More Trouble For Uber In Australia

Australia might not be the best place to be an Uber driver right now. I mean, if they are conducting sting operations to bust Uber drivers, the company might want to rethink things until they get approval to operate there legally.

An Uber driver in the Australian state of Victoria was convicted on Friday for operating a commercial vehicle without a license, in a decision the local transport minister said confirmed the illegality of ride-sharing services in the state. Brenner was the first to face court among 13 drivers accepting paying passengers via the UberX service, after they were caught by the hire car regulator in a sting operation last year. A similar ruling is expected for the other drivers.
