Here are some of the questions you may have:
Will Uber let me become a driver if I have a DUI or other traffic offenses on my record?
Unfortunately, if you are someone who has received a DUI within the last seven years, Uber will not allow you to become a driver on their platform. You should also understand that if you have more than three driving violations in the last three years on your record, you will not be allowed to be an Uber driver. Finally, you are also prohibited from driving with Uber if you have any reckless driving offenses, or if you have received a speeding ticket for traveling 20 miles per hour or more over the speed limit in the last seven years.
What happens if I get a DUI while I am licensed to be an Uber driver?
When someone receives a DUI, on top of the legal repercussions they will face, they will most likely also lose their right to drive for Uber immediately. Furthermore, you should also understand that convictions of nearly any other crime will also result in you losing your Uber license. Uber conducts yearly background checks to ensure that all those who drive on its platform are safe, dependable individuals. Uber will check the National Sex Offender Registry, motor vehicle records, courthouse records, federal records, and more. If you are someone who has been charged with a DUI or any other crime, there is a very good chance that you will lose your right to drive for Uber upon conviction. Our firm is here to help you fight those charges so you can retain your freedom and your livelihood. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
