Uber Driver Requirements In London


(Brandon Bhangoo) #1

Applying to be an Uber driver in London is not a complicated process, and all you need to do is make a checklist of the documents you will need to bring to your application session. You will need to check your eligibility before you apply. The process is quite simple.

Here are the basics that are required:

  1. You must be at least 21 years of age

  2. You must have a valid UK driver’s license

  3. You will need a private hire license

  4. You need an eligible vehicle from the Uber list of acceptable vehicles

  5. You must not have any of the point endorsement from the Uber list of UK traffic violations

EU Driving License Holder

If you only have an EU driving license, you will need to convert it into a UK one first.

Private Hire License

If you don’t have a private hire license, you will need to apply for one from your local council. If you need help, Uber provides it in their Uber (London) Ignition site, linked here. https://www.uber.com/drive/visit-us/london/ignition/

If you decided to get help from the Uber Ignition site, you would need to schedule a meeting and bring the following documents.

  • Your valid UK/ EU Passport

  • Your UK/EU Driving License with at least 3 years of driving experience

  • Your National Insurance Number

  • Your recent bank statement (from the last 3 months)

The other documents you will need to include in your application process are:

  • The V5 Logbook

  • Your MOT certification

  • A valid hire and reward insurance policy

If you are using a rental car, you will need to bring these documents as well:

  • Insurance driver schedule

  • Insurance vehicle schedule

  • Lease agreement

  • Permission/authorization Letter

You can now apply online (Link here https://www.uber.com/a/join-new/gb ) and set up a meeting at the Uber London office. Bring all your documents and prepare to go through an induction session. The process only takes a few hours, and you can start driving for Uber the moment you pass the induction session.
