Thinking of driving for Uber Brazil and want to know the requirements to get going? In Brazil, Uber operates in two of the main cities, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. In order to enjoy the Uber services that are available in those cities, you have to first sign up and create an account. Once you have done that, you can enjoy their ride sharing services.
Uber have partnered with the owners of vehicles in Sao Paulo and Rio to offer you taxi services at competitive rates that cannot be matched by other taxi companies. Uber offers a solution by making the roads in the cities safer from reckless and drunken drivers, boosting the economy of the country. Uber also assists in making the streets less congested since people find it cheaper to take the rides other than drive themselves to destinations. Below are the services that are offered by Uber, and we will be going through each one of them. You’ll notice that with Uber, there is a car for every price.
By registering to become a Uber partner driver you do not become an Uber employee. A contract is made between you and Uber as an independent contractor driver.
Depending on how many hours you drive and whether you drive UberX, UberPool or UberBlack, the income will vary. The average UberX driver makes about R $ 2,000 per week. We have a very good calculator that you may use to help you estimate how much you are likely going to earn.
Below are the vehicle service options that are offered by Uber in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo:
UberPOOL is a service that is offered in both of the Brazilian cities, and it involves riders sharing a ride to the same destination and splitting the cost amonst themselves. Uber have come up with a smart way to match the riders going to a similar destination. When requesting the ride, a notification will be sent to you letting you know which corner to wait for the Uber driver. He will then pick you up and along the way, you might pick up more riders to fill the remaining seats.
On arrival, the driver will drop you off at a corner that is near your destination. The only catch with the UberPOOL is the fact that it might take slightly longer as the cab goes out of the way to pick other riders. The advantage with the cab picking you up at a corner is that it saves time during traffic. Uber makes sure that the corner meeting points are to your utmost convenience in conjunction with the traffic at hand.
The vehicle requirements for driving Uber X are simple and as follows:
No self-adhesive cars are accepted, with red plate, pick-ups, vans and vans. No exceptions.

This is the cheapest of the rides that Uber has to offer in brazil and the fares cannot be matched by any other ride sharing company. In any of the Uber rides, you are allowed to bring one guest at a supplementary charge.
This is the option for those that like rolling in luxury. It consists of high end cars like the Mercedes S class and the Jaguar XJ. This is the option for those that are out to impress their dates, or those that are going for important business dates. UberBLACK brings about a sense of respect when people see you in one of the cars.
