Take Uber partnership for example. All need to do is complete this 4 step verification process to turn your ride into a cabbie.
Meeting Uber’s Requirements
For you to become part of the Uber revolution, there are several requirements you need to meet. The first one being car standards. The vehicle should be ten years or newer, pass Uber inspection, and have all the necessary government registrations.
The driver should be over 21 years and have least three years worth of driving experience.
Signing up is the easy part, just fill out a form on their site. Then attach photos of your car to accompany this personal info. However, Uber reserves the right to schedule an inspection or reject the application.
Meet Service Requirements
This ridesharing company requires you to choose a service plan depending on the type of vehicle and your preferences. Options range from UberLux for high-end cars to UberX as the basic service.
After meeting all the requirements, it is time to create a schedule and start turning As to Bs. Though this might not be a good full-time job, the extra cash will do you good.
