Lyft insurance protection

Lyft provides additional insurance policies, at no cost to the driver. We worked with leading insurance carriers to provide various coverages including: commercial auto liability insurance up to $1M per occurrence, contingent comprehensive and collision insurance for drivers who carry comprehensive and collision coverage on their personal auto policy, and coverage for bodily injury caused by uninsured/underinsured motorists when you are engaged in a ride. If you already carry commercial insurance or personal coverage providing specific coverage for ridesharing, Lyft’s policy will continue to be excess to your insurance coverage. Please note, the above coverage may be modified to comply with local regulations or state laws. Our policy is available in all states in the U.S., except for those rides originating in New York City with a TLC (Taxi and Limousine Commission) driver.



Drivers rate passengers after each ride, so you’ve always got a say. We also require passengers to provide valid credit card information for identity verification purposes.

I already have a job, so can I just drive a few hours in my off-time?

Absolutely.  You choose when you drive.  Some drivers make more than $800 just driving Friday nights and weekends.

Drivers get paid for every trip on a per minute and mile basis.  Money is deposited into your account each week automatically, or you can cash out instantly with Express Pay.

Is Lyft safe?

Our community's safety is our top priority.  We run extensive background checks on drivers, provide up to $1M commercial automobile liability policy, and designed numerous safety features into our app.  Passengers must provide a valid credit card and phone number for identity verification purposes.  Drivers and passengers also rate each other at the end of a ride, so that we're always upholding our high community standards.

You must be at least 21 and own an iPhone or Android phone.  As part of our approval process, you'll undergo a DMV check, plus a national and county background check.  This will require a Social Security number, in addition to an in-state driver's license that is at least a year old.

Your car needs to have four external door handles and at least five total seat belts.  You must be a covered party on your car's in-state insurance, and have in-state license plates.  We'll confirm all of this during your 19-point vehicle inspection.  Cars have Lyft age requirements too, which can vary by state.
