Hi there,

Thanks for applying to Taxify. You would have received this link since you have not completely submitted your application and may be wondering why your application hasn't been processed. 

Below is a walk through of the application:

Step 1

After submitting your email, phone number and selected your city on the sign up page at https://partners.taxify.eu/driver-signup, you will have to click next and land on the following page. 

Fill in this page with your First Name, Last Name and select your car details. If your car is not listed, please notify us through sydney@taxify.eu. In the meantime, select the correct brand and any model and we will change your vehicle details for you later. 

NOTE: The ticked box after referral box confirms that you have a vehicle less than 10 years old and isn't a taxi, government or rebranded vehicle. 

Step 2

Click next on from the page above and you will land on the following page.

Fill in this page with your Date of Birth in the format shown. You will also need to provide your Driver Licence Number which can be found on your driver licence

NOTE: All ride share drivers in NSW must hold a full, unrestricted licence for over 12 months. 

If you have come from another state and held a full licence there for over a year, please send your driving record plus images of the front and back of your licence from your previous state to sydney@taxify.eu. We require this as proof of you holding a full licence, otherwise you will show as ineligible in the Point to Point Portal as shown below. We cannot accept drivers until they are green for both Licence and P2P Eligibility. 

Step 3

Click continue when you have filled your details to move onto the next page which is shown below:

We only require 6 uploads upfront (5 different types of documents) to submit your application. A summary of each document is below or you can visit this link for more  information: goo.gl/AUEHK7 

  • Australian Driver Licence (Front) - Must clearly show all details such as name, licence number, DOB and expiry date
  • Australian Driver Licence (Back) - Must clearly show updated address details and Passenger Transport condition details (if you have one)
  • Passport: Must be valid and clearly shows all details. Australian Birth Certificates, Citizenship certificates are also accepted
  • Vehicle Insurance Document: Must be Comprehensive or Third Party, NOT CTP. If possible, please also attach the full document. We need to observe details such as expiry date, insured driver details and vehicle number plate. 
  • Profile Photo: Easiest document. Just take a selfie (with no sunglasses)
  • Driving Record: As shown in the government portal image above in Step 2, the portal does not currently check eligibility of candidates against criminal and traffic offences. The Point to Point Regulation came into effect on the 1st of November 2017 and identifies a list of disqualifying offences that may or may not have been considered disqualifying for the driver authority, taxi licence or hire car scheme previously. 

      Common disqualifying offences include the following that have been committed in the last 10 years (duration quoted by Point to Point):

  • Driving with middle or high range PCA
  • Driving while licence suspended, cancelled or disqualified
  • Speeding in excess of 45km/h
  • Driving causing grievous bodily harm or death

These offences and more are all listed in the Point to Point Regulation legislation here: https://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/#/view/regulation/2017/424

Hence, you will need to provide a full driving record for us to check for any disqualifying offences. We only accept records less than 12 months old. If yours is older or you don't have one, you can get one here: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/request-driving-record

Purchase the online one and upload the FULL PDF.

Step 4

After uploading all the correct documents, click continue for the page below

Fill in all your banking information

For the ACN field, if you are not a business, simply fill it in with "no" or "-"

Note: All ride share drivers must be registered for ABN and GST by law. More information can be found here: https://www.ato.gov.au/general/ride-sourcing-and-tax/

Click FINISH and you have submitted your application!

POST SUBMISSION

Criminal Background Check

We also require a criminal background check from all drivers. Supply one which is less than 12 months old to sydney@taxify.eu or get one through our provider Checked.
A unique application link will be sent to you once you've submitted your application. We pay upfront for the background check and recoup the cost when you start driving. The reports will be directly sent to us.

Pink Slip (e-safety inspection)

If your vehicle is less than 5 years old (2013 - 2017) or doesn't have a blue slip, you will need to get an inspection completed under the new Point to Point Regulation. If you have completed one in the past 12 months, email a copy to sydney@taxify.eu

Otherwise, get one done at your local mechanic or through our provider Redbook Inspect. A unique link to book in your inspection will be sent to you once you've submitted your application. We pay upfront for the inspection and recoup the cost when you start driving. Inspection reports will be directly sent to us.

Below is proof of statement from the government

That's it! Much simpler than you think.

You'll be sent a direct link to your Taxify application through SMS so make sure to check them! 

After you've submitted your application, we will also send you unique links to get your criminal background check and vehicle inspections done.

Happy Driving!
