I was receiving SMS from Uber that vehcile inspection is going to expire. After 2 weeks of messaging from Uber, I went for inspection in North Melbourne. I already knew I will fail the car inspection as car tyres needed replacement and car tail light was not working. Anyway, the guy who inspected the car told me that my car is not road worthy and I have to change the tyres and replace the tail light.
I was thinking that I will not be able to login to Uber partner account as my car didn't pass inspection but guess what; for 2 weeks I was able to login into my driver account and I kept on driving even though my car was not road worthy. Nothing from Uber.
Finally just before end of Financial year, I replaced the tyre and tail light so I can claim these expenses in tax returns. But it got me thinking that Uber is so desperate for drivers that it's allowing the car on road that don't even pass road worthy test.
