Can I use my digital licence?

We can't accept digital licences as we have no way of verifying them. A physical licence is required for the verification process during sign-up. Once approved as a member, drivers may use their digital licence where permitted by state laws.  

Can I borrow cars if I’m visiting from another country?

You don't need an International Driving Permit (international licence) to borrow cars on Uber Carshare, as long as you have a valid driver’s licence from your home country and an English translation.

If you plan to drive outside of Ontario, you'll need to check each state’s rules for international drivers. We'll be in touch if we need any more information to process your account verification.
