Requirements include: a recent police clearance; copy of driving record; copy of driver’s license; if have lived on island for less than three years 3 personal references; copy of insurance; recent vehicle inspection; a vehicle under 5 years old.

If applicant can match requirements (of having clean background record, clean driving record, insurance, and late model safe automobile) then they can expect to earn 80 percent of any income generated. The remaining 20 percent will be kept by Islandride to promote service and maintain and improve technology.
