How to become delivery-partner (bicycle)

You're at least 18 years old and able to ride a bike, the most efficient vehicle to deliver meals. It does not require a licence or insurance to start delivering and making money.

Using your car or scooter for delivery

You must be at least 18 years old, held a motorbike/car licence. Use one of these vehicle to deliver more food order without requiring much energy. More orders delivered, faster.

Food Delivery Driver Requirements

Driver and Vehicle Document Requirements in Australia and NZ

Bicycles are the most efficient vehicle option to use as a food delivery courier. You don’t need a licence to ride it, there are no gas expenses, minimal maintenance costs, it does not require vehicle insurance and it’s not required to be registered to be used on the roads.

However, to be accepted as a delivery-partner you still have to hold a couple of docs requirements, most of which are about your personal details.

  • You’re more than 18 years old and able to ride a bike
  • Proof of ID
  • Secondary ID
Read more about How to become Uber Eats driver (bike) and the list of requirements.

Even though delivery by bicycle is more efficient, but it’s not for everyone. There are some people who are unable to ride a bike a whole day due to their physical condition and age. If that’s your problem, then you can choose to delivery with a scooter, motorbike or car.

Delivery by two-wheeler has several advantages, such as being able to break through congestion during rush hour, lower maintenance and fuel costs. However, delivery by car also has the advantage of being safer and more comfortable on the road and it can take more meals orders at the same time.

In addition to personal details, you are also required to have several documents related to your vehicle.

  • You’re at least 18 years old
  • Driver Licence
  • Proof of ID
  • Vehicle Insurance
  • Vehicle Registration

Each app may have more (or less) requirements, read more about the list of requirements in Australia and New Zealand below.
