    We’ve helped thousands of new Uber drivers get on the road in a Splend 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.

    Health and safety are just the basics. There’s also a lot to learn about financial help, temporary measures that might affect your work or your sign-up process, and even some new earning opportunities that you should be aware of
