I was trying to find out this information myself but I was not able to find a clear response yet. I was looking for Uber myself. Which one are you referring to? Uber or Lyft? And are you in the US? I think it is different depending on where you are located.

For both Uber and Lyft:

You'll get and e-mail when the account is activated. Usually the verification of your documents takes 48 to 72 hours. If you have not completed all the tasks on your profile, it won't be submitted so be sure to do so. The entire process takes 10 to 14 days on average but it can take up to 30 days.

I think the average is one week but with everything that has been going on, expect it to be a while longer. I know a lot of people who started working with Uber or Lyft because they were out of work or laid off entirely fromt the Covid-19 outbreak.

Mine was completed and I was approved to drive in 2 weeks. The entire process took 2 weeks though, not just the e-mail confirmation.

I found lyft to take longer than uber but having driven for both, I do prefer lyft. The process is easier and while it did take longer, I have felt I am earning more with them.
