To ensure we’re doing our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we’re switching to an appointment-only model for all Greenlight Hubs. Going forward, drivers are required to schedule an appointment in advance if they want to visit a Greenlight Hub. Walk-ins are not permitted at this time.
To schedule an in-person appointment, visit our Help Center.
1. Sign up online
The first thing you need to do to become a driver is to sign up for an Uber account. It only takes a few minutes.
2. Get a 3-year driver abstract
Head to any Alberta registry and get a 3-year driver abstract. Once you receive your abstract, head over to the Calgary Greenlight Hub with your abstract to complete your background screening.

Why you'll love driving
1. Set your own schedule
You can drive with Uber anytime, day or night, 365 days a year. When you drive is always up to you, so it never gets in the way of the important things in your life.
2. Make more at every turn
Trip fares start with a base amount, then increase with time and distance. And when there are more people needing rides than normal, drivers make more.
3. Meet new people and learn about your city
You'll meet and have conversations with people from all walks of life. From long-time residents to first-time tourists, families, small business owners and more.
You'll also become an expert on Calgary and discover new places to show your friends and family.
We want every Uber trip to be hassle-free. So we’re here to help with account setup, fare adjustments, and more whenever you need it.
