I want to drive or deliver in a new city

Many cities and states have unique regulations that require a new background check to switch your city.

  • You may have to re-upload or upload new documents in order to drive in the new city

  • You won’t be able to accept trips or delivery requests on the Uber platform during the process

  • This process can take 7-14 business days and will need to happen any time you want to drive with Uber in a new city.


  • Due to an increased volume of drivers in New York City, any drivers wishing to accept rider trips in NYC will be put on a waitlist.
  • We don’t support temporary city changes, as changes may take up to 14 days to process.
