7 Things to Do to Get and Keep a Good Uber Driver Rating

Uber Driver Rating

The first question to ask is "Does a good rating matter?"

And the answer is "Yes, it certainly does."

I've had many passengers comment favourably on my 4.98 star rating, so they have certainly noticed it when they've called for an Uber ride and I've responded.

I believe that it makes them less likely to cancel, more likely to be favourably disposed towards me before I even pick them up and therefore more likely to give me another 5 star rating.

And... When (If?) (a little information from Uber would be great here) we ever get the tipping option in Australia, I believe a good rating will increase the chances of being tipped.

Although this article is about what you should be doing to get and keep your good rating, the first exercise is to monitor your existing rating and delve a little deeper into where it's coming from.

So for starters, tap "RATINGS"at the bottom of the Uber Partner App display to see your STAR RATING, CONFIRMATION RATE and CANCELLATION RATE.

Make a note of your STAR RATING. It's calculated on your last 500 rated rides and it's the measure you're wanting to improve.

It's believed that Uber will consider removing drivers with a rating of less than 4.6. I don't know if this is true or not.
