What does it mean when I sign up to drive with Uber and the website tells me, "Your insurance doesn't pass the threshold requirements"?

I just started my application for Uber. But when I uploaded my insurance documents, it told me that I can't drive for Uber because my insurance doesn't pass the threshold requirements. What does this mean?

“When you drive for Uber, you have to meet certain stipulations on your car insurance. This means you have to have:
  • State-minimum liability
  • A policy that lists you as a driver
  • A policy VIN that matches your vehicle VIN
  • A current insurance policy with a clear future expiry date
If you didn’t meet all of these specifications, that’s why you received that message.”
