Is there a way to open the driver app as though you have a rider? I was hoping to be able to practice and learn by playing with app without messing something up.
There is a common courtesy in this forum that if you provide a response like yours that you also supply a relevant link.Yes there is a training app
If you are talking about Uber, I am not aware of such a feature. I agree with the above intelligent responses from experienced members.
Whoever gave you referral. Go ride with them to pick up a pax. Get out at pick up point.
Without smartass answers which give entertainment value, I don't think anyone would be left on this forum. Some of the responses I found highly entertaining.Why give smartass answers when somebody's asking for help?
What I did was practice with my son. I dropped him off at the corner and drove back to our house. He had a cell phone and requested a ride. I got the ping, picked him up and drove to his destination a couple of blocks away. It cost a few bucks but it was worth it, and I always got five stars. A couple of times someone else got the ping, so he just cancelled immediately.
The Uber video explaining how to use the app is pathetically inadequate. It teaches only the basic operation and assumes no problems or complications. I'm really shocked that Uber just lets people learn the hard way with paying passengers in the car.
It's amazingly easy.You won't need training. Seriously. It's ridiculously easy, just watch the youtube videos on how it works.
Get out there in the daytime ,between 10:00 a.m. & 3:00 p.m. and get PAID to Practice !
Yes, that's the basic operation, but what about when someone wants to add a destination, what about when you've waited several minutes and the passenger hasn't arrived, what about the pool? Sure the basic operation is easy and is usually all you need to understand, but there are any number of things that can happen to complicate things, and Uber provides nothing to help newbies learn this.It's amazingly easy.
1. Go online and wait for ping.
2. Accept ping and directions to rider appear.
3. Follow directions to rider.
4. Wait for rider and let him in car.
5. Slide green "start trip" slider. Directions to destination will appear.
6. Follow directions to destination.
7. Drop off rider.
