Medical Forms:

After an initial partner screening (criminal background, etc), partners can receive a medical check at Uber’s Denver Greenlight Center.

Medical check hours are: 9.00 AM – 5 PM Mon – Fri (no appointments – checks are administered on a first-come first-served basis).

Prior to being eligible for a medical exam, prospective drivers must demonstrate that they have successfully received notice (via email) from Checkr (Uber’s third-party screening and background-check supplier), indicating that they have passed the mandatory screening.

A hold of $50 will be taken out of a prospective driver’s payment stub for the medical exam.

If they wish, new drivers can instead bring a TNC Driver – Medical Certification Packet to a certified medical professional. Acceptable medical professionals include: physician assistant; clinical nurse specialist (supervised by a licensed physician); nurse practitioner; doctor of osteopathy; or a doctor of medicine.
