Does Uber Run a Background Check on Drivers Every Year?

  1. is it normal for two background checks in less than a month ? no tickets etc I keep getting emails checked status nothing was found do I need to upload something not sure what's going on thank you if you could help.

  2. I do have Lyft as a backup. Is there an amount of time I need to drive with them to remain active? I'd hate to need them and have them not be there… I drive Uber only, so far, but am a pretty new driver active on both platforms (in San Diego).

  3. same goes with car documents (registrations). I procrastinated and paid online until the last minute then uploaded the confirmation page from dmv. uber won't accept it and I have to wait until I recieve actual registration from the mail. uber won't even accept any receipt or letter from dmv. i got deactivated for 3 weeks. lesson hard learned.
