Today’s Agenda

App Walkthrough

How to use the Uber Partner App like a Pro



App Walkthrough

Play Store - UberPartner

Here’s where you can download the Uber Partner app

(Settings - General - Device Management - Trust UberPartner App)

App Walkthrough

How to Start Driving

  • Open the app, tap on ‘Go Online’ and select the vehicle you’ve registered.

  • Tap ‘Go Online’ to start driving!

Note: When driving as a Partner with Uber, only use the vehicle which you have registered.

App Walkthrough

Accepting a Request

  • Before your first trip, ensure that your photo is clear and your entire face is visible.

  • Partners will be matched with the rider that is closest to them.

  • The app will alert you with a ‘beep-ing’ sound when you are matched with a rider

  • Tap on the screen to accept the trip.
    (*you have 15 seconds to accept the trip, after which it is taken that you have rejected the trip. The App will then endeavour to match you to the next nearest Rider)
  • Poor photo
  • Good photo

App Walkthrough

Starting a Trip

  • After accepting the trip, drive to the pick up address shown on the screen.

  • You may call the rider to confirm the exact pick up location.

  • To call the rider, click on the top corner of the screen (the screen on the right will appear)

  • Drive to the pick up location and slide to ‘Start trip’ once you and your rider are ready.

App Walkthrough

The trip and completion

  • Riders may key-in their drop off location.

  • If they have not, ask the rider where their drop off location is, and key it into ‘Enter Dropoff Location’.

  • It is recommended that you ask your rider if they have a preferred route - if not, it is recommended that you use the directions provided by Waze/Google Maps

  • Upon arrival at the dropoff location, confirm that it is his/her final destination before sliding ‘Complete Trip’
    (image on the left)

  • Rate your rider and slide ‘Complete Rating’.
    (image on the right)

App Walkthrough

Forwarded Trips - Allowing you to get more trips and earn more money.

  • Partners may now receive their next trip request while they are nearing the end of a current trip (before that the trip is over).
  • After the trip is accepted, you will be returned to the navigation for the current trip.
  • After completing the current trip and rating the rider, the App will automatically start the pick up process for the next trip you accepted, and direct you to the pick up address.
  • This is so that everytime you go online, you can get as many trips as possible.

App Walkthrough

Destination based Trips

  • Twice a day, Driver Partner's will now be able to set destination based trips

  • You will only receive trips that are on the way to pre-set destination points

  • Please note, you are not guaranteed a trip, if Set Destination is turned on. Rather, Uber will try to pair you with a Rider that is headed to a destination in the same vicinity/direction.

App Walkthrough

Cash Trips - the App now facilitates cash payments

  • If the trip is a cash trip, at the end of the trip, the screen will flash green and show the amount to be collected. (image on the left)

  • You must confirm that you have collected the fare before you can slide to complete the trip.
  • Earnings Boost also applies for Cash trips!

#PROTip: Carry RM30 - RM50 in small change to help make transactions easier.

Payments and Incentives

Earnings Boost - Higher Earnings

Earnings Boost Areas are areas where demand is so high that the Uber App is recommending higher trip fares for pick-ups from that area, and thus you should be able to earn higher trip fares.

Scroll up from the Map View to see which areas are entitled to our special incentives.

Once a trip with earnings boost has been completed, check the app and it'll reflect your earnings boost on-the-spot!

#PROtip: Uber does not charge service fee from Earnings Boost - meaning you'll receive the full boost amount!

Payment and Incentives

Planning Your Week

Earnings Boosts are updated every week!

To see ‘Earnings Boost’, go to “View all promotions” on your homepage, and you will be directed to the weekly promotions page.

Payments and Incentives

Multiplying Your Fares

For example: You complete a trip in the Area with Earnings Boost of 1.3x:



Uber Fee (25%)


Earnings Boost* (x1.3)

RM75 x 0.3 = RM22.50


RM75 - RM18.75 + RM22.50

Total Earnings (excl. tolls)


*Uber charges zero service fee from earnings boost

Quality, Safety and Respect

How To Be A 5 Star Driver

Customer Service - A Hallmark of the Uber Experience

  • Keep Your Car Clean and Tidy

Avoid clutter, and for best effect, also use an air freshener.

  • Dress Appropriately

Smart dressing will create a good first impression.

  • Only Go Online When Ready

To avoid delaying a rider, please only go online when you are ready and ensure that you have enough fuel.

  • Greet your Rider

When the rider enters the car, greet them and confirm their name for verification purposes.

How To Be A 5 Star Driver

Safety - Our Main Priority

Safety Belt

Always ensure that both you wear your safety belt before you start the trip.

Install a Mobile Phone Holder - and NEVER text while driving.

Make sure both hands are always on the steering wheel when you drive.

Harsh braking and speeding

Do not break abruptly and follow speed limits. This is especially important during periods of bad weather.

No drinking, no smoking and no drugs

Doing any of the above could have legal consequences under the applicable laws if performed while driving.

Obey all road and traffic laws

It is compulsory for all Uber Partners to obey all traffic laws.

Always mind your surroundings before you move the vehicle

How To Be A 5 Star Partner Driver

Professionalism - Conducting Yourself as a Professional

We strongly advise you not to contact a rider or save their number after a trip.

This is in breach of the law (Personal Data Protection Act 2010) and the individual

could press charges

Steer clear of sensitive topics of conversation

To maintain great driver ratings, we recommend you steer clear of any sensitive or controversial conversation topics.

We strongly discourage eating, drinking or play loud music on Uber rides

Respect is a core element of Uber’s community guidelines.

We’re an inclusive, equal-opportunity service

Uber welcomes everyone based on sex, race or religious preferences. So should you! We take complaints on discrimination very seriously.
