As of April 1, 2019, we are not accepting new for-hire vehicle driver sign-ups in New York City, due in part to new TLC regulations.
For partners who go the extra mile
Perks of Uber VIP
Uber VIP riders can directly request Uber VIP driver-partners, so Uber VIP driver-partners have access to more trips.
Drive Uber Car Seat
Only Uber VIP driver partners are eligible to drive Uber Car Seat, our option where riders can request a car equipped with a state-of-the-art car seat for a $10 surcharge. Uber VIP driver-partners receive a car seat to use and free training.
Skip the queue at airports
When a rider requests Uber VIP at the airport, an Uber VIP driver-partner will be the first to receive the request, ahead of non-VIP driver-partners.
Invitations to exclusive events
Uber VIP driver-partners get invited to exclusive VIP appreciation events, where we often offer giveaways and may raffle off items such as tablets, tickets to events, and more.
How do you know if you're an Uber VIP?
You'll receive an email that you're eligible to be an Uber VIP driver-partner. Uber VIP eligibility is assessed daily.
This means that driver-partners who lose Uber VIP eligibility can become an Uber VIP driver partner again when they meet the requirements.
