Introducing the new Driver app, your partner on the road

The new Driver app helps you earn smarter with real-time information. Easier to use and more reliable, the app now supports you—like a partner—at every turn.

How the Driver app works

Going online

The Driver app is always available. So whenever you’re ready to drive or deliver, open the app and tap GO.

Accepting trip and delivery requests

Once online, you’ll automatically begin to receive requests in your area. Your phone will sound. Swipe to accept.

Turn-by-turn directions

The app makes it easy to find your customer and navigate to their destination.

Earnings with every trip

See how much you’ve made after each trip, and track your progress toward your daily and weekly earnings goals. Earnings automatically transfer to your bank account every week.

Rating system

Riders and drivers, plus other customers, will be asked to provide feedback on every trip.

Recommended devices

Owning your own Smartphone and Data Sim Card means that you will have access to email, internet, whatsapp and other communication channels – all key tools needed to manage your business. Having your own device is a necessity to operate on the Uber platform as it is essential for all partners and drivers to have access to these communication channels.
