To drive for Uber as a DRIVER WE need commercial insurance (about $2000 a year). SMOVE provide it to Uber drivers as part of the car rental and LionCity the same I think. If you own your own car you need to arrange it and provide proof to Uber so that they set your car up in their database. To even go online with the Uber Driver app you have to pick or show in the app a car number that is approved and insured (i.e. a SMOVE on you have rented or a LionCity one or your own). Commercial insurance coves third party person and property (i.e. the riders).Max Headroom wrote:That reminds me, PNGMK, now that you're an insider, perhaps you know what the deal is, insurance-wise, when getting on an Uber? Are Uber passengers covered if and when there's a prang? It's proven impossible to get the skinny from Uber direct.
Does Uber provide it? No. Does Uber insist you provide proof? Yes.Max Headroom wrote:That's real useful. Cheers, PNGMK.
Thought it was a bit weird how last week's article in the paper implied that insurance is more or less optional, rather than required.
