How long will my background check report take?

Most background checks take 3-5 business days to complete, but background checks can take longer depending on a number of factors, such as local government processes or access to county courthouse records.

In the United States, background checks are performed by Uber’s third-party background check providers Checkr, HireRight, and Samba Safety. The background check does not include a credit check. Once the results of your background check are received from our third party vendor, Uber will assess and determine your eligibility.

You may receive a copy of the completed report from the vendor while we are still reviewing the results of your background check. Once we review your report and a decision is made, your background check status will be updated.

Some states may have screening requirements in addition to the initial background check report. These processes can take additional time to complete.
