We’ve helped thousands of new Uber drivers get on the road in a Splend PCO car and earn a flexible income.

Are you looking to become an Uber driver? We’ve compiled a list of the 3 most important tips you should know before starting with Uber.

Be organised for the Uber sign-up process

The last thing you need is a delay in your Uber application, so before getting started as an Uber driver you need to know the sign-up process inside and out to avoid any potential hold-ups. These are the most common ones:

Make sure you book your Uber appointment in advance since it can take up to two weeks to get your appointment.
Take all your documents to your Uber appointment. Forgetting just one document can cause delays.
