3 Requirements Your Car Needs to Drive Lyft!
As you consider becoming a Lyft driver many questions may come to mind. Do I need a specific type of car? Are any vehicles accepted? Does Lyft accept salvage cars? Taxis or other commercial cars? Large vans? Below we will review together the 3 basic requirements your car needs to drive Lyft.
1. Must be a 4 door model that is 2006 or newer
There are no exceptions to this requirement. All four doors must be full sized and free to open individually. The vehicle must have 4 available passenger seats with working seat belts.
2. Your car must be currently insured and have a valid registration
You do not have to be the owner of the car, but the insurance and registration must be up to date. You must be an insured driver on the policy regardless of ownership status of the car.
3. Your car must pass a mechanical and cosmetic inspection
Your car must be in good running condition with no major cosmetic damage. The interior of your car needs to be clean, stain free and fresh smelling. Salvage cars, cars registered for commercial use, and large passenger vans are not accepted by Lyft.
