Police check delay.

I signed up to drive for Uber around 5 weeks ago and I'm still waiting on my police check.
I keep asking why it is taking so long and I keep getting the same response saying
"Sometimes police checks get flagged because of a similar name or address"
Has anyone else had this delay??
Thanks

Mine took weeks with the same generic response. Turns out they HAD NOT even submitted the check.

Got the check completed 3 days after it finally was submitted. Keep pestering Uber about it. You will get an email from whoever does the checks the day after its submitted.

Mine took a while, but I'm aware of why extra checks might have been required on mine. Passed while flying colours.

But 5 week is a LONG time. Drop by the office and see why.

We have 11000 drivers on the books.
6 months ago 6500
Uber then cut the rates
Increased the radius
Killed the surge
Screwed the drivers out of eats guarantees
You want to drive now?
Uber also increased the commission to 25%.

There are more drivers but much more riders.

If you know when to go and when to plot you still make decent money as part time job

It's good money especially if you don't put some for tax day.

Then suddenly you need to pay tax, fix your car or sell it and you realize how much your really made...

The GST is a joke every other sub contractor only pays GST if you make over 75k.
The ATO way of taxing Uber.

GST is 1/11 so you pay GST on what the passenger paid including the 25 percent.
The good news is the uber fees are tax deduction.
