We will contact you once we have reviewed your application and ask you to proceed for onboarding. During onboarding, you will be asked some questions about safety and customer experience, and we will ask you to provide a self-recorded video of yourself as part of our KYC process.

Huptown has a disciplinary procedure that is broken down into three categories, which means that when a breach of our terms occur, a driver will have to go through the disciplinary procedure. Generally, category three infraction would lead to suspension and be reported to the police and the licensing authority in most cases.
Perks work by accumulating the Huppoint, which can be redeemed for a selection of rewards such as dining and daycation tickets, fuel voucher, discounted insurance and much more. We also provide holiday pays which are paid as service rebates and paid every forth-night based on a driver's tier status and vehicle category. You do not need to take any specific days off or claim your pay by taking any specific action, holiday pays will be shown as part of your experience report and paid directly into your account.
The three-tier system is the framework that regulates the employment relationship between Huptown and our drivers from the moment of joining us.

When you opt in to join our pension scheme by using your Huppoints, we will make an employer’s contribution and will use ask for you to agree to contributing around 20% of your hourly earnings from your agreed contract hours per month.
