Do you want to become an Uber driver in Ottawa? There are a few requirements for both you and the vehicle that you’ll be driving.
Uber Driver Requirements Ottawa
The age minimum to drive for Uber is 21 years old, and you must also have three years of driving experience. You’ll need an in-state driver’s license and in-state car insurance in your name.
Uber runs both a background check and a driving record check on everyone who applies to be a driver. For Uber to run the background check, you’ll need to provide your Social Security number on your application. A company called Hirease performs background checks for Uber.
To pass the background and driving checks, you can’t have any DUIs, drug-related offenses, reckless driving charges, fatal accidents, or charges for driving without insurance or a valid license within the past seven years. You also can’t have a criminal history.
Uber Vehicle Requirements Ottawa
To drive for UberX, your vehicle will need to meet several requirements. It must be a 4-door sedan with room for at least four passengers, not counting the driver. It needs in-state license plates and an in-state registration, but the car doesn’t need to be registered to you. It can’t be a marked, taxi or salvage vehicle, and it must pass Uber’s vehicle inspection.
While Uber’s standard requirement across the nation for UberX vehicles is that they’re from the 2001 model year or newer, in Ottawa the requirement is that they’re from the 2005 model year or newer. In Orleans Parish, it’s 2008 or newer.
Applying for Uber Ottawa
The Uber application process doesn’t take long. All you need to do is go on the Uber website, create an account by entering your name, email address, phone number and city in the form, and then proceeding through the online application. Next, you can go to either an Uber inspection station or a third party for your vehicle inspection. If your vehicle passes the inspection, you just need to wait for your background check to clear and you can start driving.
