What is required to be a driver?

To become a driver with Curri, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Age Requirement: You must be at least 18 years old to apply.

  2. Identification: Possess a valid Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), Social Security Number (SSN), or Employer Identification Number (EIN).

  3. Auto Insurance: Maintain a current auto insurance policy that meets the requirements of your state.

  4. Driver's License: Hold a valid and current U.S. driver's license.

  5. Background Check: Successfully pass Curri's background check.

Please note that a provisional license does not fulfill Curri's driver requirements.

Background Check Process and Requirements

Curri runs checks on both motor vehicle and criminal records when engaging a new driver. The following criteria are likely to disqualify a candidate:

  • Major moving violations (e.g., DUIs)

  • Felonies

  • Multiple moving violations (e.g., many speeding tickets)

  • Distracted driving/cell phone violations

The average turnaround time for Criminal and Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) checks to clear is typically 48 hours or less, although it may extend beyond 48 hours in some cases due to various factors.

The background check process adheres to a combination of legal requirements and company policies, ensuring compliance with relevant laws and regulations governing delivery network drivers, as well as internal safety standards.

Please be aware that applicable laws governing background check criteria vary significantly by state. As a result, individuals may be disqualified based on different criminal offenses and driving histories depending on their location.
