If you have no job but you have a car then you already have a job. This is all possible thanks to Uber. Your car is the tool and you basically schedule how you will work. Customers alert you via an app hence no cut throat competition.
Basically, Uber is an Internet-based company that connects drivers and riders for mutually beneficial ridesharing agreements. But unlike most taxi services, Uber allows its drivers to use their own cars and largely determine their own work schedules.
But the experience is different on the customer end as well. Instead of standing on a street corner hailing a cab or Uber car, patrons use the Uber app on their mobile phones. Once they request a ride, Uber drivers in the area are notified so they can offer to provide the ride and earn some cash. Uber technology is simply the platform that brings these two pieces of the transaction together.
Now there are certain requirements you must meet to become an Uber driver. You must be 21 years old and above. You should also have been driving for at least three years among other requirements.

Uber does not hire you without doing a background check. This is a protocol that starts by filling an online application. Almost all drivers must undergo this check
The Uber Background Check
To become an Uber driver, you must consent to allow Uber to run a background check and driving record check. After you fill out the basic online application, you will be asked to complete a background check consent form that allows Uber to use a company called Checkr to perform the background check. Here’s how the process works, and the answers to many frequently asked questions.
Who has to do the Uber background check?
All ridesharing (UberX, UberXL, UberPlus) drivers and livery drivers (Uber Black Car) must go through the background check.
How do you begin the background check?
After you apply, your Uber driver portal will include a link to a background check consent form. Fill out the form and submit it to begin the background check.
What company runs the background check?
Uber contracts Checkr, a background check service, to run the background check. Checkr runs the check and communicates the results to Uber.
