Vehicle on-boarding guidelines

How does the waiting list work?

In the interest of fairness, the ‘waiting list’ process has been amended to prioritize vehicle on-boarding based on the date of sign up.

Therefore it is no longer necessary to join the waiting list yourself, as you will be automatically entered based on the date of sign up to Uber.

Prioritization of adding vehicle

You are automatically entered to add your vehicle based on day of sign up, and activations will be prioritised as follows:

  1. Date of Signup - first to last
  2. Driver Status - driving for yourself or not
  3. Vehicle Status - number of vehicles already on-boarded

Although the waiting list has changed this does not mean that you will get an opportunity to add a vehicle any slower or faster than before.

Keeping the system fair for all

Guidelines to limit the abuse of Uber Profiles and “slots” / “licenses”

When Uber first launched in South Africa, our mission included creating a fair, open and inclusive process for individuals to become driver-partners and access new economic opportunities. Four years later, this commitment has not changed. However, there are some individuals who have been using their Uber Profiles in a way that harms the fair and open process and restricts others from accessing the economic opportunity that comes with being a driver-partner.

In the spirit of fair and open access to the system, we have set out the following guidelines to limit the abuse of Uber Profiles and “slots” / “software licenses”.

You may not sell, rent or transfer your Uber profile or “slot” / “software license”, as this is against Uber Partnership Terms and Conditions.

Software license violation

Your profile or software license will be permanently deactivated if your account is flagged for software license violation. If you believe that your account was incorrectly flagged, please visit and report the matter within 14 days.
