Long Sign Up Time?


New Member
G'day everyone,

I signed up to be a driver over a month ago and am starting to get impatient. Is this a normal time period? I've been getting "Hang tight - we're running your background checks" emails for a month now.

Would contacting Uber or visiting them in person help or do I just need to suck it up and keep waiting?

Suck it up. Uber don't care about anyone. They 39,999 other ants in Victoria to spray with ant killer before they get to you.

Visiting in person would definitely help. Your application is probably collecting virtual dust on Uber servers. If you go there they should be able to complete the application same day.

At least that was my experience. They didn't touch my application till I showed up.
