My background check is taking longer than expected

Background checks usually take 3-5 business days, but can be delayed for a variety of reasons. Vendors need to verify the information with county courthouses to complete your background check report and provide Uber with the results. Occasionally, delays happen due to local government processes. Unfortunately, we can’t expedite this process.

Keep an eye out for emails from our vendors. Background checks sometimes stall because the vendor needs more information from you. Some states also have extra screening requirements, which take more time.
