    Hi everyone! I am new to the driver invite promo and could use some advise on where I can post it that's not going to cost an arm and a leg. I did some advertising on facebook but that can get rather pricey since I only got one acceptance out of over 2,000 views! Can anyone give some suggestions?

    Hello, I was hoping that someone could give me insight into this. I'm a new Uber driver and I thought every trip went really well. I don't really know what I did wrong - am I just unlucky? There were no complaints at all in the car while I was driving. There are no comments or anything for me...

    Sorry to post this, but I cannot for the life of me find these answers anywhere and Uber support has not answered me either. With the recent ticketing going on... Do I need commercial insurance or a commercial licence to drive for Uber in St. Louis? This info is not made clear on Uber's website...

  12. Pay
    I see so many drivers rushing over to an area because they were sent a notification for guarantees. Stop falling for it people. You should know from the beginning Uber is being deceptive when you see their guarantees are in 'gross fares'. They're inflating the number so it looks better and it...

    Wow this forum is enlightening, last night was my first time driving for Uber and I am just checking it out as a source of additional income. I will try again tonight and see but as I did the numbers it seems the only one making any money is Uber. Most of my fares wound up in the $3 range. I...

    Hello Toronto Uber community. So I've decided to start Uber as a part time income source. I haven't signed up yet as I'm about to get my new car. I've been hearing all these new regulation policies, and some people say one thing and others say another in terms of the insurance. From what...

    I signed up in Greenville a few weeks back- just before I had to leave town for a trip. I got back, got my car detailed, and now I'm waiting for my first fare. And waiting. And waiting. Any suggestions for a new driver? Thx, -Z
  18. Raleigh-Durham
    Ok, I literally just signed up to do this, today. But before I take my 1st rider, I need to clarify a few things. Any advice would be great! 1. Insurance: When does the Uber insurance start covering me and does it cover all 3 phases of the ride (in NC)? When I call my insurance company, what the...

    So I live in Bremerton Washington right now, I'd thought Seattle would be in the same territory, apparently Bremerton is part of Tacoma. So my understanding is you have to be within your region/territory to be able to go online and pickup rides correct? Can you be authorized to drive in more...

What are some essentials and necessities that I would need to create the best experience possible? What would I need to keep my car in great shape. I heard things like air fresheners, paper...
