After every Uber ride, you can rate your driver out of five stars based on how good or bad the ride was, but you may not know that Uber drivers also rate you as a passenger. Here’s how to view your Uber passenger rating.
When you request an Uber, the closest Uber driver will receive the request, and they’ll have the option to accept or deny it. If it’s denied, the request moves onto the next-closest driver. Generally, you shouldn’t have a hard time getting a driver to accept your request, but if you have a low passenger rating, that can affect your chances severely.
You may not even know what your Uber passenger rating is, but there’s an easy way to find out.
Start off by opening up the Uber app on your phone and tap on the menu button in the top-left corner of the screen.
Tap on “Help”.
In the list, find and select “I’d like to know my rating”.
Tap on “Submit”.
You’ll get a pop-up that tells you what your passenger rating is out of five stars. Tap “OK” to clear the pop-up.
For the most part, you shouldn’t have to worry about your passenger rating as long as you know that you’ve been a decently good Uber passenger. However, you might be curious if you got dinged during that one ride where you took forever to come out. If so, you can now easily view your rating to see if it took a hit.
How to Be a Good Uber Passenger
If your Uber passenger rating isn’t as good as you’d hoped, or you just want to keep that perfect five-star rating intact, there are some things you should keep in mind whenever you take an Uber.
Over on Reddit, many Uber drivers and passengers alike have chimed in on what makes a good or bad Uber passenger. Here are some key points to know:
- Don’t reek of smoke or any other pungent odor that can linger.
- Likewise, don’t smoke or drink during the ride.
- Don’t vomit in the car (a pretty obvious tip).
- Be ready when your Uber arrives.
- Don’t be loud or obnoxious.
In the end, it really just comes down to not being a jerk and having some common courtesy, which isn’t hard to do at all. If you can manage that, then your Uber passenger rating should stay pretty high and you shouldn’t have to worry about it for the most part.
