With many new driver partners joining the platform each day, Uber needs to ensure a high standard of quality is maintained in an efficient, consistent and cost effective manner across the whole network.

A face-to-face training center model is costly, can’t be scaled, fails to promote long-term knowledge retention and is impossible to standardize, leading to a variance in quality of service from driver to driver.
