I have been an Uber driver for the last several years. It has been a great job for me because it allows me to have plenty of freedom and flexibility to work when I want and play when I want. I like to travel, so with my Uber work, I can push very hard and put in long hours and make some good money. Then, when I am ready, I can jump on an airplane and go to places like Thailand, France and even Greece.
In this article, I will cover how to become an Uber driver and answer important questions about the driving (and earning) process.
How Do You Sign Up to Become an Uber Driver?
Signing up for Uber is a very easy process. When I signed up back in December 2015, it took me all of 24 hours to be on the road. Let’s go over the steps.
New York City drivers: Currently, Uber and Lyft aren’t accepting new drivers in New York City. But there’s a great alternative — driving for Via. Check out the generous Via driver bonus here. We’ve found Via sometimes pays more in their markets of NYC, Chicago, and Washington, DC.
