    My reason for asking is because my brother has a car that hes willing to loan me but the car is registered in PA under his name of course and it has a lien. I am a residence of MD driving uber for over 2yrs. My brother is financing another car and i offered to make payments on the loaner cause my car engine failed and i was force to rent until i can get another car. Registration insurance and inspection are a concern.

      I am pretty sure you are in the clear. People used to submit a request to Uber or Lyft and move all over the place. The insurance is a big thing, but I think you got that covered. 

      The problem recently is that there are so many state laws that come into play. So Uber may not necessarily care but the state enforces it on them. So I think you need to check with Uber and see if it flies.

    My son lives in Santa Teresa NM just outside of El Paso TX. His car is registered in his name  and the insurance is in in name. He drove for UBER when he lived in NY. 

    I would like to know if he can drive for UBER in El Paso TX even though he lives in NM. Before he moved to NM he was told he could. Now he is being told he can't.

    Where are you from? I think the answer depends on which region.

    Yes, you can, but you still have to go through Uber who will approve the areas you are allowed to work  

    Sometimes it’s automatic. In many cases, you can work in states that are adjacent to your home state assuming they’re relatively close.  Uber often wraps up regions together, say like NJ and NY.  

    There are exceptions in certain regions where you need special permits or there are inspection requirements. NYC and Philadelphia come to mind. In most cases, you can still have out-of-state plates (say NJ plate working in NYC), but I would check.

      NYC is probably a bad example fro a NJ or PA registered driver, as there a driver has to have a commercial plate, but PA registered drivers can indeed make rides in PA, NJ, DE, and I had one in CT this Sunday (on Lyft though). Uber did not allow me to pick passengers up in MD (I am registered in Phila)

        “Where you are registered with Uber” VS Where your car is registered and have a plate from” are different, aren’t they?

        Or are they not? I don’t know. I thought you can have a plate in one state and still be assigned (by Uber) to another state. Isn’t that the crux of the question?

          Yes correct, I just wanted to point out that NY was an odd ball
