Well, ever since inflation has been rising, people have been signing up for gig apps all over the world to supplement their income. It is expensive to live, right? Why not drive for a gig app!

Most gig apps hire drivers as independent contractors, not as employees. So drivers have no real benefits.

In this article, we are going to discuss why drivers get deactivated, and how you can get your Uber driver account reactivated or reactivated with another gig app like Lyft, DoorDash, or any of the other ones.

One of the most effective ways of getting reactivated with Uber, Lyft or other major gig apps is through the Driverly Premium membership. Driverly helps gig workers who have been deactivated get reactivated. While it isn't guaranteed fully, with a simple membership, Driverly will do everything they can to help you get reactivated. They discuss the deactivation with Uber or the gig app, and often times this helps the driver get back on the road.

So, why do gig drivers get deactivated?

Well, a number of reasons. Firstly, low ratings. If your rating falls below a 4.6 Uber will most likely deactivate you. But also, if Uber passengers rate you low or report you even though you did nothing wrong, they are trying to get a free ride. Often times this will lead to a deactivation of the driver. Which is why it's important to have a dash cam.

Now, if you do break Uber's terms of service, or can't pass the background check for legal reasons, then you will be deactivated and no longer able to drive.

You can always file an appeal to talk with Uber, call customer support, or visit an Uber Greenlight Hub.
