The Guru Take
Can vary greatly. Few days to several weeks
It is case-by-case, and it significantly varies from person to person. Some drivers claim their background check was cleared in 2 days, and in some cases, 7~ weeks. We seem to hear that it generally takes about 2 weeks.
Apparently, the speed depends on:
- The volume of driver application (i.e. how busy Uber is in certain locations)
- Complexity of the background check which can differ from state to state.
- Individual's background, where there are additional reviews necessary, such as criminal record, etc.
