    Default List Of Allowed Cars For Uber - UberX & XL Vehicle Types In London

    There are certain vehicle requirements that need to be considered when becoming an Uber driver. Not all the car makes and models are accepted for or by Uber. I am planning to become an Uber driver and I am looking to purchase a car to drive with Uber. There are quite many cars that I like and considering, however, I want to be 100% certain that the car that I buy is in fact accepted by Uber. Would anyone have up to date a list of cars that Uber acsepts?

    Default Car Requirements for Uber Drivers in UK

    Ok, MichaelBop and for anybody else who is considering to become Uber drivers, there is a list of requirements to start riding related to the vehicle age, number of seats, style and size.

    However, before deciding to become a private hire driver, the car needs to be in accordance with the Transport for London (TFL), requirements. Important to not forget to have a valid MOT test if the vehicle is in its third anniversary of registration or if the last MOT was done more than 3 years ago.
    Uber applies its own policies and conditions, to be followed and I have made up to date list of all the cars that are accepted on Uber platform.

    Uber accepted vehicles types in London
    • The minimum requirements by Uber for any type of car are listed below:
    • Your car must be 2008 (58 / 08) plates or up
    • Your car must have 4 doors and a minimum of 5 seats
    • Your vehicle must be in good condition and should have no damage
    • No branding is allowed
    • Both manual and also automatic transmission cars are accepted by Uber


    The platform classifies the vehicles in groups with same characteristics and offers different types of service at different prices. The common car brands are Toyota, Honda, Fiat, Ford, Hyundai and so on.

    The options are:

    1. uberX –the most popular option for riders, includes most newer 4-door sedans. Able to seat 4 riders in addition to the driver, it is applied for most of the car models. For this group, Uber accepts Estate versions of every vehicle on the approved list.

    I had no idea there was only specific car makes and years that are acceptable. I guess this is because they want people to be safe.

    A friend of mine was asking about this. I will pass on the information to her!
