Hey friends, in this post we’re going to talk about Uber driver requirements and how to get signed up to drive for Uber.
The steps are simple. You can watch the video below which has the Uber driver requirements or follow this step-by-step blog post. Simply click www.RideshareDrivingTips.com/Uber and it’ll take you to a signup page with an Uber driver application like the one below:
If you sign up using my referral link above (or using my invite code: FLY9G8), you will get a guarantee from Uber depending on which city you’re in. For instance, if you’re in Atlanta at the time of this post, Uber will guarantee you up to $600 for completing the required amount of trips within the time frame specified.
Sometimes if you don’t use an Uber invite code, then I don’t think Uber will guarantee you anything. You want to get that guarantee because it’s not promised that the dollar amount of your rides will exceed the minimum amount of the guarantee. Uber will give you the difference. In this example above, let’s say you complete 100 rides but you only earn $500, then Uber will give pay you the difference of $100.
Here are the Uber driver requirements to drive with Uber according to their website:
Anybody can drive with Uber. Although there are a few minimum requirements:
- Meet the minimum age to drive in your city.
- Have at least one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (3 years if you’re under 23-years-old)
- Have a valid us driver’s license
- Use an eligible four-door vehicle
This is where it can kind of get tricky because each city can have different specifications. Each state can have different specifications on what they want for you to drive, so you want to make sure you go through the city-specific requirements.
Continuing further with more Uber driver requirements, the website says:
“Before hitting the road, share the following documentation.”
- A valid U.S. driver’s license. (All you need to do is take a picture of it and upload it.)
- Proof of residency in your city, state or providence.
- Proof of vehicle insurance if you plan to drive your own car.
- A driver profile photo.
- Must be a forward-facing centered photo including the driver’s full face and top of shoulders with no sunglasses.
- Must be a photo only of the driver with no other subject in the frame, well-lit and in focus; it cannot be a driver’s license photo or other printed photograph.
This particular photo is for when you are getting ready to pick a rider up. They requested you, and they can see the picture. It’s basically for safety reasons so the rider can identify you before they enter the vehicle. That’s why they don’t want any other person in the picture with you, and they want a forward-facing picture with no sunglasses. It’s not a time to be cool, guys. It’s time to make money!
After you do this, you’re going to go through a driver screening process. They’ll do a background check. After signing up, you can complete a screening online and review your driving record and criminal history. This is also about safety.
The website goes on to say, “Hit the road. It’s easy to get started.” I’m showing you how easy it is. “Tell us about yourself and your car, or get a car if you need one. Requirements may vary by region. So we’ll show you what’s needed.” Again, they’re going to show you what you need to do.
Next, you’ve got to download the app if you haven’t already done so. Get the app and go. Once you’re on the platform, simply login to the app and start earning money. The background checks usually don’t take that long. Back in the day when I first started, it would take two weeks. Now it takes a couple of days sometimes.
Uber Driver Car Requirements
In addition to the minimum Uber driver requirements above, each city has its own regulation for vehicles. Sign up online to get more information. Once you start going through the process, you’ll know if your car is eligible to drive in your city. They also have ways that you can rent a car if you need to.
