Driving History Requirements

Last updated: 7 Dec 2015

If you applied to partner with Uber and recently had a new license issued, we will need a driver’s license that you’ve held for at least one year (three years if you are 21 or 22) to successfully complete your background check. At this point we are not concerned with the cleanliness of your driving record; we only need proof of your licensing history.

GET ON THE ROAD

To retrieve proof of your licensing history, complete these two simple steps:

  • Get your licensing history. Note: if you need to prove 1 or 3 years licensing history please contact the DMV from the state in which you were licensed 1 or 3 years ago. See the table below for details on how to retrieve it — a “Yes” in a column indicates what documentation is sufficient to provide licensing history in each state. This may be as simple as sending a photo of your old license!
  • Send your licensing history to ubersupport@checkr.com. Please include your name, email, and telephone number in the body of the email.

That’s it! Once you provide sufficient licensing history your background check will begin and you’ll receive periodic updates on your progress. If you submit licensing history and do not hear from Uber operations within three business days please email us at support@uber.com and we’ll help you out!
