 1- bag and 1- set of golf clubs ). How am I suppose to know which to call for? I was also by myself.
    P.s. I was also. Charged $12.59 for car. Just got another quote for same ride, $8-$11 same distance. What gives?

    1. Yes you will really get paid at the end of each week the money is deposited into your account, you can make anywhere from $20.00 – $48.00 per hour depending on the day, specials, time and surges going on. Also the type of car you drive can be a big difference an SUV vs. a small compact car could pay half the amount. Some states and areas pay more than others but try it you may see it is most profitable for such a flexible, be your own boss type of job.

      1. It’s not math mariculture possible to make 40 an hour if you follow the laws and drive safe after gas it’s more like 10-15 he honestly

  76. i hate working for people and have a limited schedule sometimes. i do have a 4runner that is a 7 passenger and iam thinking of driving for uber. can someone help me w the in’s / out’s. im in KY.

    1. It’s hard to rent and still make good money I live in FRESNO and would drive to Bay Area and drive at 250 a week plus about 20 dollars gas to get ther and 15 dollar car wash plus about $20in gas per $80- $100 then $20 to get Back its real hard to make money so if you make 300 in two days that’s $35 to start and $60-80 to make the 300 plus $20 to get back and I slept in my car and brought an ice chest for food hoping for no massive luggage to airport and after rental for week and I would make trip twice a week it was frustrating to read how lift would give major breaks to the drivers for reaching certain goal leavws of like free just under 100 so I waited and purchased a car to re work for it on Uber as for I reall I joyed working with Uber and have never works for lift although they have them sweet little stashes lol uber eats I made more money. I believe I prefer being a gübber for uber. now if married u can use the same rental different times it is fun I love

  77. Hi, I have 2012 ford focus hatchback and i was wondering if i can drive uber with it????
    Cause in requirements only says “sedan” and my car is hatchback!

    1. I don’t know about Uber’s definitions, but normally a hatchback is not considered a sedan. Cars are generally classified as “coupe”- w door with trunk, “sedan”-4-door with trunk, “hatchback” 2 or 4-door with no trunk, “station wagon”- 2, but usually4-door with no trunk, separately (and then there’s the new titles of “crossover” etc.)

  78. I apply to get the Commercial Driving Licence. FBI Background check pass, Diving licence records since 1998 clean record US Citizn everything pas now the Maryland Public transportation ask me ” to ask my Employer to signed?
    Is Uber going to signe? if yes where?
    I try to contact UBER about , BUT always response from people in India who do not know what the y are talking about please help
    My Car Black Suburban , Dec 2016, black inside ,Could someone tell me what to do??
    Thanks so much
    Isabelle

    1. The article said “commercial insurance” not “commercial drivers license” …that’s two different things.

  79. What are the requirements to drive in LI New York? The list of cars and requirements goes for all states including NY?

  80. For those of you who already own a Tesla, you’ll want a car for your commute every day. If you don’t know what kind of car you will need, the best advice I can tell is to start with something light-duty and not too heavy. A 3D printer will take many hours to print your spare parts, so I’d recommend at least a week off work to make sure all your materials can fit together safely before you start driving.

    Don’t forget to pack a few extra small extra things like books, toiletries and even food to keep you comfortable in case you have a storm, and if you’re lucky, someone can pick up your vehicle after you leave the airport. There’s nothing like having your very own Tesla Autopilot and going on the road.

    Now that you have those parts.reviews in place, your first ride is going to take place almost immediately — your Tesla’s batteries are going to need to be charged.

    For the most part, though, a good idea would be to just ride for a few days and see how quickly the car works before purchasing one. A full charge can take anywhere from two or three weeks — I’ve got three Tesla EVs in the trunk already so I could probably make it to my destination in about 7-8 hours.
