Anyone call for an Uber?

Jeff Crow

Anniston resident Jeff Crow works part-time as a local Uber driver.

Anniston resident Jeff Crow became interested in being an Uber driver after hearing a friend talk about it. “I asked him some questions, then went to research it,” Jeff said. “It’s a bit of a process to apply.”

A potential driver — or rather “partner,” as the company prefers drivers to be called — needs a driver’s license, of course, and proof of insurance before being interviewed. The designated vehicle must undergo a 20-point inspection, inside and out, with a written report submitted to Uber. The process must be repeated every year.
