First, I want to mention, you must signup to drive for Uber before you can become an Uber Partner.
Step 1. Check if you meet all the Uber Driver & Vehicle Requirements. The Uber Requirements and driver qualifications are what you need to know before you can even become an Uber Driver partner.
Step 2. Apply for Uber, by filling out an Uber Application. It will ask you for your personal information such as name, address, phone, number, a copy of your driver’s license as well as your vehicle make, model and year.

Step 3. Once you have passed all the Uber driver and car requirements, you will need to get an Uber Vehicle Inspection.
