Do you want to become an Uber driver but are not sure whether your vehicle meets all of the Uber car requirements? UberX, Uber XL, and Uber PLUS allow you to use your personal vehicle without commercial licensing or insurance, but your car still must meet the basic criteria listed here. So here are the Uber car requirements.

Take a look at this post about the best cars to drive for Uber.

If you want to drive for Uber BLACK, Uber SUV, or Uber LUX, your car must meet stricter standards. Read about the Uber car requirements below for Uber Black.

Uber Car Requirements – 2017 

The Uber service types each have a different set of vehicle requirements. UberX, the basic most common Uber service accepts any 4-door car of a certain age. On the other hand, the professional Uber BLACK services accept only certain vehicles.

Every Uber driver, regardless of the Uber service, must meet these basic Uber car requirements:

  • You must be 21 years of age or older.
  • You must have 3 years driving experience.
  • You must have an in-state Drivers License (depending on your state).
  • You must have a clean driving record.
  • You must pass a background check.

Uber car Requirement for Uber black

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.

    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.

    Can i drive honda accord or toyota camry black with uber?

  • 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

    Is there any category that my 2001 XKR Jaguar can be a Uber vehicle

  • IDWU

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

  • IDWU

    It sounds like your 2015 black Suburban would qualify.

  • IDWU

    Car requirements depend heavily on your city or area. It is best to contact Uber directly to make sure your car qualifies.

  • Timmy Hooper

    2001 or newer

  • Timmy Hooper

    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!

  • Timmy Hooper

    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!

  • Milan

    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

  • Julia

    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?

  • Timmy Hooper

    hi milan,

    the civic still would be just uberx but atleast easy to clean with leather

  • Timmy Hooper

    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 ☺

  • chris

    would my bmw m5 qualify for uberlux? or uber black?

  • Ebony B

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

  • Timmy Hooper

    i have replied via email for your concern. thank you

  • Timmy Hooper

    hi chris,

    that would be uber black if leather.

    thanks

  • Mike

    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.

    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

    yes. If there is a 3rd row seat, the XL as well

    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

  • jleonard711

    Only UberXL, it needs to be black inside & out to qualify for Uber Black (hence the obvious name).

  • .45StayAlive

    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).

  • Freeway

    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.

  • Freeway

    I’m pretty sure the last bench has 3 seats.

  • Freeway

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

  • Freeway

    Yes. Any four door car with five seats and seatbelts.

  • Freeway

    UberX.

    What year? If newer than you can use it for UberSUV.

    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.

  • Al Gaines

    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

  • Al Gaines

    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

  • Al Gaines

    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.

  • Al Gaines

    No you’ll be on. Uber lowered the vehicle years to 2001 and newer now.

  • Al Gaines

    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.

  • Al Gaines

    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.

  • Al Gaines

    Yes and no. Uber does however partner with Enterprise Rent A Car and special finance manager.

  • Al Gaines

    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

  • Al Gaines

    No

  • Al Gaines

    Depending on your market

  • Al Gaines

    No… because it entails a lot work and you’ll need certificates too.

  • Al Gaines

    Yes.. i too have the same. Uber only advertise 6 seats anyway
