How much can I earn by becoming an Uber driver?

becoming an Uber driver

One of the most controversial things for becoming an Uber driver might be the earning amount. As many people join Uber to increase their earning rates so it is essential for then to know how much they can make. 

A typical Uber driver, consider working 8 hours a day and one day off in a week will make them to work 48 hours per week, though the working time is totally flexible and it is up to you to work more or less. If we consider £15 per hour of working (which is only an estimate and this can go upper or downer) by working 48 hours per week you can make £720 per week. By reducing car services, fuel and rental fee (if you hired a car rather than using your own car) there would be at least £350 to £400 in a week and about £1500 in a month. It shows that it is a good earning job, isn’t it?
