Every Uber and Lyft driver voluntarily checked by San Antonio Police has passed a background check.
As of late April, 164 drivers have applied for that background check and city verification.
“So far, we’ve had none rejected and no people denied that have applied for the Transportation Network Company applications online,” SAPD SGT Jesse Salame told KTSA News.
If you want to be a driver and want to be verified by the city, start by visiting SanAntonio.gov.
“There’s a TNC drivers verification application that you can fill out online,” Salame said. “You apply for it, you’ll get your information submitted to the fingerprinting database, it’ll run that check through the FBI system.”
And if you get the ‘all clear,’ “you’ll get a photo identification and badge and you can upload your photo (to your driver profile) online and start taking clients,” he said.
