After my ride early Friday morning around 3am, my driver app automatically switches to offline. I then try to turn it back on, and it says your account is currently not active. I then get a message asking for my social and d.o.b. stating they will conducting a backround check on me.

I called Uber, and they said they need to do another backround check on me and could take 7-10 business days to complete. According to them, my last back round check was on January 15th of this year, so why another one just less than 6 months later...? Nothing has changed; no tickets or criminal activities since then, or even since when I first started for that matter. However, I do have a child support order, but I am currently making my payments. Has this random backround check happened to anyone else before, or has Uber changed their policy on how far their backround checks go..??

Happened to me, and was a pain in the ass because I just changed my address with dmv and the new license showed and issue date of less than a year. The old license they hit with the void punch over the date. It was ridiculous and took 2 weeks

I have never heard of a Random Backround Checks.We all know that if you get hurt on the job your employer can send you to a DR for drug test. Last year I used to get Random face ID check once a month before they let me go online and start accepting rides and stuff. I wish you could get an employment ins while you wait on background check ...Good luck to you.
