Tips for approval on WesBank Deal


For those who have not yet applied, visit to do so and start the journey to get into your own vehicle.

Below are some possible reasons for decline and tips on how to improve your chances of success in future. For any other questions, please call 0861 MY UBER (0861 698 237) OR email

If your application has been declined, do not despair. Follow these simple steps to put you in the position to succeed in future.

Declined due to lower ratings (<4.70) and/or trip volume (<1,000 trips):

  • Remember that the app reflects your rating for the last 500 trips. The best way to correct a low rating is simply to put in greater effort in the service you offer your customers over the next 500 trips.
  • If you have not completed 1,000 trips yet, keep driving and you’ll soon get there. Several drivers complete more than 250 trips each month.

Declined due to excessively high credit risk:

  • Visit sites like TransUnion to purchase your comprehensive credit report. This should give you a clear understanding of your outstanding judgements and/or bad debt.
  • While WesBank will approve those without a credit history, individuals who display evidence of reckless spending/borrowing will need to rectify that prior to applying.

Remember that all declines are NEVER permanent, as there is always room for improvement.

You’re only as good as your last 500 trips, so be sure to give your riders the best possible service at all times to ensure you can access the best deals available to driver-partners. 

Best of luck,
