Uber Will Pay to Play for Expansion In Germany

Uber will reportedly pay for commercial driver's licenses to avoid German ban

Uber is no stranger to legal battles, but the tough-negotiating startup appears to be making a rare concession in Germany. The ride-sharing company will pay the government fees for its drivers in the country to obtain commercial driver’s licenses, according to a report in German business magazine Wirtschafts Woche.

The company is looking at total costs between €250 to €400 per driver to get prospective Uber X drivers licensed and registered in the country. The low-cost Uber X service typically relies on drivers’ own cars, instead of the black sedans traditionally associated with commercial livery companies (and the initial Uber Black service).
