I am talking about the general driving inspection you have to get done when getting plates on a new car, for example. Do I need to take my car in as [art of the approval process and show proof that my vehicle is safe and in full working condition without any issues?
Yes, in most cases, you vehicle will need to be registered and up-to-date with repairs and inspections in order to work for Uber or Lyft. Even new cars, trucks, and SUVs will need to be approved.
Yes, you car's paper work needs to be completely up to date. They even advice getting things changed in advance to avoid them needing to deactivate your account because of some forms not being current.
