In light of Uber’s recent launch in Queensland, taxi drivers have charged Uber as ‘unsafe’ for passengers

    I just signed up with Uber.

    Drivers need to lodge a F2978 Driver Authorisation Application and F3195_ES_Health Assessment with Department of Transport and Main Roads .

    A Police check and driving record check are then carried out.

    Given the number of foreign "students" driving Bill Parker's Yellow Cabs I'd hazard a guess to say their police record from their country of origin was not examined before they lined up at the Taxi Rank...

    In Victoria, passengers would be covered under the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) program. TAC is a no fault claim process. I believe other states have similar set ups.

    I have driven Uber - one of many reasons me to stop was this - if someone sues me for any accident :(

    and not to mention earning less than $8 per hour, after all, expenses

    Miss information is far worse than no information.
    Lets clarify CTP, green slip Third property damage cover policies concerning a motor vehicle. The vehicle if stationary is not covered by these policies.
    So when you stop the car and it is then stationary, any public person you have taken for a ride for payment whilst entering or leaving you vehicle falls or trips from your property you require public liability insurance for this.
    Example someone gets caught up on a seatbelt of your stationary vehicle and whilst holding their baby trips and falls onto the pavement and either sustains a serious injury your public liability insurance will cover this.
    Also the courts have set a precedent if you drop off a drunk to their home address you are responsible for their care until the reach and enter their front door.
    This is my understanding, let you decide on information.
