Find out what credentials you need

to be a rideshare driver

Legally meet the requirements in your state

TikRide has identified the legislative standards required by various states in Australia to be a rideshare driver. You must possess these credentials in order to be a legal rideshare driver. TikRide can assist you to document and verify these credentials, and keep them current and accessible via any device.

We recommend you have your driving credentials verified so you can demonstrate to your passengers and rideshare operators that your details are valid and correct.

We have grouped the credential requirements into TikRide Driver Pools.

Credentials explained:

  • ID Check
    Identity verification is the foundation of the TikForce platform (on which TikRide operates), so when you sign-up for TikRide, we verify your identity first, then your driving credentials.
  • National Police Check
    This report lists an individual’s criminal and court outcomes, and pending charges, if any. You can apply for National Police Check through TikRide (cost included in $99 per year)
  • Medical Fitness To Drive
    This is a medical assessment certificate. You will need to obtain this form from your State transportation authority, and then make an appointment with your regular health practitioner for a driving medical assessment.
  • Driver’s Licence
    As issued by your State licensing body
  • Driving History Report
    Often called a Traffic History Report or Check, this report provides a summary of any driving infringements or offences. It is obtained from your State transportation authority. You can apply for a Driving History Report through TikRide (cost included in $99 per year)
  • Motor Vehicle Registration
    This is the registration of your motor vehicle with your State transportation authority – all registered vehicles are issued with number plates.
  • RideShare Vehicle License
    Required by some States if you intend to operate a rideshare service. Apply through your State transportation authority.
  • Right To Work
    If you are not an Australian citizen and you want to work in Australia, you are required to apply for and be granted a valid Australian visa with work rights.
  • Driver’s Authorisation (QLD)
    Driver's authorisation is a qualification that allows you to drive a public passenger service in Queensland and it is obtained from the State transportation authority.
