Work that puts you first
Drive when you want, make what you need
Set your own schedule
You can drive with Uber anytime, day or night, 365 days a year. When you drive is always up to you, so it never interferes with the important things in your life.
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, drivers make more.

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.
Whether you’re driving your own car or driving for someone else, you need to have a valid South African PrDP and complete a Safety Screening.
When you drive with Uber, you get 24/7 emergency support. We also provide tricks and tips on how to stay safe while on the road.
You’re in the driver’s seat. So reward yourself by reducing your daily expenses and take home extra earnings by driving more.
