Are you convinced yet to drive with Uber in Oregon? Then follow the steps below:

 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

To become an Uber driver in Oregon, you will need to meet certain requirements first of which is the age factor. You have to be at least 21 years old. If you meet this requirement, please proceed to fulfill the steps listed below:

 

STEP 1 – Get your Documents Ready

  • A valid Oregon driver’s license
  • Drivers aged 21 or 22 must have (at minimum) 3 years of valid licensing in the USA
  • Drivers aged 23 (and up) must have at least one year of valid licensing in the USA
  • Drivers must provide valid Oregon driver’s license
  • Vehicle registration documents
  • Drivers must obtain a free Sole Proprietorship Business License
  • Vehicle insurance document (if you already have a car you intend to use)
    • 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
  • A photograph of you (the driver). It must be a clear headshot.
  • You must also pass the vehicle inspection test

Please 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 Online

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).

STEP 3 – Wait for Uber Background Checks

Uber will typically take two weeks to perform their background checks. Specifically they will take the documents provided in Step 1, and do the following.

  • A Criminal History Check
  • A Driving History Check

 

STEP 4 – Get an Uber Approved Car

As for the vehicle to use, you need to make sure it fits the car requirements specifically for Uber drivers in Oregon (or your specific city). Note – Uber has various services, so you should know which service 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 on that. Some of these requirements include the fact that the car should be no older than 10 years (A model 2006 or later). The car should also have no major cosmetic damage.

Salvaged or rebuilt vehicles cannot be used, and full-size vans or marked vehicles such as taxis are a no-no, too.

 

What to Do if Your Vehicle Does Not Fit Uber Requirements

Keep in mind, there is no need to give up, if your personal vehicle does not fit the requirements that are necessary for an Uber vehicle—in fact, many people tend to invest in a new car before becoming professional Uber drivers.

However, I would recommend not going overboard when you are purchasing a new car to be used as an Uber vehicle. It is a good idea to select an average but sturdy car that is not a particularly new or fancy model but fits Uber’s car requirements. Note – See the “Nice to Know” section below for due diligence you should probably do, before buying a car specifically for Uber.

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Another thing to keep in mind when you are selecting a car is which category of Uber you wish to work under. Uber in Oregon offers 7 Uber services, UberX, UberXL, UberSUV, UberSELECT and UberPEDAL, UberASSIST, UberWAV.

UberX is the mid-tier cost 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.UberX requires an everyday car such as a Toyota Prius, Honda Accord, Mazda3 or Mazda6, Honda Civic, Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Cruz, etc. UberXL is the larger form of UberX and sits up to 6 passengers. The UberSELECT is a premium service which requires driver service and vehicle quality to be “first-class.

UberSUV is also a premium service that sits up to 6 passengers as well. With UberPEDAL, riders request vehicles that have a bike rack attached to it. With UberASSIST and UberWAV, passengers are provided with vehicles that are wheelchair accessible.

 

STEP 5 –Interview

Once you have completed the preceding steps, you will be able to go in to the Uber office for an interview, for which you should make sure you have sufficient street and route knowledge regarding your area/city. You should be dressed professionally for this interview.

If you pass the interview, you will be invited for a training session at a specific date, after which your vehicle’s documents will be checked, and you will officially become an Uber driver and/or Uber partner.

You will also receive an Uber-issued cell phone which will have the Uber application installed on it to allow you to get clients. However, if you wish to use your own smartphone, it is perfectly fine to return the cell phone.
