Does Uber require drivers to speak English?
The Guru Take
No, Uber does not. However...
Currently, Uber does NOT require drivers to speak English. Upon driver sign-ups, they do not have any checks on English speaking abilities.
Exceptions? Always check with local policies and even potentially your insurance policy.
- While Uber does not require it, there can be other rules and policies that may apply. Miami-Date Airport, for example, fined a driver for not being able to speak English. (it was later reversed.)
- In Great Britain, it seems the English Language Requirement will be enforced starting later in 2017. Uber is fighting this requirement. More information here.
