Uber and Lyft will be available at 12:01 Thursday, June 29, 2017. How to heck can you become a driver?

Although there are no apps and the fares are not yet determined folks want to become drivers and the way to do that is to sign up at Uber, Lyft or both. Drivers can work for both Uber and Lyft simultaneously. Here's what you need to do according to Uberpeople.net.

If you want to drive for Uber, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years old.
  • Have at least one year of driving experience, and three years of driving experience if you're under 23.
  • Be able to pass a background check.
  • Have a valid driver's license, proof of insurance and a bank account.
    Also, your vehicle must:
  • Have a four-door vehicle that seats at least five people, including yourself
  • Be fewer than 15 years old.
  • Not be salvaged, reconstructed or rebuilt.
  • Not be a rental vehicle
  • Not have any "cosmetic damage, missing pieces, commercial branding or taxi paint jobs"

If you want to drive for Lyft, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years old and have had an active United States driver's license for a year.
  • Be able to pass a background and DMV check.
  • Have current license plates, registration and insurance with your name on the policy.
  • Own a smartphone
    Also, your vehicle must:
