Looking to drive for Uber? Your first step would be checking if your vehicle meets Uber's minimum requirements. Uber has created guidelines for what types of cars are eligible within each Uber service and we have listed these guidelines and the accepted makes and models below. For more information on becoming an Uber driver and the steps you will need to complete visit this help article.


First, for all Uber services there is a standard set of mimimum vehicle requirements, listed below.


Minimum Requirements for all Uber Services


Next, Uber has lists of specific requirements for each service level. These requirements can vary greatly depending on the service. Uber's budget option, UberX has the least stringent requirements and their luxury services such as Uber Black or SUV have the toughest requirements. We have broken down each service levels requirments below.

UberX

UberX is the most commonly used service that Uber offers and it is also the cheapest. This rideshare service is deigned for everyday use and is the most popular option for riders.


UberXL

UberXL is the service designed for larger groups or “for those times when you need a bit more space”. For this service you will need to own either a SUV or Minivan that can accomodate up to 6 passengers. Uber XL rides will yield higher fares than UberX rides but keep in mind that if you sign up to drive for XL you may still get UberX rides as well.


UberSELECT

Mid-tier luxury sedans that will yield you higher fares. Fun fact, your car must have a leather or vinyl interior!


UberBLACK

Uber's original Luxury option. Vehicles are required to be a high-end luxury sedan or SUV, in black. This service comes with high fares and your driving etiquette is also expected to meet this level of quality.


UberSUV

Similar to Uber Black but for larger groups. As with Uber Black, UberSUV yields some of the highest fares you will see with any Uber service. Only black SUVs qualify.


UberLUX

Only pristine high-end vehicles qualify to drive with UberLUX. Likewise, only commercially-licensed drivers are eligible to drive for UberLUX. UberLUX vehicles may be sedans, crossover SUVs, or full-sized SUVs.


Uber for Deliveries

As a delivery driver you will not be driving passengers but instead will be working with Uber to deliver food and goods around your city.


Lastly, see the specific makes and models that Uber allows for each service below. If you do not see your car listed but believe your vehicle meets all of the above criteria contact Uber directly as they may make an exception.

    Great info RideGuru, quick question, what city are you showing the Tesla Model 3 available for UberSelect?


    I agree with you 100% that it should be, but somehow in Los Angeles County, they say Tesla Model 3 isn’t available for UberSelect, BUT an Audi A3 is? 🤨
