Under Illinois law, Uber must conduct background checks of their drivers. Uber cannot employ a driver who (1) has had more than 3 moving violations in the prior three-year period, or one major violation in the prior three-year period including attempting to evade the police, reckless driving, or driving on a suspended or revoked license; (2) has been convicted, within the past 7 years, of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fraud, sexual offenses, use of a motor vehicle to commit a felony, a crime involving property damage, or theft, acts of violence, or acts of terror; (3) is a match in the National Sex Offenders Registry database; (4) does not possess a valid driver’s license; (5) does not possess proof of registration for the motor vehicle used to provide TNC services; (6) does not possess proof of automobile liability insurance for the motor vehicle used to provide TNC services; or (7) is under 19 years of age.
