Does anyone know the document required for the F or T extension. I have just uploaded my new licence - the front side for the licence and the reverse side for the F extension (because it says quite clearly in black writing F extension). I have received a sms from the Uber office saying that is not good enough - they want the correct document.

Its to prevent fraud. You could photo the front of your license and the back of your mates license who happened to have an F extention. They have been scammed before by drivers doing this so now they request a separate letter from DOT declaring that you have your F extension.

I believe you need to submit the letter they sent you ( or email depending on your preferred method of contact ) saying that your application has been approved

I recall receiving a letter from DOT confirming the F extension and sending that to Uber. U have gone a bit further by getting the plasticed license but clearly that confuses the boffins.

To be fair, it wouldn't be hard to knock up a counterfeit letter haha. The letterhead image is available on google, and the rest is shown in the above image, also from google :p

Ok , I have found the answer.There is a page which details the only documents they accept.
You have to get a release of information letter from DOT. Which is a real pissoff because I was just at the joondalup office yesterday handing in the inspection certificate.

What are you saying? Are there really uber drivers without a proper licence?
There may be, I'm not sure. I'm just fairly proficient in the use of photoshop ( not that you'd need to be in this case ) and it'd be a matter of 5 mins to knock up a letter that looks like that. Of course it's not condoned, and everything should be done above board

What about the reference number which has been blocked out up the top right hand corner?
