The differences between UberBLACK and UberEXEC are often ignored due to their similarities. UberBLACK is a luxurious service that provides convenient and premium service to people with deep pockets. Just like UberEXEC, this Uber service takes a passenger from one place to another in a really nice car – better than regular cabbies. One of the differences between the two Uber services is the type of vehicle used.
As an UberBLACK driver, you have to use sleek cars with black exteriors. The vehicle’s interior can be black, grey or beige with leather seats. UberBlack drivers are entitled to higher fare rates compared to some of the other services. As an UberEXEC driver, expect to get fewer ride requests compared to say an UberX driver, due to the higher ride fares. However, you still make as much, or even more than a regular UberX driver with the fewer rides. UberBLACK drivers also get longer trips, because for a lot of cities, these drivers are allowed to make airport trips.
On the other hand, if you opt for the UberEXEC service, you get a luxury car with a classy looking leather interior at a reasonable price. Another difference between these two Uber services is that UberEXEC is a high-end service for those who do not want to spend the Uber Black fare, but want to get around in fancy cars as well. This type of service is mostly used by professionals and business executives to execute official duties. The service is currently available in Singapore and a few cities in the United Kingdom.
If you wish to become an UberBLACK driver you need to have the following documents ready:
- Your Commercial Driver’s license
- Your airport permits (livery licenses) – not required in some cities. If mandated, you will need one for each city you want to make drop offs.
- Proof of insurance for your business
- W-9 documents (in the US) other business registration documents containing tax number (for cities outside the US)
- Commercial Vehicle insurance (if you already have an approved UberBLACK car)
- Vehicle Registration documents (if you already have an approved UberBLACK car)
- City Sticker (for livery cars, if required in your city)
For an UberEXEC driver you need the documents listed above too except the livery permit and other documents related to it.
Once you have all of these documents, the next step is to sign up through the Uber website – using our link: www.uberkit.net/signup. (You get a signup bonus if you use our link, which has our signup referral code already pre-populated).
Like earlier discussed, one of the differences between the two Uber services is the type of vehicle used. UberBLACK cars need to have an all-black exterior with black, grey or beige leather interior. Whatever type of car you pick, it generally needs to be a model from the year 2012 or newer (4 years old or newer). The types of qualifying SUVs for Uber black include the Cadillac Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon XL, Infiniti QX56, Lexus LX, Lincoln Navigator L and Mercedes-Benz GL-class. The qualifying sedans for Uber black include the Audi A6 and A7, the BMW 5 series, Cadillac XTS, Infiniti Q70, Jaguar XF, Lexus GS and Mercedes-Benz E-class. You can check the list here for an analysis of UberBLACK cars and what we recommend.
An UberEXEC car simply needs to be a luxury vehicle but not necessarily as pricey as the UberBLACK cars. UberExec approved vehicles must also have black exteriors with leather interior and a minimum seating capacity of 4 people. Approved cars under this service include but are not limited to these: Audi A7, Audi A8, Audi A6 (C7 shape & 5 seater only), BMW 5 series sport (5 seater only), BMW 5 Series (new shape), Jaguar XF Series, Jaguar XJ series(short wheel base), Jaguar X type, Mercedes S Class (Short wheel base), Mercedes E Class.
