1. Begin by opening the Uber driver app
To get started, locate and open the Uber driver app on your smartphone. The app icon resembles a steering wheel against a black background. Once the app is open, ensure that you are logged in with your driver account credentials.
2. Navigate to the account deletion menu
Now that you’re logged in, tap on the menu icon in the top left corner of the app. This will open a side panel with various options. Scroll down and select the “Help” option from the menu, denoted by a question mark icon.
3. Find the “Account and Payment Options” section
Within the “Help” menu, scroll down until you find the “Account and Payment Options” section. Tap on it to expand the options.
4. Select “Account settings and ratings”
In the “Account and Payment Options” section, you will find several choices. Look for the option labeled “Account settings and ratings” and tap on it.
5. Choose “I have another account issue”
Within the “Account settings and ratings” menu, you’ll see a list of common account-related issues. Tap on the one that says “I have another account issue.”
6. Access the account deletion form
Next, you will be presented with a list of topics related to account issues. Scroll down until you find the option that says “My account.” Tap on it to open a new page with more choices.
7. Select “Delete my Uber account”
Among the list of account-related topics, look for the one that says “Delete my Uber account.” Once you’ve found it, tap on it to proceed.
8. Confirm your decision to delete
After selecting “Delete my Uber account,” a pop-up message will appear, asking for confirmation. Read the message carefully, as it explains the consequences of deleting your account. If you’re certain about closing your Uber driver account, tap “Yes” to continue.
9. Provide feedback (optional)
At this stage, Uber gives you the opportunity to provide feedback about your experience as a driver. Feel free to share your thoughts, as this helps Uber improve its services for both drivers and riders. Providing feedback is optional, so you can choose to skip this step if you prefer.
10. Finalize the account deletion
Once you’ve confirmed the account deletion and, if desired, provided feedback, Uber will process your request. Your driver account will be permanently deleted within a few minutes, and you will no longer have access to the app or any associated privileges.
Deleting your Uber driver account is a final step, akin to closing the door on one chapter of your life and opening another. But remember, there are always new roads to explore and new opportunities awaiting you. So, as you embark on this journey, we wish you the best and hope your ride into the future is an exhilarating one!
