In brief: By symptoms

Usually after being treated with the proper antibiotics, the symptoms of a urinary tract infection (urinary frequency, urgency, and burning on urination) resolve.
However if one wants to know without a doubt if an infection is gone, one can have a repeat urinalysis and culture done post treatment.
