6. PLEASE ADVISE: Uber does not run a credit check
**NOTE** Starting November 2016, Uber now allows SOME non-violent felons to become drivers.
**If it has been over 10 business days since beginning your Background Check, contact Checkr.**
The background check usually takes 3 to 10 business days to complete. If your account status doesn’t change to “Active” after that period, contact Checkr.
*Uber re-runs your background check yearly, or if requirements happen to change*

In the end, the only way to truly know whether you’ll pass or not is to sign up to drive for Uber. It’s free, and it’s NOT like getting a credit check. There is no penalty for consenting.
