The younger you can request your own trips and parents or guardians will receive a notification each time it is done and will be able to follow up from the starting point to the destination.

Uber explains on its website that the drivers in charge of making these trips will only be those who have “experience and high qualifications“and that all platform workers”must undergo verification comprehensive background”.
