Whether you’re looking to make some extra cash, or just want a fun part-time gig that allows you to meet new people and explore your city, driving for ride sharing apps like Uber and Lyft is a great way to do both. These services have become so popular in recent years that it’s hard not to have heard about them. But if you’ve ever wondered whether it’s possible to make money as an Uber driver or Lyft driver, or how much cash you could earn by signing up for these programs—this guide will help answer all those questions!
How to Drive for Uber
Driving for Uber is a great way to earn some extra cash. It’s a flexible job, and you can work at your own pace. The more rides you give, the more money you’ll make.
Uber drivers also have access to special deals on vehicles and other perks through their partner programs, which we’ll discuss later in this section.
Drive for Lyft
Sign up for Lyft and get a free car:
- Go to www.lyft.com/signup and enter your name, email address, phone number and birthday to create an account
- Download the Lyft app from either the App Store or Google Play Store on your phone
- Open up the app and tap “Get Started” in the bottom right corner of your screen; this will bring up a tutorial on how to use Lyft if it’s been awhile since you last used Uber or Lyft (or both)
How To Get Free Cars from Uber and Lyft
You can get free cars from Uber and Lyft if you refer a friend who becomes a driver.
The first step is to sign up for both Uber and Lyft, which are the two most popular ride-sharing services in the United States. Once you have signed up, make sure that your referral code is entered into both accounts so that new drivers can receive bonuses when they sign up using it.
Once someone else has signed up as a driver, they will automatically receive $500 in free driving credit plus whatever bonus amount was advertised at the time of their signup (usually between $1 and $2 per mile). As soon as this happens, contact them directly through email or text message so that they know about how much money they’ve earned through doing nothing more than signing up on their own accord!
Driving for ride sharing apps can be fun, but it requires planning and forethought.
Driving for ride sharing apps can be fun, but it requires planning and forethought. You can make money by driving for Uber and Lyft, but you also need to be able to pass the background check. You need to have a good car that will pass the DMV check as well, which means that if your car is old or has problems with its registration or insurance policy (like expired tags), then this isn’t going to work out well for you because Uber won’t give you their vehicles until those issues are resolved.*
- Uber does offer some assistance with insurance coverage in some states where drivers are required by law: California, Florida and New York City (more on this later).
Driving for ride sharing apps can be fun, but it requires planning and forethought. You need to think about how much money you’re going to make per hour and also decide if this kind of work is right for your lifestyle. If so, then go ahead and sign up!
