Driver screening

Everyone who drives with Uber is screened before their first trip. In addition, Uber reruns these driver screenings* every year and uses technology to look for issues in between. It’s part of our commitment to help keep you safe when you request a ride with Uber.

The information on this page only applies to drivers using Uber in the 50 US states and Washington, DC.

*Annual driving history reruns do not apply in NYC. Annual screening processes are dependent on open, operational courthouses. Due to COVID-19, this may not be the case and recurring checks may be postponed.
