This page provides information about vehicle, driver, and document requirements, state regulations, insurance coverage, and city-specific requirements, needed to drive with Lyft in the state of Nebraska.
In select cities, you can rent a car through Express Drive with standard insurance included. Rental vehicles must be rented through the Express Drive program to be approved for use on the Lyft platform.
Drivers are required to display the Lyft emblem while in driver mode. The Lyft emblem is Lyft’s official trade dress. It helps passengers and law enforcement identify your vehicle.
The Lyft emblem should be displayed in the lower corner of your windshield on the passenger side every time you enter driver mode. Make sure to remove the emblem when you are not in driver mode.
If you’ve just been approved to drive, you should receive your Lyft emblem shortly. If you didn't get one or need a new one, order one in your Lyft Driver app or Dashboard. While waiting for it to arrive, you may print a temporary emblem.
Lyft and Nebraska regulations state that drivers may not spend more than 12 hours in driver mode within a day. After that, drivers must take a break for a minimum of 6 consecutive hours. See Lyft's mandatory break and time limits for more information.
If your vehicle has a lien, you must submit a lienholder notification to the lienholder using this form. Submit the form by certified mail to the lienholder at least seven days before providing your first ride. Save the certified mail return receipt and send it, along with a copy of the completed form for the Nebraska Public Service Commission, to 1200 N Street, Ste. 300, Lincoln, NE 68508 or P.O. Box 94927, Lincoln, NE 68509-4229.
In many personal automobile insurance policies, the driver’s policy does not provide coverage for damage to the vehicle used by the driver, uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, and other first-party claims from the moment the driver logs on to the transportation network company’s online-enabled application or platform to the moment the driver logs off the transportation network company’s online-enabled application or platform. You should contact your insurer to determine coverage.
Drivers are required to pass a vehicle inspection before being approved to drive. Approved drivers will need an updated vehicle inspection annually:
When visiting an approved inspection location, use this form. Inspection cost varies depending on the area and facility. Once completed, upload your inspection form to the Lyft Driver app. Keep a current inspection form in your vehicle at all times while in driver mode.
To upload your inspection form:
1. Open the menu.
2. Tap on 'Account.'
3. Tap 'Documents.'
Inspections are valid until the marked expiration date. If no expiration date is marked, Lyft will require a new inspection to be done one year after the inspection date.
If you're already a driver in a different state, and you're moving to Nebraska, send us a message with the following info:

* If you were already required to upload a vehicle inspection form and vehicle registration when you became a driver, you don't need to send them in again. If you do need a vehicle inspection, follow the annual inspection instructions above.
