Can I provide a recent background check report to Uber instead of Uber running a new one?

No. If you received a background check report for another company, Uber must still verify that you meet all local requirements and Uber's own internal safety standards. Uber's safety standards may differ from other companies' standards and can be above local regulatory requirements. We must receive all background check reports directly from Checkr, our third-party background check provider.

Uber requires a completed background check before you take your first trip. In addition, Uber will rerun your background check periodically. You may also be enrolled in a new offense notification program to ensure that you continue to meet safety standards while active on the Uber platform.
