Firstly Whats Uber?

Uber is a technologically-driven taxi company which helps customers hail comfortable taxis from anywhere, using just a smartphone application. The customer downloads the Uber app on his/her phone and when a taxi is required, just pushes a button to request one. Using a special algorithm, the app then matches the customer to the nearest pre-verified taxi and provides a fare estimate. The app also automatically charges the customers registered card and the driver also gets paid directly into his bank account weekly, so no cash ever needs to be exchanged. After the ride, the customer receives a fare breakdown by e-mail like this below:

If you are registering with a vehicle as b or c, you will need a scanned copy of the following documents:

  • A 2006 or newer car in very good condition, which Uber will require that you bring in for an inspection.
  • Your drivers license (for ID purposes)

You will then need to register online as a partner using this link, and then select what category you fall into.

You then get access to a profile. In your profile, you will need to set up payment details where Uber can send payment to you weekly. You can do this by going to where you login using the same details you used to register.

Information you will need to have available:
