DoorDash focuses on two components when conducting a background check

Discover what DoorDash looks for in their background checks.

DoorDash is a food delivery service that connects customers with drivers, food merchants, and restaurants. Customers typically place orders at a restaurant and agree to a delivery fee. When a driver accepts the order, the driver takes the order from the restaurant and delivers it to the customer.

DoorDash drivers play a crucial role. For this reason, DoorDash conducts a background check on each applicant before they can become a driver.

DoorDash background check components

During the application process, applicants give their consent to the company running background checks on them. To determine whether an applicant is suitable as a driver, DoorDash inquires about their:

  • Criminal records
  • Driving records

This is because the company needs to make sure the applicant will be a safe and trusted driver.

1. Criminal records

DoorDash searches the National Sex Offender Registry for applicant names. If an applicant’s name appears on the registry within the past seven years, they are disqualified.

They also conduct county criminal searches for the past seven years to see if the applicant has a conviction in the court records. Some offenses that can disqualify an applicant include:

  • Theft
  • Property damage
  • Felonies 
  • Driving under the influence
  • Violent crimes
  • Sexual offenses  

2. Driving records

If the applicant indicates that they will operate using a vehicle, DoorDash will obtain a motor vehicle report. You must have a clean driving record. Some issues on your driving record that may disqualify you include:

  • Driving under the influence 
  • At least four moving violations
  • Drug and alcohol-related driving offenses

DoorDash’s background check is continuous. So, if an applicant passes the first time but a disqualifying record later appears on their criminal or driving record, the driver could be disqualified.

If any disqualifying factor appears on your record, then you might lose your chance of working as a DoorDash driver. However, there is the reality of background check errors that can mistakenly ruin your chances of working with DoorDash.
