What you need to know

In order to ensure a safe platform, all Uber partners are required to have a standard safety screening. Here's everything you need to know about the process.

How to consent

Getting your safety screening started is easy. Here's what you'll need to do:

  1. Log into your account at
  2. Enter your social security number and agree to consent
  3. Take a picture of your driver's license and upload it to your account

Safety screenings typically take between 5-10 days to complete.

While you wait for your background check to process, make sure you upload your vehicle insurance and registration cards. You will also want to add your banking information so that you can get paid when you start driving.
