So you’re about to start work in your new PCO car, great stuff. There is however, one last hurdle to complete…. uploading your documentation to Uber!

Here at Otto Car, we’ll always help and do it with you on-site during the sign-up process, but if it’s 4am and an issue arises, our dedicated team will be fast asleep and you’ll need to know what to do! So in a couple  of simple steps, here’s how it works, from beginning to end:

  • To add a new vehicle onto your Uber platform, you will need to select the ‘add vehicle’ tab from your profile.


  • Once selected, enter the vehicle details.
