Getting Started

Thanks for your interest in joining the carGO driving community! To become a carGO driver, all applicants and their vehicles must meet the following requirements.

carGO is a technology platform specially designed to connect drivers and riders in communities in micropolitan areas. Drivers use their own vehicle and the carGO app to pick up riders and drive them to their preferred destinations. Drivers are paid a fare for each completed ride and have the flexibility to drive whenever they wish, and make extra money on their own schedule.

Become a Driver

carGO currently connects drivers and riders along the I-55 corridor in southeast Missouri from Perryville to Sikeston, including the operational headquarters in Cape Girardeau.

We hope to expand to other similar micropolitan areas in the near future.

Every carGO driver must:
  1. be at least 21 years old with a valid Missouri driver’s license;
  2. have at least one year of driving experience in the U.S.;
  3. provide valid registration for the motor vehicle used to provide carGO rides;
  4. provide valid certificate of insurance with required liability insurance on the motor vehicle used to deliver carGO rides;
  5. use an iPhone 5 or newer running iOS 8 or newer, or an Android device running 4.0 or newer with enough data to continuously use location services;
  6. and consent to and pass a third party background screening for the following driving and criminal records.
Every carGO driver must not:
  1. have been convicted of a felony, violent crime, being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fraud, sexual offenses, domestic or child abuse, use of a motor vehicle to commit a felony, a crime involving property damage or theft, or acts of terror;
  2. be listed in the National Sex Offender Registry database;
  3. have been convicted of one major (e.g., driving on suspended license, reckless driving) or more than three minor (e.g., traffic violations, accidents,) in the past three years.
Every carGO driver must use a vehicle that:
  1. is an eligible 4-door, 4-passenger vehicle with at least 5 seat belts (2004 or newer vehicle)
  2. has a valid Missouri Vehicle Safety Inspection certification/sticker from an approved provider; and

carGO maintains automobile liability insurance on behalf of all rideshare drivers while signed in and in On Duty mode in the carGO app. As a ridesharing driver, you are also required to maintain auto insurance that meets Missouri’s minimum financial responsibility.
