Become an Uber Driver in Germany


Despite the apps and downs, Uber is back in Germany, operating in only two cities, Munich and Berlin. This brings about the opportunity for people to make money through them by either providing their services as drivers, or referring drivers and riders to the platform.


In order for one to become a driver on the Uber platform, they can either own a vehicle or drive for someone that has registered their vehicle on the platform. The first step to joining and starting to make money on the platform is signing up.
