      • Noting your ABN 

  • Read and accept the Contractor Agreement.
  • Read the Onboarding Manual to prepare for the Onboarding Quiz.

Once everything has been completed, your profile will be reviewed and our Sherpa Support team will reach out to you to advise of the status of your account.

Once you've been approved, you can immediately begin accepting and delivering jobs! 

Please note: Our Onboarding efforts are concentrated in regions with a demand for Drivers. If onboarding is currently inactive in your area, you'll be displayed a banner advising the same and your application will not be prioritised. Rest assured, we will contact you if the demand for Drivers in your location arises.
