What is the screening process?

All drivers using the Uber app must pass a background check before they can accept trips on Uber's platform. Background checks are conducted by Checkr, Uber's third-party background check provider.

Your consent is required before we can initiate a background check, then after consenting to a check, you'll need to provide your:
- Social Security Number
- Valid U.S. Driver's License

Background checks are free of charge and there is no credit check involved.
After you receive notice that your background check has started, please allow 7-15 business days for it to be completed. Please note that while you may have received a copy of your completed report from Checkr, Uber may require additional time to review your results.
