Signing up to deliver on Uber Eats with a car

To begin delivering with a car, you’ll need to enter your name, Social Security number, driver’s license information, and birth date, as well as your vehicle information.

Then, every earner on our platform needs to complete a background check. This can take several days, but it is an essential step in maintaining the safety of the platform. Once that’s done, you can start accepting deliveries and earning on the Uber platform.

The last required documents, a valid driver’s license or photo ID, a profile photo, and vehicle insurance documents, need to be uploaded in the Driver app within 14 days of your first delivery. If they’re not added to your account by then, you’ll be unable to go online.
