Lyft background check taking forever


So I am trying to run Uber and Lyft at the same time because unfortunately I have to do this full time until I can find something permanent with a steady income.

I did everything I was supposed to do for Lyft and all the documents were approved... but my background check is still processing and it’s already been 3 or 4 days. Says it could take up to 2 weeks “due to factors that are beyond Lyfts control.”

Anyone else ever had a similar experience when signing up for Lyft?

Just drive for Uber until the Lyft background check comes back. It takes more than 3-4 days if you are not in the background check company database already.
