New Partner Information: Activation
Congratulations on your activation and welcome to partnering with Uber!
We’ve put together this guide to help you understand what you need to know as you begin your journey with Uber. You’ll receive more information from us as you complete trips.

HOW TO USE THE UBER PARTNER APP
You would have watched this training video when you signed up but if you want to see it again, click below.
If you’d like an interactive walk through (where you can click through each step) check out this simulator.
Note: If the simulator doesn’t load on your phone, you’ll need to use a computer.
WHERE AND WHEN TO GET YOUR FIRST TRIP
Once you’ve watched the video above and are confident you know how to use the app you can go online and get your first trip! Your best chance to get your first trip will be by heading into one of the red areas below. Turn the app on whenever you are ready to start and drive towards the red zones in the evenings (between 6:00pm and midnight) and on weekends to maximise the trips you get.
For now, this is all you need to get started! As you complete trips we’ll send you through more information on support, payments, quality and a whole bunch more. Keep and eye on those emails and texts!
