About the app
Designed just for partner-drivers
When you want to make money, just open the app and you’ll start to receive trip confirmations. You’ll get information about your rider and directions to their location and destination. When the trip is over, you’ll receive other nearby confirmations. And if you're ready to get off the road, you can sign off at any time.
You’re in the driver’s seat. So reward yourself with discounts on vehicle maintenance, cell phone bills, and more. Reduce your daily expenses and take home more money by driving more.
Know you’re ready to hit the road. Whether you’re driving your own car or a commercially-licenced vehicle, you must meet the minimum requirements and complete a safety screening online.
When you drive with the Uber app, you get 24/7 support. And all riders are verified with their personal information and phone number, so you’ll know who you’re picking up and so will we.
In their words
"I’ve worked for other operators. The reason I moved over to Uber is because I’m totally in charge of what I do. The whole beauty of it is that I can do what I like, when I like."
"After I joined Uber, I can spend more time with my daughter and if there’s any more single fathers out there like me, Uber is the right place to join."
