3. How can I become an Uber driver?

To become an Uber driver you need to fill an application form on the website. You can drive with Uber and schedule your working hours. Signing up is the first step in this process and you need to set up an account and after your account is completed, the connection with customers begins.

4. Do Uber drivers need to carry cash all the time?

Uber delivery drivers are not required to carry cash. Customers can pay via MasterCard and every transaction can be done online. Uber provides an alternative to conventional part-time work opportunities. Uber also allows bike delivery and scooter delivery in various cities, especially in urban areas. And once in a while, some drivers even deliver on foot.

Because this isn’t like other conventional delivery jobs, your schedule is according to you. You will get paid for your work when you want to deliver and you can manage your own hours. It's 8 minutes in the beginning and the time should be reasonable not like 1 min waiting etc. But if delivery drivers are waiting for more than 15 minutes and the food is still not ready then you can cancel that order through the app.

7. Does Uber fine drivers for Canceling the rides?

Drivers are not penalized or fined for canceling individual rides, but they are fined if they are frequently canceling the ride requests and if there are uncorrected patterns then they will also be fined. Uber also tracks the cancellation rate for each driver weekly.

In case of a problem in signing, you can reset your password by using the email address associated with your account. Uber will send you a link to reset your password and after that, you can sign in to your account.

In case of freezing or crashing, firstly close the app or quit the app. If it doesn’t work after reopening then you need to reset the network settings or else uninstall and then reinstall the app again on your phone.
