Vehicle Onboarding

UPDATE: Due to increased interest from new & existing Uber partners wanting to add vehicles to the Uber platform,  Uber Johannesburg and Pretoria will be implementing a vehicle on-boarding waiting list for uberX, Van and BLACK in order to effectively balance demand and supply. If you want to add one or more vehicles to your fleet in the next 6 months, please ensure you complete the below survey:



  • If your vehicle is not yet active, please add it to the register by responding to the survey.
  • If you have not purchased a vehicle(s), please also respond to this survey in order to reserve your place in the vehicle waiting list queue.
  • All vehicles coming onto the Uber platform over the next months will be on-boarded from the vehicle waiting list queue.
  • Please do not buy any vehicle prior to receiving confirmation from the Uber Team that your vehicle will be activated.

All Partners should enroll a driver prior to acquiring a vehicle and a booking can be made at www.bookwhen.com/uberjhb.
