Drive when you want, make what you need

Make money on your own schedule.

Only on Uber

Minimum earnings guaranteed

A guarantee to earn at least the National Living Wage while you’re on Uber trips. This is a minimum amount, not a maximum, and you will continue to have the opportunity to earn more.

Receive Holiday Pay while you drive

Drivers receive holiday pay. You will receive an additional 12.07% of your earnings each week, making it easier to plan some much-needed downtime with family and friends.

Save for your future

You will have access to a pension plan that will include contributions from you and Uber, helping you plan ahead and build a nest egg for the future.

Get access to sickness cover or a New Parent Payment

With our AXA insurance scheme, you have protection from the financial cost of life-changing events with insurance from AXA. Now events like injury, sickness or having a baby don’t have to mean financial stress.

Learn new skills every day

Through our partnership with The Open University, you can get access to more than 900 free courses, ranging from business management to astrophysics, for yourself or a family member.

The benefits described here as available Only on Uber are in comparison with the three other largest app-based private hire operators in London (based on estimated trip numbers). Eligibility criteria apply.

Sign up as a driver in your city

Our city needs drivers like you to keep everyone moving forward. Thousands of riders request rides with Uber every day. You can use your vehicle to generate earnings driving in your city while getting riders where they need to go.

Uber also connects you to these ways to earn:

Deliver with Uber Eats

Try food delivery using your 4-wheel or 2-wheel vehicle. With Uber Eats, you can connect people with the food they love from local restaurants.

Refer drivers

Invite friends and family to join the Uber community. Use your promo code when referring others, and you’ll earn a reward after they complete a certain number of trips.

Helping you stay informed and safe

Support at every turn

We want every Uber trip to be hassle-free. So we’re here to help with account setup, fare adjustments, and more whenever you need it.

Your safety while driving

The Driver app’s safety technology helps you get connected to loved ones, Uber Support, and emergency authorities while you’re on the road.
