Step 2: Register your Banking Details

In your dashboard, click on the “Banking” menu and you will be taken to another page (

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.

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) . You can add several drivers including yourself, if you know the limit on the number of vehicles you can enroll, please share with us in the comments.


  1. Professional Driver’s License  + OR
  2. NBI Clearance

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: LTO Registration/ ORCR/ Sales Invoice
  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

Important Notes:

  • 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 3 years old or newer upon application (ex. If you’re applying 2016, the car has to be 2013 or newer)
  • You must bring this vehicle in for review by Uber before driving. You can add multiple vehicles, if you know the limit on the number of vehicles you can enroll, let us know in the comments below.
  • 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.

Step 5: Driver On-Boarding/ Orientation

Once you’ve completed the requirements, you can go to Uber’s office at 11/F SM Aura Tower, BGC for the Driver Orientation. The schedule is every day from Monday to Friday at 10am which usually takes 1-1.5 hours.

After this, Uber will do a background check and results will be released via e-mail after 7 business days.

Once background check is cleared, the mobile device will be issued to you–no CASH OR DEPOSIT needed from you!

Viola! You can go online and drive immediately.

Important Notes:

  • You need to bring the vehicle for physical inspection
  • You can go for Driver On-Boarding as soon as you’ve uploaded all the requirements above. No need to wait for the document status to be “Active”.
  • Releasing of the mobile device can take up to 7 days and NO CASH DEPOSIT will be collected. We’ve heard some Uber partners are asking some money/cashout from other people wanting to get a vehicle signed up.

Please let us know if there are details that need to be updated in this post, everyone will greatly appreciate your contribution!

  5. Hi. I just signed up for UBER. I just purchased a brand new car. As I was signing up, it says that the OR (Vehicle registration) should be uploaded. As of now, I don’t have my OR yet, all I have is the customer copy of the vehicle sales invoice. Is this alright, or will I have to wait for at least a month for my OR to be released and register for UBER. Thanks! Replies, comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.


    • If you plan to drive, kelangan po Pro license. Pero if operator lang po ang balak nyo, ok lang kahit walang lisensya basta ang drivers nyo Pro license.

    • Yes pwede ka magaapply as Partner-Driver. Just make sure na lahat ng ipapasa mong TNVS REQUIREMENTS ay yung sa Vehicle Owner (which is yung kapatid mo)
      Refer here: TNVS if vehicle not under your name:
      Also, get Php 2000 Sign Up Reward when you use our Partner Invite Code”QPKMY” to sign up as a Partner-Driver. The referral bonus will be given to you after you’ve completed 10 trips. Remember, your account (as a driver) has to complete these trips.

      If you’re a Partner-Operator, you can also apply as a driver yourself, just attend Driver Onboarding. It doesn’t count if the drivers under you completed them. 😦

  20. Really great write up on becoming an uber. One thing worth mentioning is the background check that you go through before being allowed to drive. Uber’s background check is part of the process involved in becoming an uber driver, one of a few requirements. It’s something that all new drivers must go through and is conducted by Uber once supplied with their required information and documents depending on your location.


  21. Do you still accept those that are interested in registering their vehicles to be part of UBER? We heard that you stopped accepting new applicants for UBER this 2016


  22. Question lng, gusto ko iregister un sa uber pero un vehicle is transfer of ownership. un sinalo lang kc hindi na kaya bayaran ang amortization. pwed po ba un?


    • Kelangan po ipatransfer of ownership nyo sa LTO tapos magreflect sa ORCR na nakapangalan na po sa inyo. Otherwise, kung sino po ang vehicle owner na nakalagay sa ORCR, siya po ang magpapasa ng TNVS requirements


  23. Gud day…. I am plan to be your uber operator and presently i am your uber partner. Am i possible to register because i have plan to loan a car this month. Pls reply…
