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.
What are Lyft’s requirements?
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. Learn more about our background check standards on our Safety page, and our comprehensive driver requirements in the Help Center. Go to Lyft.com or we'll help you through the process at: 202-910-4570.
If you don't have a car we have a program to get you into a car. Or, if like most, if you use your own car, 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. See your state-specific requirements If you're in the DMV that requirement is ten (10) years or newer. If your car is older, we can put you in a car and make it free if you'll call us inquiring about the details.
