Background Check

Modified on Thu, 28 Oct 2021 at 01:37 PM

We take the security and privacy of the personal information we collect seriously. We use industry-standard security practices, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL), and encryption of data in transit, to help protect your information.

Our background check will disqualify drivers with a DWI / DUI within 7 years and any violent crimes. Please note traffic fines will not have an effect on your background check.

The background check includes a Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) review as well as a criminal background check. There is no credit check involved.

The evaluation of background checks varies from city to city and is based on a combination of criteria specified in local laws and regulations governing delivery drivers, as well as Skipcart's internal safety standards. Applicable laws specifying the criteria Skipcart must follow when reviewing background check results vary considerably by state, so individuals might be disqualified for criminal offenses and driving history not indicated here.

Background checks are performed by Checkr, Inc., a third-party background check provider that is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners.


To make deliveries with Skipcart you must hold a valid U.S. driver's license and have a minimum of one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. Two years of U.S. driving experience is required to be a delivery driver if you are under 23 years old.

Your driver's license must be active and free of disqualifying restrictions. Major driving violations or a recent history of multiple minor driving violations, including but not limited to no-fault accidents, may result in disqualification.


Subject to and in accordance with state and local law, some types of criminal convictions such as murder, sexual assault, terrorism-related offenses, and other serious criminal convictions will result in disqualification if they occurred at any time in your lifetime.

Convictions for felonies, violent crimes, sexual offenses, and registered sex offender status, among other types of criminal records, are also disqualifying. Pending charges for those categories of crimes are also disqualifying, unless and until such charges are resolved in your favor.

Most background checks take 3-5 business days to complete but can take longer depending on a number of factors such as county courthouse processes.

Background checks are performed by a third-party background check provider, Checkr. Please note that Checkr provides reports as they are completed, so while you may have received a completed report from Checkr, the report may still be in progress or under review by Skipcart. Once Skipcart receives your completed background check from Checkr, we will use the results to make our decision and inform you of the decision via email.

You can track your background check status by logging into Checkr's applicant portal using the link below.


If you're having trouble accessing the Checkr portal consider:

1. Checking that you are using the same email address and phone number that you used when you first signed up and your background check began processing.

2. Checking that the information is free of any typos

If you continue to have trouble logging in, submit a request to Checkr using the link below.
