All you need to know about writing your own DriveTribe article

Get your pistons ready: anyone can write on DriveTribe!

2y ago

Having an insatiable desire to say how much you love your 2004 Honda Civic or hate Mazda Miatas? You're in the right place!

Publishing your wildest ideas is easy here on DriveTribe. Just head to a computer, log in to your account and go to, our very own creator's paradise. There, you'll find all the tools you need to create articles, video posts, quizzes, polls, and much more.

Once you've got your content waxed, polished, and rolling on DriveTribe's streets, one of our Ambassadors will take it for a spin. If they think that your content is sparkling and show-ready, they will promote it to one of our section verticals. If your post is the best in the world, one of our Community Editors will promote it to the homepage. Getting picked as a DTPick is the highest honour and will make you instantly famous. Ask James May.

There are many things you can do to get a better chance at being promoted, such as:

- Don't be a hater and, please, follow our user guidelines and terms of use;

- Write descriptive and catchy headlines;

- Check your grammar (we can tell if you donut);

- Use great copyright-free images and correctly attribute the ones you are authorized to use;

- Pick a Tribe that is appropriate for your content;

- Send us candy;

- Do your research and write content with your own words.

We are very happy to have you here!

If you have any questions on the road to making DriveTribe your new home, please e-mail us at or contact one of the Community Managers in your DM inbox.

    • Feel free to reach out any of our ambassadors if you need feedback on your articles. They are great people that love to help and to be a part of this community. It sounds cheesy, but it’s 100% true. We are a bunch of lovely car weirdos.

  • If our articles are well received, is there a opportunity to become a contributing writer to DT?

    • Much better than that, actually!

      We have a program called Moneybox that nurtures all the great talent we have here on DriveTribe. You can read more about it here:...
