New drivers accepted?


My younger brother just passed his driving test and got his first car. Is he allowed to use Uber or Lyft immediately or must he be licensed for a certain amount of time?

I've never looked into this myself despite being an experienced driver.

Oh yes! Who drives without a driver license? Your brother need a driver licence, Lyft or Uber won't risk the life of their customers with someone that has not been licensed to drive.

You need to have a license for one year unless you are under the age of 23, then it is 3 years. Assuming he is 18, he can't drive for them until he is 21.

Absolutely no! You are not allowed to drive without a driver license, not even when it's a commercial stuff. I will advise you help your brother get a license as soon as possible.

Nope! He's not allowed.

As mentioned, if he is 16 or 18, he will not be able to drive for them. You need to be a license holder for a minimum of 3 years so the general age is 21. If you are older then you only have had to have a license for one year.
