An opportunity that puts you first
Drive when you want, make what you need
Set your own schedule
Partnering with Uber in New Zealand is flexible. You can drive with Uber any time, day or night, 365 days a year. When you drive is always up to you.
Make more at every turn
Trip fares start with a base amount, then increase with time and distance. And when demand is higher than normal, driver-partners can earn more with dynamic pricing.
Let the app lead the way
Just tap and go. When you’re on a trip you’ll get turn-by-turn directions, be able to find areas of high demand, and get 24/7 support. It’s all available right in the app.
Hit the road
It’s easy to get started
Sign up online
Tell us about yourself and your vehicle, if you have one. If you don’t, we may be able to connect you with vehicle solutions providers.
Upload your documents
We’ll need you to upload a few personal documents, including your driver's licence. Once you’ve created a personal account, you can add your vehicle to your account.
Visit a Greenlight Hub
Schedule a visit to our Greenlight Hub in your city to attend an info session and, if you don’t already have a P Endorsement, start the P Endorsement application process.
Once you've provided all the documents that verify you and your car's eligibility all you need to do is download the Uber driver app to activate your account.
About the app
Designed just for drivers
When you want to make money, just open the app and you’ll start to receive trip requests. You’ll get information about your rider and directions to their location and destination. When the trip is over, you’ll receive another nearby request. 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 extra cash.
Know when you’re ready to hit the road. To drive using the Uber app, you’ll need to meet the minimum vehicle and document requirements (including holding a current P endorsement, which we can support you with applying for).
When you drive with Uber, you get 24/7 driver support and insurance coverage. 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
“My life has changed for the better because I’ve been able to spend more quality time with my daughter and husband.”
“My goal and dream has always been to be independent, to be an entrepreneur. Uber came in at the perfect moment.”
“Why do I drive? 50% the money, 50% the fun—and the fun part is the people.”
David, San Francisco
