The basics

How to drive with Uber in South Africa

Uber is a great way to be your own boss and make money. Most people are eligible to drive with Uber, even if you don't have a car. Here’s what you need to know if you’re driving anywhere in South Africa.

Get started

1. Sign up online

Got an email address and a smartphone? Great, now tell us a bit more about yourself and we'll get you started.

2. Book your Safety Screening and Driver Evaluation

Choose a location near you & click on the booking to start:

ALL other cities only require a Safety Screening that can be done at any Jetline store or registered Huru/MIE capture partner.

3. Upload your documents

Time for some paperwork. There are some of the documents we need to see:

  • A valid South African Professional driving permit (PrDP)
  • You have to be a minimum of 21 years of age
  • Provide a driver profile photo
  • Safety Screening Certificate
  • Driving Evaluation Certificate (ONLY required in CPT, JHB, DBN and PE)

4. Get a vehicle

Please note vehicles requirements.

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

5. Activate your account

If you've completed all the above steps, congratulations! You're ready to activate your account and start making money.
