Does UberEats drivers require Passenger Transport licence code (PTLC)

Hey guys. I'm interested in becoming a driver for UberEats and just wanted to know if I'm expected to apply for a Passenger Transport licence code? It doesn't really make sense why I should but knowing Australia and their laws, I wouldn't be surprised.

We have a licence here in Toronto Canada for transporting clients only. I have been doing Uber Eats here and no PTC is needed. We are only carrying food.

You need a passenger transport licence code only if you transport passengers (not food).

You will, however, need a full Australian licence. This is Uber’s advice regarding Uber Eats in Sydney:

Car requirements

  • You’re at least 18 years old
  • You hold a full Australian licence
  • Your car is a 1990 model or newer
  • Your car is registered and CTP-insured in NSW
  • You have vehicle insurance (third-party property or comprehensive)
  • You can pass a background check
You'll also need to confirm that you have the right to work in Australia and that you have access to Medicare or relevant health insurance.

Nope. International licences are allowed now for eats.
