Getting an Uber car inspection shouldn’t take long at all. Just find the closest Uber car inspection location facility and make your way there. No appointment is needed to get inspected and the inspection comes at no cost to you.
To find a Uber inspection location simply google, Uber inspection and then the name of city you wish to get your car inspected in. For example google: Uber Inspection San Francisco. Here is a link to all Bay Area Uber inspection locations.
After you pass your inspection, the uber office at the inspection location should give you your Uber emblems and other materials to get you on your way to start driving for cash.
This is the longest part of the process. Background checks can take as little as three days but we have heard stories of them taking multiple weeks. Typically, your background check should be completed in a week’s time.
Your background check will not pass if any of the following has occurred in the past 7 years:
- No criminal record
- No history of reckless driving
- No DUI or drug related offenses
- No fatal accidents
While you wait, start to set up your car. Visit our shop page for great items to make your rideshare driving more comfortable and profitable.
