  • A clear criminal record. A background check will be performed by Bolt at Raspberry-one offices for drivers operating in Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Cape Town.

If you have these requirements, you may continue to complete the following steps to sign up as a driver:

Step 1: Registration

Visit the application portal to start the registration process. You will be asked to enter the following details:

  • Your contact details
  • City (please select the city you would like to operate in here)
  • Driving and/or vehicle documents.

Step 2:  Complete training

  • To register, you will have to complete the online training session.

Step 3: Activation

  • After you have completed the training session, kindly allow a period of 24-48 hours for profile activation
  • You will receive an SMS with your username

  • Fingerprints have to be completed within 48hours after profile activation. The initial fee for vehicle inspections and fingerprint submission needs to be paid upfront (via debit or credit card) to the service centre completing these checks.
