These documents are:

  • your driver’s licence (needs to be a Victorian licence)
  • your passport or birth certificate (please bring an original hard copy)

If you already have a Driver’s Accreditation (taxi licence) bring it along as well as your vehicle registration and we will get you on the road immediately!

We don’t have a specified list of suitable cars though we do recommend having a medium-sized economical sedan in great condition to ensure a great rider experience!
