    About new driver promotions

    New driver promos change based on the region and code you use. You can see your bonus amount and ride requirements in the Lyft Driver app.
    Only two rides given to the same passenger count toward your ride requirements. Bonuses for qualifying applicants are paid 1-2 weeks after the promotion ends.
    New drivers will receive a confirmation email with:
    • Bonus amount
    • Ride requirements
    • Deadline info
    To qualify for the bonus, you must meet the ride requirement deadline.

    Using new driver promos

    There are a few things you should know before you begin:
    • New driver promo links will automatically enter the code for you.
    • If you don't enter a code when you start your application, you won't be eligible for the new driver promotion.
    When you start your application, you'll have to enter a valid promo code (you can find one here). You'll enter this in the 'Promo/Referral' field.
    You have 30 days from when you start your application to be approved. Once approved, you have 30 days to complete the specified number of rides to receive your bonus.
