To become an Uber driver is not a simple issue, you need to clear certain instances, you need to follow certain guidelines. Let’s go through the process once:
- Complete an Online Application Form:
So,when you have decided to become a driver for Uber, you need to strike first through Uber’s online form and fill it completely. The form will have access to all your personal details and you need to provide apt and correct information as per your documents as this will be used by Uber for your background checks.
Apart from your clear and crisp personal information, you need to also provide details about your vehicle along with the pictures of your car’s front and rear bumper with interiors.
Not only you need to provide the documents, but you will need to present the documents like your driving license, car registration and insurance paper.
- Car Inspection:
Once you are done with the filling of application form, then comes the part where you need to get your car inspected. Uber is one great cab service provider who has set up car inspection stations everywhere.
