      Hi Kevin, for car that is 10 years old, you’ll need to go through uber inspection to make sure that you car is still in tip top condition. The process is easy~ Just register and wait the admin to contact you.

      Cheers~

    I currently plan to get my license. If it all works out according to plan, should get my license by end of August 2016. Can I be a uber driver then ? Btw, I’m 32 years old.

      Hey Andrew, Glad to hear from you. If you have read the post http://bit.ly/29DDJ9T and qualify all the requirement mentioned, you are all set to start the Uber Journey!

    Hi Sean,

    Based on your posting on the car age, you said that we can still use the car with more than 5 years old.

    My car was manufactured in 2003. When I tried to activate my account, the agent informed that I need to contact Uber to submit my case.

    I tried to call the number but to no avail.

    Any idea how can I reach them?

    • seanyew

      Hi Zul,

      You may try to contact 0127110928,0127110706 for Penang place.
      If you are from other region perhaps can ask for another number from there~

      Cheers~

    Hi, I have perodua viva S series registered in 2013, can I drive uber using my perodua viva? Because I’ve asked with another company (Grab) and they did not allow perodua viva to drive grab car. How about uber? Can use perodua viva?

    • seanyew

      Hi Crystal, Uber able to accept viva but not Grab Car.
      Yeah, as long as your car still in good condition then you are good to go.

  4. Eddy Wafa

    Hello there. I just need some clarification on what to do next. As I already submitted the necessary docs via online, and all the documents are in order. So, what’s next? Do I still need to go to the center for activation? I’m stuck on what to do next. Would really appreciate any help though. 😀

    • seanyew

      Hey Eddy, you should expect someone to contact you for some briefing and document checking before you end up on the road!
      After the so call briefing, you should be able to drive 2 weeks from there.

      Cheers~

    • seanyew

      For your case, your cousin need to register with uber on the driver part. For your car, you need to ensure your cousin name under the car insurance. Then only your cousin can drive your car.

    • seanyew

      1. Just use the link to register. http://ubr.to/2dai7mN
      2. Wait for someone to call you up for briefing. Typicall within a week. Bring document for verification.
      3. After you are officially uber partner driver, drive certain trip that they requested and your bank account should receive Extra RM300 on 3rd week of your drive.

      Cheers!

    Hi Sean,
    I would to know is becoming uber driver for Malaysian only and can foreigner become a driver At any city which got uber in it , so foreigner can work or not ?
    Any other suggestion for becoming a driver in Malaysia ??

    • seanyew

      Hi Sham,

      To your question, i am not 100% sure but here’s what i know:
      1. If you are Uber driver in Kuala Lumpur, if you go Penang, you can’t be driver there instantly. You’ll need to apply from Management to route you over.

      2. Here’s the fact i know about Uber. It’s the same name but operated under different management. Even the rate, and charge are calculated differently across different city.
      So yeah, you CAN drive in different city, but again you need to apply.

      For registration, you can try this link.
      http://ubr.to/2dai7mN
      This will enable you to earn extra RM300 when you completed certain trips, at least it is applicable in Malaysia.

      Cheers~

  6. Laven Raj

    Hi there,
    First of all, thanks for the information. I was wondering if there is any Uber office in Johor Bahru to complete my registration or is it compulsory for me to visit the Kuala Lumpur Uber office despite being in another state?. Thank you.

    • seanyew

      Hi Laven, Nice to see you here. Uber should have own office at respective state. In fact the rate count is really different across each state. So just register with them already.

      If you haven’t register with them, can try the link below to get additional RM300 when completed certain amount of trips.
      Here’s the link you can refer to get extra RM300.

    • seanyew

      Hi Genmill,

      If you haven’t register with them, can try the link below to get additional RM300 when completed certain amount of trips.

    Hi Sean,

    I would like to know if my brother and I can use the same car as the car is insured under my name and he as the second driver.

    • seanyew

      Hi Izzat,

      As long as the car got register you and your brother name in the insurance, both of you can register with Uber, with the same car. 🙂

      If you haven’t register with them, can try the link below to get additional RM300 when completed certain amount of trips.

  9. Lau

    Hey,
    I’m currently on my study break, and I’m planning to be a part time uber driver for just a month or two. Is that alright? Is there a minimum period of commitment?

    • seanyew

      Hey Lau,

      It’s nice to hear from you.
      You are right on track.
      Uber does not have any minimum period of commitment. It’s totally flexi and you get to decide when you wanna put online.
      If y0u are night stalker, you may even online from 8pm onwards to probably 2am.

      However, you must meet the requirement stated earlier, e.g: have car insurance register under you etc.

      Here’s the link http://ubr.to/2dai7mN for you to get RM300 extra when complete certain trips within the 1-2 months.

      Cheers~

      • soon

      • Lau

        Hey Sean,

        I’ve done all the necessary steps to register as a driver since 2 weeks ago but I’m still yet to hear from Uber. Is there a way you can let me know the location of uber office or anyone I can contact in Kuching?

        Thanks

    • seanyew

      Hi Hamdan, It’s pretty simple. Just register through the link, and you’ll meet uber guy for them to perform inspection on your car. Just make sure you have a your car a good wash and polish before the inspection.

      Here’s the link http://ubr.to/2dai7mN for you to get RM300 extra when complete certain trips

    • seanyew

      Hey There,

      Unfortunately, Uber Malaysia is only for Malaysian.
      Am pretty sure someone asked before.
      Please look at the previous comment.

  10. Fizah

    If i want to become uber driver with P license is that possible? Provided that my age & car condition meets the requirement.

    • seanyew

      Hi Fizah, There’s no rule that you cannot drive with P license. 🙂
      But you must have confidence in your skills as if you drive dangerously, your rating will sure drop.

      Here’s the link you can refer to get extra RM300.

  14. Raihan

    Hi sean, i would like to ask. I have produa viva 850cc , is that i can register? Or uber have specific cc of car to join?

    • seanyew

      Hi Raihan,

      IN case you haven’t read the whole article above, i suggest you take some time to read up.
      “”””
      4 door cars and minimum 1.0hp INSURANCE.

      Yes, you heard me right. You may not need to have the car register under your name, all you need is the car insurance to have your name on it. The purpose is to protect your in any case of the accident occur. If you have Viva with 1.0 hp or Myvi and above, you still can become Uber Partner.”””””

  15. angie

    hi Sean
    I got one question can ask ?
    why I heard my friend said grabcar drivers also can apply for uber driver one?
    I thought we only can apply either uber or grab ?

    • seanyew

      Hi Angie,

      you are free to become Uber, Grab or Both Uber and Grab at the same time as there’s no conflict in between.
      In fact, you can earn some extra referral fee if you join Uber, then after some time join grab. But this will require collaboration between new driver and referral.
      You can PM me by emailling your detail to sean@seanyew.com if you are interested ton the extra referral fee i mention earlier.

  16. soon

    hi sean team.
    do anyone already unber driver ?
    can ask I am using samsung smartphone
    for your experience how long can we keep open our phone gps .
    I mean is it we need to let the phone rest after how many hours to avoid the phone spoit
    and normally your guys using power bank or car battery slot to charge our phone when we are driving ?

    • seanyew

      Hi Soon,

      there’re bunch of tricks to do that.

      You can either have power bank, battery car charger, OR you just work on specific timing where there’s guarantee Surge price, then back home to recharge again.
      Some even have 2 phone.
      It’s all up to your preferences.

    • seanyew

      Hi Hazim,

      Before that you must understand the purpose of uber restricting the rule. It is to protect you when things goes haywire.

      You just need to ensure that the car insurance policy add your name into it. As far as i am concern, 1st n 2nd name is FOC. Adding 3rd name shall need to pay extra 10-50 bucks.

      Just wait for the insurance renewal to add name. Or you can contact the insurance company to see if they allow to modify for you.

    • seanyew

      Hi Balan,

    • seanyew

      Just follow the article written and you are good to go.

      So far from the requirement you mention you are qualify to hit the road.

      If you haven’t register with them, can try the link below to get additional RM200-RM300 when completed certain amount of trips.
      The money varies according to different cities.
      Here’s the link you can refer to get extra.

      • Mira

        HI ! i read your article. i recently got my license thus i am still P . i read on several internet sites that you cant be an uber driver if you have P license. But, since Gopi said he is still a P and you said he is qualified to hit the road, plus you did not mention about a requirements on P license in your article. can you clarify this further ?

        Am i qualified to register with a P driving license?

        Thank you in advance.

        • seanyew

          Hi Mira, I suggest that you first register with Uber. If they accepted you and ask for a short briefing then you are qualified.

          The Very reason is because JPJ may have reinforce the rule for P driver which make this a gray area.

          Registration with uber doesn’t hurt anyone so i suggest you can do that same.

          If you haven’t register with them, can try the link below to get additional RM200-RM300 when completed certain amount of trips.

        • seanyew

          Hi ilse,
