Becoming an Uber driver sounds like a great way to get a little extra money. But please note, that sometimes easy money may come with some risks. For instance, it is very likely that your personal car insurance may not cover you if anything happens when you are an Uber driver. The reason for this is because many personal car insurance policies specifically disclaim coverage for accidents occurring while the driver was driving for pay. For an extra cost, the driver may need to purchase supplemental commercial driver’s insurance or consider other insurance options.
If you plan to be an Uber driver, check your personal car insurance policy to see whether it covers driving for hire. Additionally, check with your independent agent to confirm whether you need extra insurance coverage to be fully protected as an Uber driver.
