What is Uber
If you found this page, you probably already know what Uber is, so I will keep this short. Uber is a smarphone app that connect riders with drivers in the cities that Uber operates in. Riders request a ride, and an Uberx driver will come pick them up. Fee amounts are charged based on a variety of factors such as time, distance, and demand. If you want to know more about what Uber is, see this post. If you want to drive, keep reading.
Become an Uberx Driver Uber
Step 1. Check if Uber is in your city or town
Check our list of Uber cities to see if Uber is operating in your city. If they are, great. Continue to step 2. If not, bookmark the page and check back at a later time when Uber expands to that city.
Step 2. Submit an application
Visit this link to apply. If you apply directly on the Uber site without using a driver referral code, you will not receive a sign up bonus. This bonus can be up to $500, so sign up though here before going anywhere else.
Step 3. Upload Documents
Once you apply to become an Uberx driver, (which you should have done here), you will have to wait up to 10 days while your background check and information clears. While you wait, log into partners.uber.com and upload the required documents and link your bank account for direct deposits
Step 4. Drive!
Once your background check has cleared and you have uploaded the necessary documents, you can drive for Uber! Get on the road
Can I drive my own car?
“Absolutely. In many cities where Uber is available, drivers have the option of using their personal car to provide rides and earn income.”
Can I drive whenever I want?
“Uber gives you the power to manage your own schedule. When you’re available to offer free rides, simply get on the road and start accepting requests. When you have other things to do, go offline until you’re ready to drive again.”
Do I need a smartphone?
“Not at all, we’ve got you covered! When you’re ready to start driving, Uber will have a smartphone ready for you, pre-loaded with the Uber pap for drivers. You’ll be earning income in no time.”
