2016 UBER Lagos Driver Recruitment & Car-owner Recruitment by bestphones: 4:23am On Apr 22, 2016
The Company
UBER is a global technology company that allows riders to request cars using a smartphone app. Cars are not owned by Uber but by individual "driver-partners" who drive cars they already own or by investor-partners who buy cars & hire drivers. Uber is in over 400 cities in 65+ countries across the world and has spread across Lagos since launching operations in Lagos in July 2014. If you know Lagos and can drive well, apply now to start earning ASAP.

Roles & Responsibilities

To be successful on the Uber platform, drivers must 1) know Lagos roads 2) be familiar with smartphones & GPS navigation 3) be customer-service-oriented. Driving on the Uber platform already provides steady income for a large number of drivers in Lagos. And if you own a car that is 2009 or newer and less than 100,000kms, you can put it on Uber and earn by driving yourself or by getting other drivers to drive for you while collecting a share of fares from riders. The entire Uber platform for drivers is designed to empower drivers and car owners to increase earnings opportunities.

* Valid LASDRI Card (temporary is OK)

EasyTaxi remains a better option

Nigeria is a very complex market to run this scheme. It might not be as straightforward as they make it sound for a driver to source clients and for a car owner to be guaranteed of regular income.

Car maintenance responsibilites have to be strictly negotiated and even with the best mechanics, our rough roads can almost guarantee that your 2009-2050 model car will not remain in top condition for very long. Also, a large number of people holding drivers licenses in Nigeria do not have good skills.

I registered with Uber and never bothered using them after the first try when for almost 3 hours, I could not book a ride using their app and they never provided a customer care phone number to call saying it was their policy to operate only via email and social media. I have been very happy with Metro Taxi ever since. I wonder how the larger populace who are not even savvy about using ATMs let alone apps will fare.


They have bombarded my phone with invites about this venture but sorry, its not my cup of tea. Wish them all the luck they will need and more.

Hmmm this is Naija o. If u can afford to own a 2009 and above car, I don't think u will want to be a driver unless of course you give someone to drive for you and cash in on him. And few people are trustworthy nowadays. Good move by Uber anyway.

OP, you forgot to add Abuja too. Uber started operations in Abuja about two weeks ago. So if you know Abuja very well, you can join the bandwagon.

To make it easier for you just go to jobberman and attend their trainnings.

Copy Copy is always the bane of Africans, the road network of Abuja is better suited for this than Lagos

It will definitely take some time for this to work and be commercially viable.

Sorry, Uber started operations in Abuja first. Lagos aint got to be the first all the time... There are other cities in this country also. ✌

Nigerians are terrible. The poster is just using people to get referral earnings. No problem with that, but when you LIE, it becomes a problem!

Uber does not have and has never had any deadline for recruitment!

Please note that drivers/partners are not employed by Uber! It is just an app that connects riders and passengers. All vehicle maintenance, servicing, fixes, accidents, complaints are borne by the car owner.
Also, drivers have to handle cash so getting drivers you must find one you can trust. Getting a smartphone, data, credit are all partner expenses. Please be aware BEFORE you try and enter!
