It's easy to get started

Hit the road

1. Sign up online

Tell us about yourself and your car, motorbike, scooter or bicycle. We’ll need a copy of a few personal documents.

2. Upload your documents

Visit your partner profile at partners.uber.com, where you can upload your required documents. You will also receive emails about next steps.

Once you've provided all the required documents and passed a background check, all you need to do is download the Uber Driver app. Requirements vary by city.

Here’s how your fare is calculated

1. Pick up the order: $5.80 per pickup

Tap to accept a request, then the app will display options for how to get to the restaurant. Take your phone into the restaurant to navigate, and to confirm the order number.

2. Drive to destination: $0.90 per km

Swipe to "Begin Trip" then the app will display guidance options for how to get to the dropoff destination.¹

3. Drop off the order: $2.70 per dropoff

Look for information about where to meet the customer curbside. You can always call the customer if you have trouble finding them.

All advertised rates are amounts before the Uber service fee is applied.

Busiest Times

Uber Eats gets busy during lunch and dinner time. We typically see the busy lunch period as 11am to 2pm and the busy dinner time as 5pm to 9pm.

Plan your week ahead

A little forward planning can go a long way in making your delivery-partner experience more organised and more profitable. Take into account what’s happening around your city and you can better plan your breaks around the expected quiet times.

Consider the following when planning your week:

Events

What’s happening that might cause an influx of potential orders or potential traffic closures (e.g. sporting events on TV, Lunar New Year Celebrations, etc.).

Public Holidays

Long weekends and short working weeks are a good excuse for people to take it easy and order in.

Down time

If you have been online for 12 hours over the course of a day without an uninterrupted 8 hour break, the Fatigue Management feature will take you offline for 8 hours so you can rest. Pre-planning your breaks helps you make most of the time you’re delivering.
