Did you know that every time you rate an Uber driver at the end of each ride they're rating you too? That's right. Drivers score their passengers using the same one-to-five-star scale we use to rate them. This pretty much blew our minds when we found out and up until recently it has been a mystery. That is until the ride-hailing app started allowing users to request their rating.
1. Open up the app and sign into your Uber account if you aren't already.
2. Hit the profile icon in the top left-hand corner to see the drop-down menu.
3. Click Help, Account, and then choose "I'd like to know my rating" from the list.
4. Hit Submit and your rating should pop up instantly.
So aside from knowing your score out of 5, what does this actually mean? Well according to Quartz "Uber says that it will suspend drivers and passengers who fall below a certain rating" and it seems anything below the 4.6 threshold could put you at risk of being “deactivated.”
