Take it from me.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to be a 5 Star Uber Driver ---- say 100++ Ratings.

When i started driving i knew for a fact i would never keep my 5 star rating, and i actually started with 40 5 Stars in a row.

But some ******* will always come along to take you down and leave you a 4 star or worse.

****I would even say without question, some people would even leave u a 4 star rating just to break your 5 star rating****
Child locks on door. End ride. They try handle.
Turn around and say door only opens on five star rides. Stare into them with a blank face mouth slightly agape.

My only 1 star came from a SELECT shortly after I first opened my Black Car account (I'd already been doing SELECT in my market so I wasn't newbie had a 4.93 rating after almost 1,000 trips on personal driver account). Picked up, destination is 30 minutes away. Chatting along the ride, he tells me he's been in London the last 3 months and we're going to a party (Memorial Day Weekend) at his friend's new house. Friend moved while he was in London. We get to address, address does not physically exist (it's basically a property line). I ask him if maybe he wants to call his friend and confirm the address. He's says no, just drop him off at the line of cars at house next to the address because that's probably the party. 20 minutes later rating dropped from 4.94 to 4.67 plus Rider Feedback: Drop Offs. Completely my fault right? I'm wrong because you didn't want to confirm an address after you've been overseas for 3 months? Luckily I only had a few rated trips so each new 5 star exponentially increased my rating. My Black Car driver account is back up to 4.96 And my personal is still 4.93. So yeah ignore the ratings. Can't please everyone and some people are just straight up pissant.

Should of went back with ski mask and tire iron. Only properly rated trips get to walk properly.

It's possible welcome to the world though as mentioned above one bar hopping d bag on a Wednesday at 3pm will point at you and say "I would of gave you 5 stars but you like the Beatles so you get 4."

Chicago driver 350 rides 4.99 all 5 stars and 1 four from a punk.
Which is why I always have classical music when the pax gets in the car and tell them they can adjust the radio or if they want it off. Assuming the language isn't vulgar of course. I'll allow almost anything accept rap music. Sorry just not my kind of music.

ratings are not really important....there is no difference between a 4.67 rating and a 4.95 rating. What is important to you..Money!!!....is exactly what is important to Uber/Lyft...if you can get the pax from point A to point B....for as little as possible....so the pax keeps coming back... and Uber/Lyft gets their share and of course all the booking fees and upfront pricing....that is all that matters. What really is important is the number of rides you've done. If you are in the 5000+ category....I think they look at that more.....

This actually make me feel a little better.

Got a 1 star on ride #25. No clue as to why. Only issue I had was having to call them, as they gave me address to a Large Shopping mall, to figure out which door to pick them up at. Attitude all the way....1 mile micro ride. Problem is, with only 10 ratings (Seriously? we are required to rate passengers... but its not the other way around?) It dropped me to a 4.6.

Time to build up that star rating....

Just wait until you get that first hood rat that gives you a 4 star rating for a flawless drive.....thatll take the wind out of your sails and make you a true surly Uber Driver.

4.94 rating, 301 rated rides.
It has to me. Makes me not want to drive in the hood, and I hate that I feel that way.

I'm 4.94 w Uber across 500 rides. Inevitably, 5 will go away. Whether someone rating 4 who thinks 4 is good, another uber driver trying to trim competition, etc. I saw one last night w/ 5 stars on 15 trips and I didn't have the heart to leave 4 - even though they had their phone in their lap(looking down), clueless on navigation and no Uber sticker on car.
