Uber driver breaks down how much he really makes per week after expenses

Although often considered the cheapest or black cabs, Uber drivers certainly don't work for free. Take a look below at how a taxi driver comes up with a breakdown of his weekly earnings (and it's probably not what you expect):

The YouTuber, who calls himself Driver Matty, revealed how much Uber pays Get in a recent video.

"So I was online for 25 hours and won £500," the driving force explained.

"So it's really £500 over the four days, which isn't too bad."

He added: "So this week so far I've made an average of £20 an hour. So it's not too shabby.

For comparison, according to Statista, the average hourly wage in the UK for full-time employees will be £16.3 per hour from 2022.

Even considering the average Londoner earns £21.19 an hour, the Uber driver isn't making himself too dangerous.

The YouTuber also revealed he earned £800 in 26 hours of work in a single week.

This equates to about 30 pounds per hour.

Matty clarified that this income is pre-tax and his taxi fares are around £200 a week.

He added that Uber is taking a hefty 25% cut.

A certain person replied, “Define 'brand'. An Uber driver could easily "take" £200 a day in fares, but then you'd have to subtract all your fares: car, taxes, insurance, fuel, congestion charges, licenses, etc. »

A London driver defined on his blog that the £1000 was a pure gross sale and not everything goes to your account.

“Next comes the hefty 25% fee for the pleasure of working with Uber,” they added. “It's £750 a week. £39,000 a year before expenses. 3,250 pounds more or less per month.

However, another user also warned: "You can work whenever you want which is good, but running a non-public rental vehicle is expensive.

"You have to keep the car clean and tidy, which is more difficult in winter."

An Uber spokesperson told LADbible: “Uber drivers in the UK are guaranteed to earn at least a national living, but 99% of them can and will earn more. In the first quarter of 2022, drivers were still earning an average of £29.72 per hour, which varies depending on where and when they drive.

"Drivers are also entitled to paid holidays and a pension, which has enabled us to hire more than 10,000 new drivers in recent months."
