Driver Quick Start: Registration & Setup

GetSwift is a software company that provides delivery management to companies. Businesses employ their own drivers, and they use our software to link their jobs with their own drivers.

GetSwift does not:

  • Employ drivers

  • Maintain a job vacancy board

  • Provide work for independent drivers not associated with a company

The GetSwift Driver app will not work (you will not receive jobs) if you are not approved by an employer who is using our software, please do not sign up for the free GetSwift trial offered.

Once a business has invited you to drive for them through a link, please follow the steps below. If your account username and password has been provided to you by your employer, please skip to Step 3.

STEP 1: Click on the provided link
