Drive with Uber and earn money anytime it works for you. Driving is an easy way to earn extra, and it’s totally flexible around your schedule. You decide when and how much you drive.
An Uber driver is a self-employed freelance independent contractor who uses the Uber ride-hailing app as a platform to book rides with users and earn by giving them a lift to wherever they need to go. Drivers can work according to their own schedule, on their own time. The hours are completely flexible and allow drivers time to pursue other goals.
The Uber app does offer different types of rides for riders, which means there are different driver positions. These positions usually depend on the type of vehicle but also depend on the experience and type of driver. To do Uber driver jobs, the positions for different drivers are UberX, Uber Black, Uber SUV, Uber LUX, etc. To know more, visit the Uber website.
At a suitable and convenient time drivers can open their driver’s account on the Uber app and after going on online mode can click on ‘GO’ to start receiving riding requests. Drivers can also set a particular time to enable riding requests automatically without having to do it themselves. Drivers can also select ‘destination mode’ to receive requests from the destination they are in. Once an Uber driver receives a request, they have fifteen seconds to review the details and decide if they wish to accept or decline.
An Uber driver should have a 4-door car with a minimum of five seats, each seat having its own working seatbelt for an Uber driving job. This includes the driver’s seat. All vehicles need to have valid vehicle registration and the appropriate insurance. All cars should be in a good and decent condition from the inside as well as out to pass the company’s own inspection, with all the safety protocols for a vehicle met.
Once drivers accept a ride request, they use the in-app GPS location to drive to where the rider needs to be picked up. After reaching they click on ‘Confirm Arrival’ letting the rider know they are waiting to pick them up. Drivers then wait a few minutes for the rider to come, and once everyone is in the car the driver clicks on ‘Begin Ride’ to start the ride on the app.
Then following the in-app navigation system that gives drivers turn-by-turn directions of the best-suggested routes drivers drop riders off at the destination previously selected. On reach, Uber drivers must click on ‘End trip’ to officially complete the ride and know what the final fare is from the Uber app.
Instead of earning a fixed wage, drivers earn a base pay on every ride they accept and complete. This base pay varies with each ride as it takes into account distance, location, type of ride, time, etc. The more rides a driver completes from an Uber driving jobs the more they can earn.
Uber drivers receive their pay directly into their bank account at the end of every week, usually on a Thursday. Drivers can also opt for the Instant CashOut feature the app offers to withdraw from their earnings up to five times a day.
You can do Uber part-time jobs, but the condition for payment remains the same.
Uber makes it known to all their users that a tip for drivers is by no means necessary. Riders can give their drivers tips but they are not in any way compelled to. However many drivers increase their weekly earnings through tips by ensuring their riders receive a professional quality and enjoyable ride. The tips can be seen in the Uber app.
