Become an Uber Driver

Drive with Uber by applying for Uber car finance

Uber is a ride-sharing mobile phone app that connects riders with drivers. Drivers all operate & maintain their own vehicles. It can be difficult arranging finance or leasing through traditional banks and lenders for your Uber car finance.

Uber develops, maintains, markets and operates the Uber app in multiple countries all over the world. When riders use the app to submit a trip request it is routed to the closest Uber driver. It is truly a Real-time ridesharing service picking the closest driver to the consumer that requested the trip.

 

Drivers have 15 seconds to accept a trip that starts flashing on their Uber Partner app. There is also in-app navigation that will direct the driver to the passengers exact location. If the driver can not find the passenger or the pin on the map was dropped incorrectly due to GPS error they can make contact with one another. Both drivers and riders calls are masked as a generic number in the app. That generic number than diverts to the other persons number while masking the callers phone number. Upon arriving at the passengers pickup location the passenger is alerted via the app. Drivers can choose “Start Trip” in the app to begin the meter. The passenger has the option to enter the destination address via the app and also change the destination address during the trip. The driver can again use the in-app navigation to get road directions and end the trip upon arrival.

Uber’s pricing system is similiar to that of a taxi and charged by the kilometre and time. If the vehicle is going above roughly 18-20 km/h then it is only charged on distance. All riders sign up using a credit card or paypal. All the payment processing is handled and automatically taken from the rider, a percentage is then taken by Uber and the remainder is paid weekly to drivers. Both drivers and passengers then have the option to rate one another on the quality of the service.

Instead of standing on a street corner and hailing a cab. Riders can use the app to call an Uber to where they are without the need to exchange physical money or make a credit card transaction.

As an Uber driver you can set your own schedule and work your own hours. You can easily go offline and log back onto the app as you please. There is no minimum hour or trip requirements, there is no office, there is no boss. You can drive and earn as much as you can when ever you want, Uber is an on-demand service that operates 24/7 all year round.

Uber automatically charges riders for tolls and reimburses the partner each week. The fare you see at the end of the trip is inclusive of tolls. They do not pay your toll bill directly – you will still need to do this.
