    Overseas license

    Hey Guys! I just wanna know whether I can register for Uber Eats to deliver by car with my Overseas driver's license. If I cant, can I still register for bicycle and then use my car for delivery? Thanks in advance!

    No stopping fine Melbourne CBD

    Hey guys, just looking for some advice. So I got a $161 fine for 'stopping in a no stopping area' on Exhibition Street, Melbourne CBD at 9.11AM. Obviously I was either picking up or dropping off a rider. I went to the website and they had a photo. It shows my car with left indicator on, rear...

    “Sorry I don’t do Pool Mate”

    Huge laugh today as I was delivering pax to Brunswick, new job pinged around the corner. Headed off to collect rider to notice “rider is walking to the pickup point” D’OH! It’s pool! I hadn’t noticed the minuscule “pool” identifier because the sun was in my face and I was busy seeing off my...

    Uber eats & Ratings: No BAG? But i always bring a bag

    The delivery rating system is odd and flawed IMO. I understand late pick-ups and deliveries are almost always unavoidable but they still penalise you for it (most of the time it's because of traffic), but I recently got penalised for not bringing a bag to certain locations. But this is...

    [Australia, Melbourne] Is late night driving low ratings an issue?

    Apparently in America, drivers will take a hit when driving late nights and weekends. Is it the same as Australia, more specifically, Melbourne?

    Tax Time.

    Does Uber Melbourne have an ABN? Sitting here, trying to fill out a tax return, realising that I cannot source Uber's ABN from ANYWHERE. Any clues or hints??? Cheers

    GST question

    Hey guys, I have noticed on the Pax Uber receipt that GST is not listed under the fare cost breakdown which tells me that GST is not passed down to the passenger but the driver is absorbing the tax cost. Is this so and if so I have never seen this before. What are your thoughts?

    Using a motor bike for UberEATS in Melbourne

    I have noticed during my current short trip to Melbourne the many motor bikes parked on the footpath in the Melbourne CBD. This is especially noticeable in Elizabeth Street. I understand that it's legal to park motor bikes on the footpath in Melbourne. (Is this the case in all council areas?)...

    Its just not worth it

    Well, after over a year of driving and owing the tax office around $3K ($2100 income tax 2016 + $995 Q4 GST + PAYG Income tax installment) I have decided that UBER driving is just not worth it in 2017. You actually end up losing lots of what you earn, and even though we get GST credits, after...

    Super Bowl advice?

    I am assuming people will be going TO bars before the game, so going downtown (I'm in Melbourne/Pam Bay) to find passengers seems counterproductive. The question is, where to pick people up? They'll be leaving FROM their homes, won't they? So where do I maximize my pick ups before the game...

    Melbourne Forum boring, always same whingers.

    Melbourne Forum is so boring and negative always the same whingers on there who think they own the forum. Infact any other city forum is of much better value.

    Looking for someone's car to drive!

    Hi! I will be in Melbourne for a couple of months and I would like to know if it's common to ride someone's uber car (without renting or buying a car)? If so, which is the best way to find a fair deal? Thank you very much! Cheers Nuno
