VA TNC Process

Uber is currently working with the Virginia DMV to request TNC Vehicle Registrations, but in some cases, Uber will be unable to register on your behalf. There are three different ways you can register your vehicle for TNC use. 

Note: The Virginia DMV will NOT accept temporary registrations. Your vehicle must be titled in your state of residence and have been issued a permanent registration before completing the steps below. Once your new vehicle is validly titled and registered, you can apply for TNC. Until such time, you are unable to perform those services. A dealership has 30 days to complete the sale.

  • Non-Virginia titled vehicles can register online here by uploading a copy of the Transportation Network Company (TNC) Registration Application and a copy of the vehicle registration.
