This post will relay a step by step process for driving with Uber in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

 

Drive With Uber In San Juan

 

The ‘Age-Factor’

Before you can drive with Uber in San Juan, you must know that Uber takes its age policy pretty seriously. This age policy varies for different cities. To drive with Uber in San Juan, you have to be at least 21 years old. If you meet this requirement, please proceed to fulfil the steps listed below:

 

  • Must have a photo (clear headshot)
  • Drivers must provide valid driver’s license
  • Ensure the vehicle registration number is listed
  • Uber in San Juan accepts both official and temporary registration documents
  • The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify
  • Documents must clearly show a valid expiration date
  • Drivers must pass a screening process
  • Drivers must have an accepted vehicle (check below for additional info)
  • At some point during registration, you would also have to take your car through vehicle inspection at an Uber-approved auto shop or Uber activation centre in your area
  • Vehicle insurance document (if you already have a car you intend to use)

 

Note-It is essential to upload very clear pictures (jpg format typically has the least issues) in which all of the numbers and information on the pictures are very visible.  The name on the documents must match your official birth name and the name you provide on the Uber signup page.

STEP 2 – Signup

After you have gathered these documents and met the above requirements, you can move to the next step which is to signup online. The documents that you have gathered are what you would have to submit online. You can go here to sign up with our special referral link. This link redirects to the Uber official signup page.

 

STEP 3 – Uber Background Check and On-Boarding Process

Uber will typically take between 2 to 4 weeks to perform their background checks. Specifically, they will take the documents provided by the intending drivers in Step 1, and do the following.

  • A Comprehensive Criminal Background Check
  • Check to see if you have a clean driving record (to be sure that your license has never been revoked for any reason).

Subsequently, you will be tested on all of the general knowledge that Uber drivers are expected to have. You can prepare for this by asking already-employed Uber drivers for advice on what you should know for these tests. It is expected that as an aspiring driver for Uber in San Juan, you should have great knowledge of the routes in San Juan without relying a great deal on maps. This knowledge is a must have for every intending Uber driver. After these tests, there will be a few more interviews and some on-boarding sessions.

 

STEP 4 – Get an Uber Approved Vehicle

It is important to note that Uber has various services which require different types of vehicles. You should decide which of the services you are interested in before buying a car (if you do not have one). See the section below on “Selecting an Uber Service” for more information. Your car will be rejected if it has major cosmetic damage or it is salvaged (was involved in a major accident and had to be fixed with parts from other vehicles or rebuilt). There might be some extra requirements (besides the general) depending on the type of Uber service you choose. Your vehicle must be from the year 2002 or newer. Vehicles must have no commercial branding and must pass vehicle inspection tests.

 

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. The Uber services available in San Juan are the non-commercial UberX, and UberXL.

 

UberX is the mid-tier priced Uber service, and it also gets the most patronage from Uber passengers across the globe for this reason. This is the category I would recommend starting out with. UberXL is the 6 passenger version of UberX. It is dominated by inexpensive but nice vehicles that can carry more passengers than the UberX. You can say it is the larger version of the UberX service. Riders who request this service would typically be picked up in vehicles like these: Honda pilot, Toyota Sienna, Chevrolet Traverse, Dodge Durango, Dodge Gran.

 

What to Do if Your Vehicle Does Not Fit Uber Requirements

If your personal vehicle does not fit the requirements that are necessary for an Uber vehicle, it’s not a problem. You do not necessarily have to buy a fancy new car – a used car that meets the requirements of your selected service should do. However, many people tend to invest in a new car before driving professionally with Uber in San Juan. This isn’t a bad idea if you have the funds. Please see the “Nice to Know” section below for due diligence you should probably carry out if you intend to buy a car specifically for Uber. You also have the option of renting an Uber car through recommended Uber Rental Partners. You can find out more once you begin the online registration process here: SIGNUP ONLINE.

Uber Services: All About UberASSIST

 

Uber is a convenient way to move around the city and get things done as smoothly as possible. Uber has presence in over 600 cities and counting and continues to experience growth in new cities. To request Uber rides, customers need to have access to a Smartphone and the internet.

To begin, you have to download the Uber app and then go on to register your details on the app. Once this is completed, you can then go on to request an Uber ride and any Uber service available in your city. Your Uber driver arrives at your specified location to pick you up. Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on your needs as a passenger. Uber is passionate about creating services to meet the needs of its entire diverse passengers. The common Uber services include the non-commercial UberX, and UberXL; and the commercial UberSUV and UberBLACK.

 

UberX is the mid-tier priced Uber service; UberXL is the 6 passenger version of UberX. It is dominated by inexpensive but nice vehicles that can carry more passengers than the UberX. Riders who request this service would typically be picked up in vehicles like these: Honda pilot, Toyota Sienna, Chevrolet Traverse, Dodge Durango, Dodge Gran.

With UberBLACK, riders should expect to be picked up by professionally trained drivers who dress to suit the service. Drivers in this service are held to high standards. It is the most expensive and classiest service with black high-end vehicles. This service ALWAYS has a limited number of cars operating in cities. Vehicles under this service include Acura: RDX, RLX, TL, TLX, RSX, Toyota: Land Cruiser, Sequoia and others.

UberSUV is the 6 passenger version of UberBLACK. All cars in this category must have black exteriors in excellent condition, black leather or vinyl interiors with no tears. Vehicles models used under this service must be from 2013 or newer. This is the same for UberBLACK vehicles.  UberASSIST

Now, Uber has introduced a service called UberASSISIT that meets the needs of its passengers by providing a vehicle and driver that will offer aid to passengers who require assistance. This service provides assistance to the elderly and the physically disabled community. Drivers who are allowed to drive under UberASSIST are trained to accommodate elderly riders and those with disabilities. UberASSIST allows the use of regular UberX vehicles but must be able to accommodate folding wheelchairs, canes, strollers and walkers. This is proof of Uber’s determination towards ensuring that there is an Uber for everyone. Drivers signed up under UberASSIST can also be regular UberX drivers with a rating of at least 4.75.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Open your Uber app
  • Slide the button to the ‘ACCESS’ option at the bottom of the screen
  • Click the ASSIST button
  • Set your location and request

 

Please note that uberASSIST rates are the same as uberX rates.

 

Driver For UberASSIST

To become an UberASSIST driver, you will have to undertake training from third-party organizations to prepare you for this service. This training is peculiar to each city and you will have to visit the nearest Uber office to you to learn more.

UberASSIST drivers can also accept UberX requests. You can also opt out of this service at any time. When you receive a request, ‘UBERASSIST’ will appear at the top of the request screen. You may also receive a notification in the app that reads ‘Rider requests assistance’. All UberASSIST vehicles should be able to accommodate assistive devices like a folding wheelchair or collapsible scooter.

UberASSIST is now available in over 40 cities and growing rapidly.

Scotchgard SeatTreatments For Uber Drivers

 

As an Uber driver you should bear in mind that passengers are the reason you have a business and keeping them happy should be your priority. When a rider is happy while riding in your vehicle, the probability of getting good ratings and tips is very likely.

Keeping your car in good condition is instrumental in having a successful Uber business. No passenger will be happy while sitting inside an unkempt car. Once you drop a passenger, it is important to do a quick sweep of your car before picking up a new passenger. Clean the floor mat in case the previous passenger dragged in dirt or mud; check your seats for stains and keep forgotten items out of sight. scotchgard

It is important to invest in certain items like a durable floor mat, wipes and seat treatments for keeping those seats stain free. Scotchgard is an important item an Uber driver should have for the quick and easy removal of seat stains and repelling liquid spills.

In this post, we will review top scotchgard seat/carpets treatments an Uber driver needs to have in his car.

Uber Driver Safety Tips

 

Uber has made it possible for Uber drivers to have primary control of their business activities. As an Uber driver, you are your own boss and get to keep all your earnings except the commission Uber requires for every completed ride. The flexibility that Uber affords drivers is probably the primary reason why it continues to attract new drivers daily.

Safety has been a major source of concern for both Uber riders and Uber drivers who are total strangers matched by an app to take a ride together. In a previous post, we examined cases where Uber riders were taken advantage of by Uber drivers. We also explored some Uber passenger safety tips.

However, there are instances where Uber drivers are actually in danger. It is important to abide by Uber driver safety tips. There are cases where drivers are robbed, assaulted physically or plain disrespected by riders. This is why Uber drivers have been asked to invest in dash cams and other equipments that can help provide evidence if the incidence results in a case.

Beyond dashcams, how can Uber drivers stay safe in the line of duty? See below some Uber driver safety tips :

Uber Driver Safety Tips

Do not engage in anonymous pickups

As an Uber driver, your details are revealed to the Uber passenger once you are matched by the app. Some riders end up storing your phone number on their phone. Sometimes, these riders call you to give them a ride without going through the app. Some might even share your number with friends. This shouldn’t be so. All ride requests must be placed through the Uber app. Accepting anonymous ride requests can be dangerous. We have seen cases where the driver was robbed off his car. By accepting requests placed in app, Uber can track the rider’s location and other relevant details.

 

Use In app navigation

This provides turn by turn direction to the rider’s location. This will help you stay focused while driving and help you get there safely

 

Do not text and drive

It is important to focus on the road while driving. Texting and driving has been the cause of several accidents all over the world. It is important to invest in a phone mount while navigating the streets and do not text once you are on the road. If you must text, safely pack the car in a safe zone to do so.

Buckle up

Use your seat belt and encourage your passengers to do so as well.

Always use GPS

The system stores your trip details so Uber knows who you are driving and your destination

 

Take the high road

This is really important. As a driver, you are matched with a complete stranger and its possible your personalities will clash. In the event of conflict, exhibit respect and refrain from exacerbating the situation. Keep calm and if you feel like you are in danger, end the trip and report to relevant authorities.

 

Give Feedback

Uber drivers are rated as well as Uber riders. At the end of the trip, be sure to rate your rider and add a comment when needed. Feedback is important. This will help Uber sieve out unruly riders from the platform.

Subsequently, you will be tested on all of the general knowledge that Uber drivers are expected to have. You can prepare for this by asking already-employed Uber drivers for advice on what you should know for these tests. It is expected that as an aspiring Uber driver in Colorado Springs, you should have great knowledge of the routes in Colorado Springs without relying a great deal on maps. This knowledge is a must have for every intending Uber driver. After these tests, there will be a few more interviews and some on-boarding sessions.

 

STEP 4 – Get an Uber Approved Vehicle

It is important to note that Uber has various services which require different types of vehicles. You should decide on which of the services you are interested in before buying a car (if you do not have one). See the section below on “Selecting an Uber Service” for more information. Your car will be rejected if it has major cosmetic damage or it is salvaged (was involved in a major accident and had to be fixed with parts from other vehicles or rebuilt). There might be some extra requirements (besides the general) depending on the type of Uber service you choose.

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. You have a choice between the non-commercial UberX, UberXL and UberSELECT. UberX, UberXL and UberSELECT are the lower level services with more commuters – since they are affordable.

UberX is the mid-tier priced Uber service, and it also gets the most patronage from Uber passengers across the globe for this reason. This is the category I would recommend starting out with. UberSELECT can be found in the same class as the UberX services but it is a step above the UberX. UberSELECT vehicles are classy entry level luxury cars (but not as nice as UberBLACK vehicles). Drivers in this service have ratings of 4.75 and above. UberXL is the 6 passenger version of UberX. It is dominated by inexpensive but nice vehicles that can carry more passengers than the UberX. You can say it is the larger version of the UberX service. Riders who request this service would typically be picked up in vehicles like these: Honda pilot, Toyota Sienna, Chevrolet Traverse, Dodge Durango, Dodge Gran.

 

What to Do if Your Vehicle Does Not Fit Uber Requirements

If your personal vehicle does not fit the requirements that are necessary for an Uber vehicle, it’s not a problem. You do not necessarily have to buy a fancy new car – a used car that meets the requirements of your selected service should do. However, many people tend to invest in a new car before driving professionally with Uber in Colorado Springs. This isn’t a bad idea if you have the funds. Please see the “Nice to Know” section below for due diligence you should probably carry out if you intend to buy a car specifically for Uber. You also have the option of renting an Uber Car through recommended Uber Rental Partners. You can find out more once you begin the online registration process here: SIGNUP ONLINE.

Uber In Macau Continues To Thrive

 

To drive with Uber in Macau Hong Kong remains an ideal job for aspiring drivers in the city. It affords flexible hours and a chance to make good money on your own schedule. In a world where taxi monopoly was a secret pipeline for exploitation, Uber revolutionized the taxi landscape by creating a seamless and cheaper alternative. Uber has 5 services operating in Macau to meet the needs of Uber passengers.  This gives interested drivers different service options to choose from. Due to this intrusion in the taxi industry, cabbies are struggling to find their footing as ride sharing is fast becoming the preferred option. Uber and its other cohorts provide a cheaper alternative to local taxi services.

The requirements to drive with Uber in Macau, Hong Kong are not impossible to meet. Drivers must have amongst others: Uber In Macau

  • A photo of you (a clear headshot)
  • A valid driver’s license
  • Vehicle registration documents
  • Commercial Vehicle insurance document (if you already have  a car you intend to use)
  • Must have Third party risk insurance
  • You (driver) must be the holder, or at least a listed driver
  • Ensure the vehicle registration number is listed
  • Must clearly show a valid expiration date
  • Must have a Hire car permit.
  • Above all, drivers must be at least 21 years old.

Despite the merits of Uber operating in Macau, the service has been termed illegal due to certain legislations passed by the Hong Kong government. In many countries, Uber has met with daunting obstacles as local cabbies fight to have the service outlawed and banned whenever they launch. Uber in Macau has faced the same backlash from local taxi drivers.

Macau laws demand that Uber drivers must have hire car permits. The process for getting these permits is tedious and Uber is known to waive this requirement in Hong Kong and allow drivers operate without having hire car permits.

This has led to drivers having their licenses suspended for months. Uber drivers are being arrested and sometimes charged fines when caught operating in Macau. Uber, which first announced in early 2017 that it will be pulling out of the city of Macau, decided to stay back after protesters took to the street to protest government’s crackdown on the rideshare giant. Uber in Macau announced at the end of 2017 that it will continue to operate in the city while seeking a middle ground with the government.

Andrew Macdonald, who is in charge of Uber’s Asia-Pacific business from San-Francisco stated to the Post that, “With Hong Kong, it’s no secret we have an ongoing dialogue with the government, so that has been a challenge here”.

The government continues to insist that Uber has to run like a traditional taxi company which clearly goes against Uber’s business model. Uber was created to provide seamless transportation and overhaul traditional taxi practices.
