Getting to become a Menulog delivery driver does have its own set of requirements so you will need to prepare for them before applying.

First, you need to have a vehicle that you will be using to deliver all of the food from the restaurants. The company will only accept vehicle models that are quite recent but they do provide a leeway when it comes to the vehicle that you have and it must be registered as well. 

They even allow vehicles from the year 1990 as long as it is still operational and safe to drive but having the most recent model is much appreciated.

Obtain Adequate Insurance

The company also requires you and your vehicle to have CTP insurance or compulsory third-party insurance. CTP insurance will provide you with compensation in case of injuries and accidents.

All states in Australia will require that your vehicle have insurance and you won’t be able to drive a vehicle without one. 

Driver Requirements

Now that you have a registered vehicle, it is time to apply as a Menulog driver. You should be 18 years old and above on the date of your application as a Menulog driver. Drivers must also have an open license so that everything is well within the laws and regulations in Australia.

Then, you will be required to purchase a commercial-grade thermal bag from Menulog but you can always use your own if you have one. The thermal bag is where you will be keeping the food so it remains warm or cold and unaffected by the weather outside of the thermal bag.

The best part about being a Menulog driver is that you get to keep all the money that you earn. 

The company will not take any commission from the fees as the app itself will provide you with the delivery fee based on a combination of the distance traveled and the driving time. Everything that you earn from the app will be all yours.

Signing Up

Now that you have all that information, it is time that you sign up for an account. You should already have the required documents, like your driving license, a copy of your insurance, and registration prepared to make the registration process much quicker.
