Issues with Lyft Background Check? We Can Help!
Most Lyft applicants get accepted to be a driver for Lyft, but a small number of drivers are rejected for a variety of reasons. Many of them are rejected due to an issue with their application. I get a few emails a week from Lyft applicants who had issues with Lyft’s background check. Sometimes, there is an issue on Lyft’s servers that doesn’t process the background check correctly. Most of the time, I can get it resolved through my contacts at Lyft.
Over the past few months, I have helped many Lyft applicants fix their background check issues at Lyft and get them approved! I can only help applicants who were never Lyft drivers before. If you have been removed from the Lyft platform, we can’t help with that issue and you will need to email Lyft directly.

Below are the Lyft Background Check requirements and Lyft Driving Record Check requirements:
Lyft Drivers must pass a Background Check and Driving Record Check
A Lyft driver will need to submit to a background check and driving record check. Both of these checks surprise a few Lyft driver applicants, but most pass easily.
Here are the multiple levels in the Lyft background check:
- Social Security trace
- County courthouse records for the last seven years
- Federal courthouse records for the last seven years
- Mult-state criminal records for the past seven years
- DMV motor vehicle records
- National Sex Offender Registry
You will be ineligible to drive on the Lyft platform if, among other things, the background check results reveal convictions for any of the following in the past seven years:
- No sexual offenses
- No violent offenses
- No property damage
- No theft
- No felonies
- No drug-related offenses
Lyft also checks the National Sex Offender Registry and the State Sex offender registry. There is no time limit on this check.
