How to apply as a Grubhub Driver
Jump to section

Grubhub was founded in 2004 and was one of the first online platforms for food delivery services. As the market has continued to expand, Grubhub remains amongst the top and now serves over 19.9 million active users and 115,000 restaurants across over 3,200 cities in all 50 states.

Like many other food delivery platforms, Grubhub is an excellent way to make an additional or side income. We lay out the requirements for Grubhub Drivers and helpful tips when navigating your application.

Eligibility requirements for Grubhub Drivers

In order to deliver food for Grubhub, you’ll need to meet the following requirements:

  • Must be 19 years or older (21 in Chicago or Las Vegas)
  • Must have a valid driver’s license (if using a motor vehicle) - bikers are only required to have a valid state ID
  • Must have at least two years of licensed driving experience
  • Must own a car or motorcycle with proof of valid auto insurance
  • Must be able to pass a comprehensive background check
  • Own a smartphone that is compatible with the Grubhub for Drivers app on either an Apple iOS 11 or Android 5.0 or later operating system
  • You must also have a data plan as part of your phone
  • A valid checking account for direct deposit

Applying to become a Grubhub Driver is simple and easy.

  • First, click the blue button at the top of the page that says "Apply to Drive. "
  • If you're using a mobile device, you can apply by clicking on the three lines in the upper right-hand corner. If you’ve already downloaded the Grubhub for Drivers app to your smartphone, you can also apply directly from there using the link at the bottom of the sign-in screen.
  • To sign up as a Driver, create an account with a username and password. You’ll be asked to enter personal information including:

    • Name
    • Contact information
    • Mailing address
    • The cities or areas you want to deliver in
    • Enter your state, city, and vehicle type. Agree to receive texts and emails from Grubhub, and confirm that you’ve read the Grubhub privacy policy. Make sure that you thoroughly read through all the terms and conditions in the privacy policy before clicking “Next.”
  • Tap “Let’s Begin” to start a short questionnaire that helps determine your eligibility. After you submit the questionnaire, you’ll either move forward or be informed of why you can’t move forward. Typically, if you aren’t approved for the next step, it’s due to a lack of demand in your current area or desired delivery area.

  • If you are able to move forward, simply follow the prompts to set up your driver profile. You’ll need to provide required documents such as your driver’s license, vehicle insurance card, and checking account information. Then, you’ll need to authorize a background check.

  • When you’re approved, you’ll need to finish filling out paperwork and complete your online onboarding, in which you’ll get clear details about how to successfully fulfill delivery requests.

Frequently asked questions

What is the status of my application?

You can view the status of your application from your applicant portal where each applicant receives a unique link allowing them to check their application status in real-time. This link is included in almost every email sent to your email during the application process as well as through an SMS text message when you first apply.

  • Also note that if you are on the waitlist, contacting Grubhub to check your application status will not decrease your wait time or move you up higher in the queue.
  • Availability for Drivers is based and Grubhub engages waitlisted applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. If your waitlist status exceeds 30 days, Grubhub will check in with you to see if you’d like to remain on the waitlist or have your application removed.

Driving and delivering for Grubhub is an excellent option as they tout a quick application process that allows for a uniquely flexible schedule where you keep 100% of your tips. Applicants do not need a resume, to pass an interview portion, or have any prior delivery experience. Another huge advantage is that you can make money entirely on your terms simply by providing contact-free delivery that’s both safe and effective for both you and Grubhub customers.
