There might be some of you who are wondering how to be an Uber Driver or Partner in Manila.

First, we recommend that you go to one of their Info Sessions to know the details firsthand. We’ve posted about their Info Sessions and its schedule here.

 

Secondly, we want you to refer to TNVS FAQs to know more about the LTFRB regulation or you can also go to Uber’s TNVS Guide.

 

Thirdly, we recommend you read this article about what being LTFRB accredited and regulated means for partners & drivers to know more the business you’re interested to get into.

 

If you need a list of accepted cars for Uber Manila, refer here.


Here’s how you become an Uber Partner:

Step 1: Create Partner Profile

Go to https://partners.uber.com/drive/  and  choose the city you want to drive in (i.e. “Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines”).

Select your Vehicle Type and Uber Partner Type:

You’ll be taken to this page. Fill in the required fields.

Update, as per LTFRB Regulation, car must not be older than 3 years upon application. If you are applying 2016, car must not be older than 2013

You will be asked for a Business Name upon sign up. Now, you might be wondering if you need to have a business first before applying.

So here’s the deal… you know LTFRB is now regulating Uber (and Grab) and this means they will be releasing CPC franchise to business entities. DTI Business Name Registration is actually one of the requirements for LTFRB Accreditation. But, you don’t need yet to register your business before you sign up as a Partner.

We recommend that you sign up first as a Partner and get the required business permits once you’re activated. You might want to read the TNVS FAQ hereTNVS requirements here and what it means to be LTFRB accredited.

NOTE: You can add and enroll a vehicle even if it’s not under your name. Just make sure the name in the Proof of Registration and Proof of Insurance is the same.

Salin sa Filipino: Maaaring mag-enrol ng sasakyan sa Uber, nakapangalan man sa inyo o hindi. Kunsakaling hindi sa inyo nakapangalan ang sasakyan, siguraduhin lamang na ang pangalan sa Proof of registration at Proof of Insurance ay iisa (kung sa asawa nakapangalan ang sasakyan OK lang po. Basta dapat ang Proof of Insurance sa asawa din nakapangalan.)

 

After sign up, go to https://partners.uber.com/login and you will see your Partner Dashboard:

Uber Partner Dashboard

NOTE: If you’re a Partner-Operator and DON’T plan to drive, you don’t need to upload anything here. But if you plan to drive, upload these requirements. You don’t need to add yourself as a Driver under your own account in the “Drivers Tab”.


Step 2: Register your Banking Details

Why do you need to register Banking details? Because this is where Uber will deposit the fares from your trips. So make sure that the details you provide here are correct. Otherwise, you won’t be able to receive your payouts on time (so much hassle!).

Uber releases payouts every week (click here to know the cutoff and schedule of payout). Also, the bank charges a certain fee for transfers, so expect that the deposited amount is less than the total fares. But don’t worry, we’ve found out the best bank to use for Uber Payouts.

In your dashboard, click on the “Banking” menu and you will be taken to another page (https://vault.uber.com)

Important Notes:

  • Make sure the name you register is the exact name of the bank account you’re trying to enroll
  • the Uber partner (account holder) and the name on the registered bank account does NOT need to be the same
  • For Bank SWIFT/BIN Code, refer to this link.

**UPDATE: If you’d like to know the best bank and account type to enroll for Uber Banking, refer to this post.**


Step 3: Enroll a Driver

You’ll need the following details about your driver/s: Driver Name, Cellphone Number, Email Address, Username and Password (you’ll create these) .

Prepare these Requirements per Driver:

  1. Professional Driver’s License  + OR
  2. NBI Clearance
  3. PNP Clearance (for LTFRB Compliance)

 

NOTES:

  • You can add several drivers.
  • If you want to drive as well, DON’t add yourself here. Upload your driver documents the Profile Tab. See the step above.
  • Each Driver has to have a unique email address and password of their own. These will be used as their login credentials when they go online in the UberPartner/Driver App.
  • The Number you indicate for each driver will be the number that the riders will contact. Make sure this number is the contact number of your driver so riders can call them.
  • If you have an existing Partner account and want to add a driver, Refer here.

Step 4: Enroll a Vehicle

In the dashboard, you need to add a vehicle and indicate these details about your vehicle: model, make, year, color of interior and exterior. Then, upload the required  documents as follows:

  1. Proof of Vehicle Registration: OR and CR. If the OR and CR are not yet released, you can upload your Sales Invoice first and update later on.
  2. Proof of Insurance: Comprehensive or TPL
  3.  Four (4) Pictures of your vehicle: Front External View (License/CS visible), Rear External View (License/CS visible), Inside View Dashboard Console and Inside View Backseat
  4. PAMI Insurance: Uber will process this for you once you’ve submitted your TNVS requirements.
  5. Provisional Authority/ Certificate of Public Convenience: No need to upload anything here YET. You will get these after submitting your TNVS requirements to Uber. Learn more about the TNVS requirements here or Uber’s Official TNVS Guide.

  • Make sure the documents are valid and not expired, expiration date is correct and documents are clearly seen
  • Model of the vehicle has to be not older than 3 years from year of application (if you applied 2016, car should be 2013 or newer)

  • The name on the Proof of Registration and Proof of Insurance has to be the SAME
  • The name of the Uber Partner (account holder) and the name on the Proof of Registration and Insurance does NOT need to be the same
  • Uber will deduct a Passenger Accident Insurance on your first pay out. This is Php 165 per passenger per year. This depends on the passenger capacity of your vehicle. Sample computation 5 seats (4 passenger + 1 driver) x Php 165 = Php 825 per year.
  • If you have an account and want to add a vehicle,refer to this post to know how.
  • You can add and enroll a vehicle even if it’s not under your name. Just make sure the name in the Proof of Registration and Proof of Insurance is the same.
