Make Money as an Uber Driver in Australia

 A couple of days ago, we had a client walk into our Rockdale Car Loans wanting finance so he could become an Uber Driver. Uber provides a taxi service which is cheaper and more convenient. At the push of a button on your phone, you can hail an Uber driver and track their progress to your location.

I couldn’t help but notice an email yesterday from Uber. The subject was ‘Uber creating 2000 new jobs in Australia in 2015’. No wonder we had a client walk in with the intention of becoming an Uber Driver. You can get paid weekly and earn great money as an independent contractor, simply for driving people around town. You can be your own boss and work to your own schedule.

To become an Uber Driver, you need to pass rigorous criminal and driving history background checks, be fully insured, be at least 24 years old and have a suitably new four door vehicle.

However, if you meet all the criteria, it doesn’t mean that you’ll be accepted. You do have to go through an interview process and then you have to stay in the system, which means you need a rating of 4.7 or above. Ratings come from Uber users. To encourage users to rate their trip, users are not able to book another Uber driver until they have rated their previous trip.

If you’re considering becoming an Uber Driver and need fast approval car finance with a low interest rate, give Lend4Cars a call on 1300 856 846.
