Can You Be an Uber Driver with a DUI?

Posted on in DUI/OWI

Untitled-design-11.jpgUber is a ride-sharing company that is used daily by individuals who need transportation to work, the airport, social events, or just about anywhere. If you are in need of a ride, you can download the Uber app, request a vehicle to come to your location, and pay for your ride through the app with a debit or credit card. Since its inception in 2009, Uber has become the convenient and less expensive alternative to taxis. 

Thousands of individuals make a living driving for Uber. Whether you drive for Uber full-time or on an occasional basis whenever you are in need of some extra money, you will find that it is a flexible job that gives you the opportunity to make as much or as little money as you would like.

If you have been arrested for a DUI, you may be wondering whether you will be able to land a job driving for Uber. To answer this question, let’s take a closer look at the requirements for Uber drivers. 

Uber Driver Requirements

If you’re interested in driving for Uber, you must be at least 21 years of age and pass a screening process which consists of a criminal background check, a check into the sex offender registry, and a review of your driving record. 

If Uber finds that you have been convicted of a DUI within the last seven years, you will not qualify to become an Uber driver. However, if you were not convicted, and your DUI case was dismissed or you are still it, you have a better chance of qualifying. Keep in mind that in addition to a DUI conviction,  a hit and run, reckless driving, driving without insurance, or a fatal accident may disqualify you from driving for Uber.

In the event that you do pass the Uber screening process, you must have valid license plates in Wisconsin as well as a vehicle with a model year of 2000 or newer, and seating for at least four passengers. Additionally, you will need to pass a comprehensive safety inspection.
