Over the years, Uber has become an increasingly popular method of transportation - so it’s no surprise that our Las Vegas auto shop will often have customers who are Uber drivers. Not only does the service provide a safer, and sometimes cheaper method to commute, it also allows the Las Vegas locals to earn a decent amount of income, among other benefits.
For one thing, becoming an Uber driver can grant you flexibility. You get to choose when you want to work, and you also get to meet a lot of new people. Another benefit that drivers can enjoy is the surge pricing. Surge pricing is when the Uber app can charge up to three times the normal fare, depending on the traffic situation and demand.
Anyone can be an Uber driver. You just need to be over 21 years old, have a valid driver’s license, and have access to a four-door vehicle. You don’t even need to buy a new car, you can use your car as long as it is in good working condition. Besides the requirements mentioned, you also have to provide Uber with your social security number, and you also have to pass the background test. Some cities require the car used for Uber to not be too old; some cities state that the car’s make and model not be older than 2006. You can use any make and model car, but there are a couple that are favored by more drivers:
Regardless of what car you choose, they will still need regular maintenance to make sure that it is always in top working condition, so you can make more money driving for Uber.
