Driving for Uber Or Lyft. Questions Answered

One of the most up and coming, working for yourself, business is driving for Uber or even for Lyft. This are great opportunities because you can be your own boss. You can choose your own hours. You can do it anywhere. Think about it. Even if you are on vacation in another state, if you need to pick up a few extra bucks, you can pick up a customer. It is the perfect way to get by while you are looking for a job or put up some money for the holidays. That is why we are going to look at the questions you may have. It may be easier to dive into the work for yourself business if you know what to expect.

Insurance Needs

The thing about driving for a living is that you are going to need insurance. You should already have car insurance to be legally driving. However, you may need more than what is legally required. You may need to add personal injury to cover your passenger as well. Uber has an insurance boost when you are on the app. If you are logged in, then they cover you a little bit under their insurance. When you logout, you are no longer covered.

Driving someone else’s car

You don’t have to have your own car to drive for Uber. However, you do have to have written permission to use someone else’s car for the app and you must be on their insurance. If you want to loan your car out, you have to have them on your insurance and they have to be registered with the app. You cannot loan your car out and allow someone else drive under your app sign in. This is a violation of laws that go beyond Uber and can get you into some serious trouble.

Car Requirements

If you are looking for a used car in Fort Lauderdale for this purpose, then you should know that there are very little car requirements. You need to have a car that is in a good state of repair. It must be up to date in with all state and federal regulations. You have to have proof of regular maintenance, including oil changes and tire inspections. You have not kept your car in good repair, or failed to maintain it, then it is possible that you could be held responsible caused from your lack of maintenance.

You may have more questions about how to sign up, what you need to sign up,and other requirements. These will have to be found with the app because of state laws, they may vary. For the most part, Uber drivers average about $20 an hour. That does seem like a lot, but you do have some expenses like gas, maintenance, and snacks and treats if you want to supply them. Every driver has a different amount of expenses so what you will actually make per day is hard to calculate. The interesting thing is that most Uber and Lyft drivers absolutely love thier job. That must say something about the driving.
