Vehicle Registration

You’ll need to provide a photo of your license plate (including current/non-expired tabs), or your vehicle’s title documents.

If you have purchased a new vehicle recently but have not received its title, Uber accepts bills of sale, temporary license plates, application for title/registration, or license plates (with current/non-expired tags).

You must upload proof of insurance, which lists your name (as a driver), in addition to the vehicle you will be driving. Your insurance won’t be approved if you, personally, are not listed as the vehicle’s driver. Make sure your insurance has not gone out of date.
