Your goals - get there with Uber

Explore the real stories from our partner-drivers below and how Uber has made a difference in their lives.

Januz, Former Delivery Driver & Uber Partner

'The flexibility has allowed me to go back to studying part-time which with my previous job, I just couldn't. And if I need that extra money at the end of the week, I can just go online and drive. So, yeah, it's changed my life - and now I’m able to save for a house deposit.'

Virginia, Former Taxi Driver, now Uber Partner

‘I used to work for a traditional taxi company in Sheffield and would feel quite unsafe. So I signed up with Uber because of the safety aspect. I never have to worry about runners or robberies because all the passenger details are on record. My life’s changed since I joined Uber, and I absolutely love it - I love driving on the platform.’

Imran, Restaurant Owner & Uber Partner

‘I really needed something else to balance my life in a way because working in a restaurant can be intense. With Uber, I can choose to drive once, twice a week - so it’s a great way for me to make extra money in way that suits my lifestyle.’

Steve, Childrens’ Book Author & Uber Partner

‘I’ve been trying to launch my Chidren’s book business for many years. Before Uber, my chauffeuring  job didn’t give me enough time to focus it. Now, Uber has changed my life because I now have the flexibility and money to restart my project.’

Ilana, Aspiring Actress & Uber Partner

Driving on Uber doesn’t feel like  a job at all for me. I love driving and meeting people all over London. I’m currently with a casting agency trying to make it in event management and acting so it’s great I can fit that all in with Uber.

Abdoul, Former Shop Manager & Uber Partner

‘I’ve been working for so many different companies for a long time. So I’m really looking forward to getting my PCO license and finally being my own boss.’

Asif, Former Courier Driver, now Uber Partner

‘I make 3 times more money compared to my previous courier driver job. With Uber, I don’t need to worry about bills. If my child wants a new jacket - I tell him, buy two if you want.’

Nick, Father & Uber Partner

With Uber, I can spend more time with my baby son. I’ve been there for him throughout all his milestones. I couldn’t have done that in my old job.

Ahmad, PhD Student & Uber Partner
