So you've ordered an Uber or a Lyft and are standing there waiting. All you know about the driver is the name, license plate number, and the rating that is provided by Uber or Lyft users. When you order the car, your location is sent to the driver, and once the driver confirms the ride, you also see their location. It usually takes 5–10 minutes before the driver gets to you.
While waiting, you can tap the bar with the driver's name, vehicle, and license plate information to read some reviews. But have you ever thought that many people are afraid of posting bad reviews of the drivers? That's mostly because the driver would know who the passenger was. So in most cases, even if the customer wanted to put a 0–3 rating, they might put a 3–5. Those drivers may also request support from Uber or Lyft to adjust, modify, or remove those reviews. If that happens, the available reviews are not correct, and your driver might not live up to the positive reviews they've received.
FindByPlate.com is your ultimate source to check your Uber or Lyft driver. All you need is their license plate number and state. Do a search and see if other people left good or bad reviews on the driver. You can do this while the car is on its way to you, so you will know what to expect.
Good or bad, you always want to leave some feedback to the driver who picked you up. It's very easy to do it in your Uber or Lyft app, but if you were to post a bad review there, your driver would know who did it, and they might leave a bad review for you. So it makes sense to make your reviews anonymous. You can use FindByPlate.com's search engine to find the car, review the driver, post photos and videos if you have them, and help others understand who they are dealing with.
Uber and Lyft do background checks on all of their drivers. This includes a motor vehicle review as well as a criminal background check. For example, no one would want a driver who is a registered sex offender or a person prone to violence in the past.
Another problem is that the driver who’s picking you up is often not the same person on file with Uber or Lyft. There are many illegal drivers who work under someone else’s identity, whether it's stolen or agreed upon. So it's very important to check and report your driver through third-party sites like FindByPlate.com
