His TikToks have gained nearly 200,000 views from many people curious about how much money the average Uber driver can make at home.
Mr Double said he enjoys the job because it allows him to be his own boss and doesn’t require any qualifications.
Many stressed that part of his weekly salary should be spent on taxes and fuel, for which the driver said he is setting aside around 15 to 30 percent.

On a week of earnings of $ 1,888, the 22-year-old spent just over $ 250 on gasoline.
“I have a lot of tax write-offs, so I’m bringing the majority home,” he said.
“Fuel is tax deductible and you can also claim GST credits. “
Mr Callan said another piece of advice was to start driving around 4 a.m., where there weren’t many other drivers, and stick to rush hour.
