  • To participate, you must be at least 18 years old.
  • Be able to access a vehicle.
  • Cars, trucks, and vans are all eligible.
  • Some markets allow you to deliver by scooter or bicycle.
  • License valid for driving.
  • Currently insured.
  • For DoorDash partners, a smartphone running either iPhone or Android is required.

  • Vehicle Requirements -

  • DoorDash requires a very lenient set of vehicle requirements. Almost any working vehicle qualifies for donation. In some markets, you'll also be able to deliver using motorcycles, scooters, or bicycles.
  • Any year model would work.
  • Vehicle inspections are not conducted.

  • How the payment works -

    DoorDash delivery drivers typically earn an hourly wage. Deliveries are calculated based on the following formula:

    Earnings are calculated as Base Pay + Promotions + Tips.

    To calculate base pay, three factors must be taken into account: time, distance, and desirability.

    Whenever possible, Dashers evaluate what percentage of each delivery can be paid before accepting it.

    Peak Pay - In peak times and during peak hours, DoorDash often offers Peak Pay, a bonus added to every order.

    Challenges - The Challenges feature rewards for delivering a certain number of deliveries during a specific timeframe.

    Pay period - A check is deposited into DoorDash drivers' accounts once every week. You can also withdraw earnings instantly for a fee.

    Taxes - You'll be responsible for paying taxes on DoorDash drivers since they are independent contractors.

    DoorDash Delivery Shifts Scheduling -

    DoorsDash uses a scheduling system to prevent too many Dashers from oversaturating a market. To order shift blocks, Dashers use the 'Schedule' area of the Dasher app. It is possible to work shifts ranging from a few hours to a full day.

    In many markets, delivery shifts are competitive. Every day, new shift blocks are unlocked in the dark, so some Dashers stay up late to get the simplest shifts. When you don't log in within half an hour of the start time, DoorDash may cancel your shift.

    What Do DoorDash Drivers Do?

  • The DoorDash app organizes on-demand delivery requests for drivers.
  • Drivers schedule shifts ahead of time or can drop into open shift slots if they are available.
  • You sign into the DoorDash app and wait for order offers at the beginning of your shift. Order offers contain details about the estimated payout, the pick-up situation, and, therefore, the drop-off.
  • Simply tap to accept or decline.
  • Once you accept a delivery request, navigate to the restaurant and consume your order using the information provided in the app.
  • Upon receiving the order, the DoorDash app will direct you to the customer and provide you with special instructions. You'll be able to get in touch with the customer if you need any additional instructions, information, or circuit access codes.
  • How to apply?

    STEP 1: Sign Up

    You will be prompted to sign up if DoorDash needs drivers in your area, but if there are too many applicants, you will not be able to sign up and DoorDash will place you on a waiting list.

    STEP 2: Mode of Transportation Details

    There may be available in your city, but you will need to fill out your mode of transportation (car, bicycle, or motorcycle), driver's license state, and driver's license number. You will also need insurance for your vehicle.

    STEP 3: Background Check Consent

    Afterward, you will be asked to consent to a background check, so you will need to provide your birthdate and Social Security number.

    STEP 4: Get Activation Kit

    Finally, after passing the background check, you will be sent an activation kit that contains instructions on how to start.

    Upon submitting the W-9 form, you will be able to view an Activation Confirmation page confirming your request was approved.

    You will receive an email with tracking information on the delivery status of your Activation Kit, which will take 1 - 4 business days.


    By submitting, you confirm that you are authorized to use the number entered and agree to receive SMS texts to verify you own the number. Carrier fees may apply.
