DriverLend

If you’re an aspiring Uber driver, DriverLend can help you get an Uber-ready vehicle quickly and easily.

While driving for Uber is an easy way to earn money, Uber requires drivers to have a relatively new car. If you don’t have the money and don’t want to take out a loan, financing a vehicle is a viable option to consider.

For a single weekly or monthly repayment you get a new car by using the services of DriverLend. As a broker, DriverLend can give you access to over 50 different loan products and can tailor the loan to suit your needs. After a set term you will either own the car or you can return it for a new one.

    Drivelend lrent cars at minimum $77 per week plus insurance is that correct or is that for the service of finding a provider?

      Hi Jahki,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Upon checking the $77 per week minimum is only for the vehicle coverage since DriveLend is a car financing broker. It still does not cover insurance. You may however check this page for insurance coverage on Rideshare and Uber

      Hope this helps!
