Why Drive with Uber?
Sign Up to Drive Using Our Referral Code
Fill Out the Online Application
Once you click our referral link, you'll come to a page that looks like this:
Fill in your email, name, phone, password, and the city you'll be driving in and then click the button that says "Next."
Please note, the Guarantee amount shown on this page is just a sample Guarantee.
After you finish the application process, you'll receive an email from Uber confirming what the current Sign-Up Guarantee promotion is in your city.
Here's an Example of How the Sign-Up Guarantee Works
Let's say the Sign-Up Guarantee promotion in your city is $1,025 after completing 140 rides within your first 90 days. If you complete 140 rides within 90 days and only make $700, Uber will pay you the difference of $325, so you will get a total of $1,025. If you make more than $1,025, you will get to keep 100% of whatever you make.
Choose the Vehicle Option That Best Suits You
After you click submit, Uber will ask if you will use your own car, or be renting, leasing, or purchasing a car through them.
If you will be using your own car:
Check out Uber's driver requirements page to make sure you meet their requirements.
If you plan on renting, leasing or purchasing a car through them:
Check out Uber's vehicle solutions page for more info.
Verify Your Identity
After that, Uber will ask for your social security number to verify your identity and then you will be able to finish your application by uploading the required documents.
If you are using your own vehicle you will need to upload:
If you decide on renting, leasing, or purchasing a vehicle from Uber, you only need to upload your driver’s license to get started.
Consent to a Background Check
The last step is to consent to a background check. This part usually takes a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
Once you pass your background check, you will need to take your car to get an inspection.
The inspection cost is about $20.
Retroactive Uber Referral Code
If you forgot to use a referral code when signing up to drive, you can still retroactively apply one as long as it's within 7 days of signing up.
