Driving with Uber in Seattle offers a flexible earning opportunity. It’s a great alternative to full-time driver jobs, part-time driver jobs, or other part-time gigs, temp jobs, or seasonal employment. Or maybe you’re already a rideshare driver and want to supplement your income by becoming a driver using the Uber platform. Drivers using Uber come from all backgrounds and industries, setting their own schedule to make life work for them.

Uber offers part-time driver job alternatives in all major cities in the US, including Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle—plus hundreds of other cities of all sizes across the country.

To be a driver in Seattle, you must meet certain requirements: meet the minimum age to drive in your city, have at least one year of driving experience, and clear a background check. The documents you’ll need to submit are a valid driver's license; proof of residency in your city, state, or province; and insurance if you plan to drive your own car. To sign up, the process includes submitting documents and photo; providing information for a background check; and finding out if your car is eligible (or getting a vehicle that is). For more information, you can go to uber.com/drive/requirements.

Uber’s mission is to reimagine the way the world moves for the better. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: How do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 15 billion trips later, we’re building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.

Drivers using Uber are independent contractors who work on their own schedule with flexible hours. Uber is available in more than 10,000 cities worldwide. Signing up is easy for most people. We welcome drivers from other parts of the driving industry, such as bus, truck, taxi, limo, catering, and commercial drivers. We also welcome rideshare drivers and drivers who have been active on other driving apps and services, such as Bridj, Curb, Lyft, Via, and Wingz. Driving with Uber is a good way to earn additional money. And you might also be eligible to deliver with Uber Eats. It’s easy to get started.
