UPDATE to driver applications: Please note, while we are all dealing with COVID-19, all driver pool applications have been added to a waitlist. Once things change, we will access our waitlist applications to move them along in the process. There is not a specific timeline for this and we are unable to provide additional information at this time. Thank you for your patience, understanding and interest in the Hitch community.


Completing the Application 

After submitting your driver application on the Hitch app, you will be returned to the home screen. This means that your application has successfully been sent in for review and approval.

Approval Time

Once we receive your application, it can take an average of 5-7 days to review your documents and run a background check. This wait time may vary depending on the validity of your documents and the processing time for the background check.

Approval Notification 

You will receive an email to notify you of your approval once you've been accepted as a driver. This email will provide the final steps to take in order to start driving with Hitch.


You may also receive an email that states you've been moved to the waiting list. Depending on the need for drivers in a certain area, and the number of applications we have -  you may be moved to our waitlist. We do this when we have many driver applications coming in at once -- and we really like to make sure each driver has a much more personalized experience. Stay tuned -- our driver operations will reach out to you when we're ready to bring you on board.
