It wasn’t too long ago when we had to call a number provided by some phone directory to get transportation to and from locations. Now it’s as easy as opening up your UBER apps and getting transportation from pretty much anywhere in the US. For those who are interesting in driving for the giant ride-sharing company, it’s quite simple:
- Be at least 21 years of age
- Have at least one year of driving experience in the U.S. (3 years if you are under 23 years old)
- Use a four-door vehicle
- Have a valid U.S. driver’s license
Other Important Info
- Proof of insurance (try Pay-by-mile insurance)
- UBER will review past driving and criminal history
So now that you know how to join, why would someone like you join? The best way to look at UBER is a side hustle business. You’ll be an independent contractor earning money set on your own schedule. You can also join UBER Eats, an additional service available to UBER Drivers for additional money-making opportunities.
Your First Ride with UBER
If you are new to the whole UBER driving experience, you’ll be a bit more anxious on your first ride. Afterall, this is a new experience and you’ll be driving guests in your backseat. It’s important to realize that each person is different. Some UBER drivers pick up on personalities fairly instantly, but you’ll also be able to see the ratings of each UBER passenger before you pick them up. With 24/7 support and a user-friendly app to help the driving experience, you’ll have the tools necessary to run a successful UBER business.
