EXPLAINER: How to apply for an Uber TNVS franchise
With the announcement of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) officially opening more than 45,000 franchise slots for the registration of transport network vehicle services (TNVS) on Monday, February 5, you may be thinking about driving for Uber.

You might also be wondering what the requirements are and whether you’ll get accepted if you apply. The thing is, Uber doesn’t give you too much information about the requirements before you apply, so it might feel like you don’t have enough information to move forward with your application to become a partner driver.

Fear not. In this post you’ll learn the Uber requirements so you can find out right now if you can apply and qualify.

Most of the requirements are straightforward, but some aren’t. Other than the self-explanatory age requirement, there are a few extra details you need to know about each of the driver requirements.


Uber Driver Requirements.

These requirements apply to UberX, UberXL, UberPOOL, UberBlack and UberHOP.  If you’d like to apply for a driver's license today, click here.

  • You must be at least 21 years old
  • Have access to a 4-door car that is model year 2014 or newer
  • Possess a professional driver's license
  • Have a valid NBI clearance

  • You can find a car or an auto loan here. Just type in your message in the contact form below this article and let's see what we can do to help you.


What is the process to become an Uber driver? What are the steps?

The first thing you need to do to drive for Uber is complete the driver application and create an Uber account. Then, you upload your Driver's License, Official Receipt (OR) and Certificate of Registration (CR) of your car, and a valid NBI Clearance.

You must have a TNVS accreditation from the LTFRB.

An Uber driver needs to get TNVS Accreditation in accordance with the LTFRB Ridesharing Regulation. Most applicants start to get confused or impatient with this, but just to make it clear for everybody: Once you have submitted all documentary requirements, Uber will do all the footwork to make sure you get your accreditation and your CPC (Certificate of Public Convenience) Franchise. This means you don't have to go to the LTFRB office once you've signed up.

However, you have to submit CPC requirements to Uber within your first 30 days of operating: BIR Certificate of Registration, DTI Business Name Registration, PNP Clearance, Proof of Financial Capability, among others. Uber will be giving a complete list of these requirements and will update you the status of your application via SMS or email.

To understand more of the LTFRB regulations, visit ltfrb.gov.ph and take some time to read the following:

  • Memorandum Circular No. 2015-015: Rules and Regulations to Govern the Accreditation of Transportation Network Companies
  • Memorandum Circular No. 2015-016: Terms and Condition of a Certificate of Transport Network Company Accreditation
  • Memorandum Circular No. 2015-017: Implementing Guidelines on the Acceptance of Applications for a Certificate of Public Convenience to Operate a Transportation Network Vehicle Service
  • Memorandum Circular No. 2015-018: Terms and Conditions of a Certificate of Public Convenience to Operate Network Vehicle Service
  • Department Order No. 2015-011 (revised version): Further Amending Department Order No.97-1097 to Promote Mobility


How much do Uber drivers make?

You can expect to make around P1,500 a day, based on an average billing of P150 per trip for an average of 10 trips a day. If you're planning to drive for 6 days a week, you're bound to collect at least P36, 000 a month.

But of course, you have to deduct vehicle expenses. According to philkotse.com, weekly car wash (P320/mo), mobile loads for data (P1,000/mo), fuel consumption (P12,000/mo) and auto maintenance  (P1,000/mo) can set you back for about P14, 320 per month. This means you keep around P21, 680 earnings a month.

When you have a driver doing the work for you, deduct at least P12, 400 salary from the net total and you earn around P9, 280 a month.

To maximize your earnings, make yourself a business plan. Income can vary quite a bit based on your location, the day of the week, and the time of day. Most drivers maximize their income by driving on different hours, days and times and seeing what works best.

Millennials' Guide to former street names in Manila
Many of the younger millennial generation have heard of locations mentioned in old books, articles and documents relating to the city of Manila that are no longer on the map.

This is because several names of streets in Manila had since underwent a name change in the past, following nearly four centuries of colonial occupation.

Take for example the Raon Street, that famous road that houses gazillions of electronic gadgets, speakers and TV sets which is now called Gonzalo Puyat Street and Divisoria that is now called Salas Street. Dakota is now Adriatico Street and Herran is now Pedro Gil Street.

Find below the list of renamed streets in Manila.
