Signing up for Uber is easy, and profitable, as long as you sign up through a promotional referral link.
Uber’s sign-up bonus can fluctuate by market and time of year, but brand new Uber drivers can typically expect to be offered a guarantee of $500-$1,000 if you sign up and do 50-100 rides within 30 days.
Generally, the larger bonuses are in busy cities and require a larger number of rides in a 30 day period. The income amount per ride is pretty consistent throughout all markets.
You’ll receive your Uber driver bonus as soon as you’ve completed the required number of rides in the required number of days. This will be outlined in an email sent to you, so make sure you save this email and start counting down the days and rides you give right away!
To be a new driver for Uber, you must be at least 21 years old, pass a background check, have at least three years of driving experience, have access to an eligible vehicle and able to provide a valid driver’s license.
After signing up, you’ll have to wait to hear back from Uber as they will run a background check (usually 3 to 5 days) before giving the approval to get out and drive.
In the meantime, work on getting your vehicle inspection taken care of as you’ll need that document uploaded to your account before you can get on the road.
You’ll need to have all of the vehicle information entered and approved within the Uber Driver App.
This includes proof of insurance; make, model and license plate number; and vehicle inspection.
It’s important to sign up using the referral link below or you will not qualify for the promotional signup bonus.
