Step 4 – Upload Inspection Report

 

Once you have the Inspection Report, you’ll need to upload this in your Partner Dashboard.

 

 

 

Step 5 – Finding Drivers or Car Owners

 

In the event that you’re looking for a driver looking for a vehicle, or the owner of a vehicle looking for a driver, there are a number of ways that you can do it as mentioned below. This can be done through matchmaking with potential drivers that already passed the Uber requirements. There are two methods of matchmaking: Matchmaking Sessions or Online.
