Questions & Answers
Who can drive?

How much money can I make?
It depends on you and how often you login to the app. Passengers can donate as much or as little as they like for a ride, but we suggest a fair amount to cover your time and vehicle expense. Some drivers are making more than $30 per hour.
How do I get paid?
Passengers make donations securely via their credit card at the end of a ride. Drivers receive their contributions whenever they like. Donations are deposited directly into your bank account electronically. Super easy.
What about safety, security & privacy?
Safety is our number one priority. All passengers are required to enter their personal information (including credit card info) prior to joining the community, and they are rated by drivers after every trip. This helps keep everyone honest, visible and safe.
Sidecar offers $1,000,000 excess insurance coverage (with no deductible) for California drivers and a $1,000,000 Guarantee Program to drivers in other states. This coverage is over and above their personal vehicle insurance.
Do I need a special license or insurance?
Not at all! Community drivers are only required to have a valid, unrestricted license issued by the state in which they are driving. Current registration on your vehicle is also required. Because this is ridesharing, special insurance is not required, but insurance needs to be in your name. For more specific details contact your insurance provider.
