Uber has begun blocking people from booking a ride through its driver-related service, Uber Drive.
The new ban applies to all Uber drivers, including those in Sacramento, according to a blog post from Uber.
It is a change from the previous policy, which allowed Uber to book rides through drivers who were not licensed.
Uber, the ride-hailing company, has long struggled to attract drivers to its services, with the average ride-sharing company in the US having just $1.4 million in revenues in 2017.
While the company says that its new policy is a response to “safety concerns” and that it has taken steps to make the ride experience safer, it said it will continue to work with regulators and drivers to make sure Uber drivers are trained to ensure that the safety of passengers and drivers is a top priority.
“Uber is committed to ensuring that all of our drivers are up-to-date on the latest research and have the tools necessary to safely operate our drivers and deliver rides,” the company said.
Uber said the new policy will be rolled out gradually, with some drivers being required to pay $10 to get their license back.
