How To Rate An Uber Driver [Step-By-Step]

Learn how to rate an Uber driver, step-by-step. We'll cover why ratings are important and the steps needed to complete a rating after a ride.

Understanding Star Ratings on Uber

Uber operates on a two-way rating system, allowing both drivers and passengers to rate each other after a trip.

Ratings are an important part of the gig economy, essentially acting as a community-based feedback system that ensures quality and maintains the standards that Uber wants to uphold on its system.

How to Rate an Uber Driver [Step-By-Step]

As a passenger, rating an Uber driver is very simple. To do so, complete the following steps:

1. Completing Your Trip

Once your ride ends, the Uber app automatically prompts you to rate your driver.

2. Choosing Your Stars

You can rate your driver on a scale from 1 to 5 stars. A five-star rating indicates an excellent trip experience, while a lower rating suggests there were issues.

3. Providing Detailed Feedback

If you rate your driver less than 5 stars, the app will ask for more details. This is your chance to provide constructive feedback which can help your driver improve future rides. Your feedback remains anonymous, maintaining privacy for both parties.

4. Compliments and Comments

Alongside the star rating, you can also leave compliments or specific comments about what you appreciated during your ride. This positive reinforcement can highlight areas where the driver excels.

5. Reviewing Your Rating and Feedback

Drivers can view their average ratings, feedback, and compliments in their Driver app. This transparency helps them understand areas for improvement or aspects of their service that passengers value.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I approach rating my driver?

When rating your driver, consider factors such as punctuality, courtesy, and safety. Providing a thoughtful rating helps maintain the quality and safety of the Uber platform for everyone.

What if I want to give a low rating for something beyond the driver’s control?

If your low rating is due to factors outside the driver’s control, such as traffic delays, Uber considers this when calculating the driver’s average rating.
