How to drive with Uber in Kenya

Uber is a great way to be your own boss and make money. Most people are eligible to drive with Uber, even if you don't have a car. Here’s what you need to know if you’re driving in Nairobi or Mombasa.

Hit the road

Get started

1. Sign up online

Got an email address and a smartphone? Great, now tell us a bit more about yourself and we'll get you started.

2. Upload your documents

Time for some paperwork. There are some of the documents we need to see:

  • National identity card (must be over 24 years old)
  • PSV driving license
  • Complete a safety screening (Nairobi and Mombasa)
  • Complete a Certification session
  • Provide a driver profile photo
    • Must be a forward-facing, centered photo including the driver’s full face and top of shoulders, with no sunglasses
    • Must be a photo only of the driver with no other subject in the frame, well-lit, and in focus. It cannot be a driver’s license photo or other printed photograph

3. Get a vehicle

Make sure that your vehicle is in excellent working and physical condition, so that it meets our standards in Kenya.

  • Remember, your vehicle will be able to receive uberX and uberCHAPCHAP trips in Nairobi.

Note: in Mombasa, at this time, we will only be onboarding new drivers for uberPOA (TukTuk).
