The background thing happened to me in September 2018. Difference with my situation was the app showed me as online, waiting for trips. I knew something was wrong after three hours and no pings. Checked the rider app, and I am not showing. Called the awesome support line and after hours was finally told it was the background check.

What happened is I didn't drive for months prior to September 2018, so I ignored the messages that I needed to opt in and consent to a background check. Uber without warning took me offline once I started driving again. Took a week to get back on, I don't have anything that would fail the CORI.

Seems like you do have violations that would cause you to fail, which is your fault, not Ubers. They run a check once a year AT LEAST. 3 violations in one year and you are deactivated.
It’s not 3 violations in one year it’s 2 violations, and one violation was dismissed

Might be jinxing myself here but after over 3 years and 8500 trips, I've had zero tickets. 170,000 miles in and around Chicago.
My tickets happened before I even started driving with Uber, they were on my dmv record when they signed me up a year ago so I don’t understand why they are flagging them now

@@@@ you dude, why so much hate, Uber has really messed me up the last week over nothing basically. You probably don’t know what it’s like to support a family and feel the weight of that. I lost my only job. You are trying to say that if you got fired you wouldn’t be mad or salty at your former employer.

Do three violations come up on your background check?

My Uber Story

... I have 3 infraction or tickets whatever you want to call them nothing crazy, speeding ticket and one time I didn’t have my insurance card on me but I still had insurance at the time and a parking ticket, these things have happened in the last 2-3 years. They have all been payed for and taken care of no outstanding bills or things I need to go to court for.

... So here is where it all gets fishy,
You're right. This is where it all gets fishy because this may be your Uber story, but cannot possibly be your story. First, parking tickets won't appear on a DMV abstract, nor would one appear anywhere on a background check. Second, practically any judge will dismiss a violation for failure to produce valid proof of insurance if there was no lapse in insurance. And lastly, no determination of the results of a background check will ever come from whether or not you owe money to the courts.

Personally, I think you're being purposely selective in your transparency and I'm betting there's a lot that you're not telling because there's no way you're deactivated based solely on the information you've provided. No way.

But, of course, it's all Uber's fault.

My Uber Story

So I have been driving with Uber for almost a year now, in which time my soul goal has been to try to hit the 3000 rides with them so I can get my tuition payed for by Uber to the ASU online college. The reason I drive for Uber is so I can support my wife and 3 year old daughter. But here is a story how Uber has really screwed me over and hasn’t done anything or care about it. October 2nd, 2019 I was on my way to drop my daughter off with my wife so I could head out to work for Uber however I noticed my Uber account had been put on hold due to some unknown reason, all it said was to contact “Uber Support”, which if any of you have ever contacted Uber Support you will know how unhelpful they really are, I won’t go into that right now though. I called Uber Support and they told me my account was on hold due to the background check being run and should be up and running in 7-15 days, that was not acceptable because I have many bill to pay and I have to be able to make money, I mean it would be like if another company all the sudden just told someone not to come in to work for 7-15 days because of some reason but they weren’t fired or let go they just didn’t get to come to work for a week or 2 without pay. Now a week earlier on September 23rd, 2019 I went and rented car car with the Hertz/Uber team up they have. I drove 1 week with the vehicle which was nice to be able to not have to put so many miles on my personal vehicle and I liked the fact that if I hit a certain amount of rides Uber would help pay for that vehicle. However, the second week Uber shut off my account without warning because they are running the background check. Now I’m gonna talk about what is on my background check, I have 3 infraction or tickets whatever you want to call them nothing crazy, speeding ticket and one time I didn’t have my insurance card on me but I still had insurance at the time and a parking ticket, these things have happened in the last 2-3 years. They have all been payed for and taken care of no outstanding bills or things I need to go to court for. So here is where it all gets fishy, Uber told me to go to a court and get documentation for proof that all this has been taken care of and I still don’t owe money, CheckR the background company Uber has told me that the background check was completed and was fine and it was up to Uber if they wanted to hire me again, so I went back to Uber with the correct documents that showed that this was all taken care of and they told me that the background company had needed this to see that it was clear and I could start driving again. So I sent the documents to CheckR and gave them a call to follow up with them and they said the only thing I could do to clear my background check was to call a local DMV and ask them to remove the infractions from my driving record and I’d be good to go. So already Uber and CheckR are not adding up together for what I should do so I can start making money again to support my family. For those of you who don’t know this infractions or tickets stay on your driving record for 5 years and the DMV cants remove them before hand. So does any of this add up? Oh, and also I have 2,538 trip completed over 9 months with an Uber rating of 4.92 and I’m a diamond member I consider it a good rating,I am almost to the 3000 mark I believe Uber doesn’t want to pay for my tuition so they are finding a reason to shut down my account. Have any of you had anything like this happen?
You’re gonna have to drive lyft for a while to support your family, until you get your Uber account straight.

Next look for a career job, you and your family deserve that.

Lastly you’re gonna have to loosen your sphincter a little more if you wanna drive for Uber.


Believe me, this is only the tip ??

3 violations in three years.

From what I have been told, though, parking tickets don't count toward the 3 in 3. Only moving violations. I'm not sure if not having your insurance card on you would be considered a moving violation, provided that you had valid insurance at the time and just didn't have the card on you. So that is possibly 1 in 3, or worst case, 2 in 3 (assuming that what I have been told about parking tickets is correct).
For the OP: I do think this is you or only angle. If the no insurance card was written up but you had valid insurance they CAN take that off your record. SHOULD.

Goober in no way screwed you. You did it to yourself.

I am currently on Goober timeout for my Checker BG check. Yip I pulled a third speeding ticket in three years this last spring down in Oregon and Checker ran my BG. I did that not Goober

Stop blaming everyone else for your mistakes and you will find you have a lot more control in your own life!

Go deliver for amazon, or pizza, or UPS or anyone.


I am still on Gryft till they pull my check again. MY first ticket was Feb of 17, so hopefully it doesn't pull on a check after. Seattle has the strictest requirements in the states from what I understand.

I joined this site cuz I thought it was where you could get help and people had similar experience but all it is is where people bash you call you names and a liar and have absolutely no good help.
There are people that are willing to provide constructive advise, but you need to do what I told you to do initially.

It indicates that the person that responded is not interested in being helpful in any way and just wants to mock your writing style. You will encounter lots of these people. Just ignore them and move on. They are not even worth a snarky response.
Right now, you are completely focusing on the people that just want to be arrogant jerks. That doesn't get you anywhere. Also, bear in mind that if you present a story that seems implausible or fabricated, your story will be picked apart even by those that are willing to provide constructive advise.

The way I see it, there are three possibilities right now:

1. You are only telling part of the story, and you are leaving out the part that explains why Uber has put your account on hold. If that is the case, then there is nothing anybody can do to help you.

2. There is an error in the system somewhere (either at Uber or in the background check), and your account was put on hold in error. If this is the case, you might be able to get it corrected and you might not. Keep in mind that Uber has no shortage or drivers and individual drivers don't matter in the slightest to them, so they will have very little motivation to correct this issue for you. One less driver on the road is inconsequential to them.

3. This is a deliberate action on Uber's part to prevent you from reaching 3,000 rides and receiving the benefits associated with that. If that is the case, then there is really nothing you can do. Per the contract that you agreed to with Uber before you started driving, Uber can terminate the contract at any time for any or no reason. They don't have to have a valid reason (or any reason at all) to drop you as a driver.
