Uber Australia announced that all new cars signed up after 1 October 2019 will need to have a 5-star ANCAP safety rating (Australasian New Car Assessment Program).
This is a great win for passengers who will have the benefit of riding in 5-star safety-rated car, but how will this affect your work as a driver?
Here’s what you need to know
- Drivers signing up to Uber from October 2019 will need to have a car that is less than 10 years old and has a 5-star ANCAP safety rating
- Uber Black, Uber Lux and Uber SUV cars must be less than 7 years old at the moment of signing up
- Drivers already signed up to Uber will have two years to switch to a 5-star-rated car – this way by October 2021 the entire Uber fleet will be 5-star ANCAP rated
