driver requirements

To drive with Hitch, you must complete a driver application using the Hitch app.

Step 1 Download the Hitch app. Hitch is available on both Android and Apple devices.

You can click one of these links to download the app:
Apple: Appstore
Android: Google Playstore

You can also search "Hitch - Regional Ridesharing" on either app store to download the app. Make sure you get the right one! There are a few out there that are unrelated to us. We don't have a 'driver-specific' app at this time.

Step 2 To start driving with Hitch, first tap Drive on the home screen of the app.
Step 3 Enter qualifications and personal info. Check that all qualifications are met, then enter your full name, date of birth, and zip code.

Please ensure all qualifications are met, then enter your full name, date of birth, and the zip code that matches your driver's license.

Step 3 Follow the instructions to upload the required documents. Enter your social security number, which is necessary to perform a background check.

Follow the instructions to upload the following documents for approval:

  • Drivers License

  • Vehicle Registration (including expiration date and license plate number)

  • Proof of Insurance (including the expiration date, named drivers, and VIN)

Please make sure that all documents are valid and up to date.

5. Enter Social Security

Entering your social security number will allow a background check to be performed.

6. Submit

After you've completed and reviewed your application, press submit. You will be returned to the home screen, and your application will be sent into the background check process. Check your email for your background consent so that can get underway.

Once our team approves your driver application, you'll get an email confirming your approval and the following steps to start driving with Hitch. We're a small team; approval can take time as we manually manage each application. We are still hiring drivers, your application is in process, and we will move it through the approval flow.

Currently, our support team cannot provide specific status updates.

Check out our other help center articles here or send us a live chat in the app.
