Latest information about regulations in Victoria

Regulations overview

All Uber driver-partners will be required to meet requirements outlined by the Victorian government.

The Government announced their framework for regulating ridesharing, and we'll keep you updated here as we better understand what driver-partners need to do to be compliant.

The Government has mandated a Driver Accreditation for all driver-partners, which requires a medical assessment.


Driver Accreditation

Driver-partners need a Driver Accreditation issued by the Taxi Services Commission (TSC).

If you already have a Driver Accreditation (such as a taxi licence), you do not need to apply for a new Driver Accreditation and can upload your current Accreditation onto your profile.

When you have submitted the form you will receive instructions via email on what to do next to finish your application.

You'll have to complete a medical assessment (information below), and provide certified copies of your drivers licence and passport (and visa if not an Australian citizen).

The Accreditation should take 15-20 working days to be returned to you by the TSC.


Medical assessment

The Driver Accreditation application process requires a medical assessment by a GP.

Print the form below, fill out the self-declaration, and take with you to your appointment.
