Insurers treat Uber vehicles exactly the same as private hire taxis, which mean you will require Private Hire Vehicle Insurance.
Private Hire Vehicle Insurance is essentially a specific form of Hire and Reward cover. Hire and Reward is a class of insurance which allows drivers to legally carry other people’s goods in return for payment. Uber, taxi and bus drivers require a special form of Hire and Reward Insurance which allows them to legally transport members of the public in return for a fee.
All the cover you require as an Uber driver is incorporated within a Public Hire Vehicle Insurance policy and is the industry standard recognised by all employers. You will not be able to work as an Uber driver without Private Hire Vehicle Insurance.
