How to apply for a Passenger Endorsement

In order to complete the sign-up process, you’ll be required to obtain a Passenger (P) Endorsement from the NZTA. Uber can assist you in applying for a P Endorsement, or you can apply directly at a NZTA Agent, such as VTNZ, AA, or VINZ.

As part of your P Endorsement application there are additional documents you may need to obtain. Uber can help you obtain many of these documents – visit a local Greenlight Hub.

It’s easy to get started:

Signing up is easy and free. 

Upload a few personal documents, including your driver’s licence. 

Once your documents have been approved, you’re good to go!
