Alright so I'm pretty sure that some of these questions have already been answered in previous threads but if you guys could help that'd be awesome! So first thing I wanted to ask was, is it allowed to drive a co signed car for uber? I have fairly new credit and the interest rate would be far to high for what I want it to be, so I'm thinking about co signing with a family member to lower the monthly costs
Number 2 is there any Temecula / Murrieta drivers out there that can perhaps tell me the kinda of traffic and or weekly payment you guys are taking in? I'm currently residing in that area right now and if I want to make payments on a car that are around 220+ a month I wanna make sure I'll be able to afford them.
However I do plan on traveling to LA and Palm Springs from time to time if I feel I'm not making as much as I want to be making in said week.
#3 how long is the entire uber process from Signing up to Getting your car approved by uber to actually picking someone up for your first ride? I believe all I have done at the moment is complete my background check and uber login and I'm planning on buying a car and making payments, as stated in question 1, and I'm just wondering from the moment I buy the car how fast can I get started so that I can start making payments as quickly as possible.

Thanks for reading guys

Welcome to the forums.

- I don't think Uber cares as long as you have proof of title and insurance.

- I'm not from that area, but I don't think you'll get a concrete answer. Everyone makes different amounts based on their hours, location, strategies. My recommendation is to go out and get a feel of your area before driving; it'll help you once you get on the road.

- It can take anywhere from a week to a month depending on your background checks, records, and how fast you can upload all your documents.

- This may be the best advice I can give you: if you're relying on Uber to make payments on your car, it's better not to drive for Uber anyway. All the extra mileage and gas you will put on your car won't cover your expenses. You're much better off working for a retail/sales gig. You'll make much more money there.

Cool, thanks alot for those answers, really helped me out. And as far as the whole monthly payment thing, I only plan on doing this part time I have a current job that pays 'ok' ( which is why i wanted more weekly income ) and on top of that I just got my full EMT license in the mail so Im also applying for jobs of that nature. But yah , thanks man really appreciate it :D

No worries, I recommend reading up on the thread 'Uber Crack' to make sure you dont Fall into the habit of using uber as a sole income provider in case that happens
