Always wanted to be your own boss and set your own times? This is your chance! With Uber, you decide when and how much you’re working. It is suitable for everyone, whether you already have a lot of driving experience or not. And there’s definitely no lack of passengers, as with the Uber app, you literally have thousands of riders at hand.

A typical ride
A passenger who would like to travel with Uber opens the app, enters their destination and pickup location, and hits ‘Request’. If you are an Uber partner-driver nearby, you will automatically receive a notification of the ride request and you’ll be able to accept it. Using the built-in navigation function, you pick up your passenger and after you’ve checked each other’s name and destination, you’re good to go. After the ride, you can rate one another, and your rider also has the possibility to give a tip. So, up your game and possibly earn something extra. The app often sends new requests to your device as soon as you approach your destination, this way you can proceed to the next passenger directly.

The app knows the way
Not familiar with the area where you drive? The app gives directions to the pickup location and the destination of your passenger. This way, your eyes can be on the road. Moreover, the app alerts you when there are low-priced petrol stations close by. Do you want to know more about the app? You can find all functions and tips on our special page about the driver app.
