Canadian requirements for cars used by Uber drivers
There are three classes of Uber services that are offered in Calgary: UberX, UberXL and Select. Each category has a different set of vehicle requirements. Barlow Motors closely inspects each vehicle it sells, so when a driver needs to pass the Enhanced Livery Vehicle Inspection Standards (ELVIS) checkup, they won’t have to worry. Take a look below to learn more about the different Uber categories to better focus a trip to Barlow Motors.
Vehicles must be no more than 10 years old to drive for UberX in Calgary. As the most popular Uber category, UberX drivers have the most flexibility when it comes to the vehicles they can use to transport their customers.
More passengers mean higher fares for UberXL drivers. To qualify as an UberXL driver, the vehicle must have a high seating capacity and also be no more than 10 years old. According to Uber, most SUVs will qualify for UberXL services.
As the top tier of Uber services, there aren’t many vehicles that will qualify for Uber Select. Drivers looking to be named a Select driver need to have a vehicle that is eight years old or newer, which also qualifies as a mid-tier luxury sedan or SUV. Barlow Motors offers a wide range of vehicles that may allow a customer to meet these requirements.
