How long does it take?

I signed up to be a Uber driver 5 days ago and I haven't got a text or an email yet, is that normal?

It takes an average of 20 days to be signed on as a driver. Some people report knowing in as little as 10 days but the average seems to be 2 to 3 weeks.

After you’ve finished your application online, you should be able to start driving within a week. In rare cases the background check can take up to two weeks.

Once you’re activated (Uber will send you an e-mail), you are good to go! You just log into the Uber driver app and click “Go Online”.

A few things to keep in mind after applying… The approval process may take some time. If you are not approved, find out the reason. While you wait, get familiar with the driver app and watch the tutorial videos supplied.

The process from submitting my application to being able to get out on the road took 2 weeks. If they don't update you after I'd say 5 days, inquire about it. Sometimes things get overlooked.
