Uber provides a software to connect drivers with riders, and so the company doesn’t own any vehicles. So this is where partnership comes in.
People make money on the Uber platform by driving their cars themselves and picking up Uber customers, or putting a fleet of cars on the Uber network and hiring drivers to drive them.
You can register on the Uber network as:
a.) A driver with no access to a vehicle
b.) A vehicle owner who wants to drive
c.) A vehicle owner planning to employ someone to drive
If you are registering with a vehicle as b or c, you will need a scanned copy of the following documents:
- A four door 2005 or newer car in very good condition, which Uber will require that you bring in for an inspection.
- Your drivers license (for ID purposes)
- Your third-party vehicle insurance certificate
- Your vehicle inspection clearance papers
You will then need to register online as a partner using this link
The entire process takes about 2 weeks, and here are some additional resources to help in your enquiry:
