Default Uber in Australia

Hello peeps!

Quite eager to know if anyone has tried driving Uber cabs or Uber Eats in Australia and is it viable as a part time option!

A friend of mine (who moved to Adelaide in 2017) did Uber Eats till he bagged something permanent. From what he said, it wasn't so bad.

Good luck with whatever you decide (do share your experience if you give it a shot )

You should've held a full license for more than a year to be eligible for uber cabs.

IMO a full licence for a year is required.
Some of the drivers actually say that DiDi "pays" better.
Goodluck.

No worries.
Uber they say take 30% or so.
DiDi - 5%.
So yeah, big difference.
Goodluck.
