Take out Private Hire Insurance With Acorn Insurance

As one of Uber’s trusted insurance partners in the UK, Acorn Insurance offers private hire cover designed with Uber partner drivers in mind.

We have a fully integrated insurance verification service with Uber for all Uber driver partners to support getting you on the road as quickly as possible. We also do this to support Uber in ensuring that driver partners maintain the required insurance in accordance with regulatory requirements.

You do not need to take any further steps to activate this service and it is integrated as standard when you purchase your policy with us.


  We are an Instadoc-approved insurance provider for Uber customers. Once you purchase your policy, we will send you your documents.

  You should upload your documents to your Uber account.

  Uber will then contact us to verify those documents.

 That is it – once you receive confirmation that Uber has accepted your documents, your insurance requirements to drive with Uber are sorted!

What if I Make a Change to my Policy?

We will also notify Uber if you make a change to your vehicle, address, or if you cancel your insurance policy with us.

It is important to note:

  • You must continue to upload your insurance documents to Uber in the normal way. Once Uber has approved your insurance, they will contact you.
  • Although we send updates to Uber when you make a change or cancel your policy this does not mean it will be approved. Uber will review the documents and let you know if there are any issues.
  • Please note – it is your responsibility to ensure all information is received by Uber.
  • For any queries regarding verification of your policy with Uber, please contact our support team on 01704 338 860.
