You will need to have the following ready:

Complete the theory test

You will also need to complete the online Hire and Reward Knowledge test.

To check if you are ready you can do a free practice theory test online.

You will need to pay a $20 fee for sitting the test. If you don't pass, you will need to pay $20 each time you resit the test. You will be told how to pay the fee once your application is approved.

How to apply

Fill in the online ridesharing driver application.

If you plan to use your own rideshare vehicle you must also complete the Commercial Vehicle Licence online application.
