A driver background check is a comprehensive review of a driver's history and qualifications, typically conducted by employers or ridesharing companies. It includes an examination of a driver's driving record, criminal history, and employment history. It is necessary to ensure the safety of passengers and the public, as well as to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.

A standard driver background check usually includes the following information, details of any traffic violations, accidents, and the status of the driver license, criminal record to identify any prior convictions, particularly those related to DUI, violent crimes, or sexual offenses, work history and may include previous driving experience or references from previous employers.

The depth and scope of driver background checks can vary depending on the company or organization conducting them and local regulations. However, in many cases, driving records are reviewed for the past three to seven years. Criminal history checks may cover a more extensive period, often looking back seven to ten years, but this can vary. Employers may have their own policies regarding the specific timeframes they consider during the screening process.
