GENERAL FAQS

To sign up you’ll need a copy of your driver’s licence with your current address or change of address sticker, your passport/birth certificate or citizenship certificate, and your driving history issued by your state road and transport authority.

We do conduct appropriate credit and background checks to ensure we are acting responsibly, so your credit history may be considered in your application. We will actively help you build a positive credit history by reporting on-time payments to relevant credit reporters.
