We strive to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone using our platform. For this reason, all vehicles registered with DiDi must be:


– In excellent working condition (with functioning windows and air conditioning)


– Free from cosmetic damage and commercial branding


– A 4-door car / van


– No more than 8 seats (including the driver’s seat)


– Able to pass annual vehicle inspection


– Registered in the state where the vehicle is driven


– Registered as a Commercial Passenger Vehicle (CPV). Please note: the driver does not need to upload this document.


– Covered by Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance. Please note: the driver does not need to upload this document.


5 - Registering for an ABN or GST

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) expects all rideshare driver-partners to have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and register for GST. Please note: having an ABN doesn’t mean you’re automatically registered for GST. Additionally, we’re unable to issue GST compliant tax invoices on behalf of driver-partners who don’t upload an ABN.


To obtain an ABN and register for GST, you can complete the process online through the Australian Business Register (ABR). You can also register your ABN for GST through their website (please ensure you have your Tax File Number (TFN) handy). If you accidentally miss this step, you can always register your ABN for GST by following the online prompts or contacting the ABR directly.


When completing the ABN registration process, your tax agent may recommend using ‘ride-sourcing’ as your business description. You can also use the following categories:


– 46239 Road Passenger Transport


– 46231 Taxi Services

To apply for an ABN and/or GST please use the following links:
