How to qualify

The difference between Lyft Lux and Lyft Lux Black is which drivers and vehicles are eligible.

Both Lyft Lux and Lux Black rides require drivers to maintain a 4.7 or higher rating. New drivers must give standard Lyft or Shared rides until they achieve a 4.7 rating or higher.

The biggest difference between Lyft Lux, Lux Black, and Lux Black XL is which cars are eligible in each ride type.

To qualify for Lyft Lux:

To qualify for Lux Black or Lux Black XL:

  • Drive in a Lyft city where Lux Black or Lux Black XL is available
  • Drive an approved Lux Black or Lux Black XL vehicle
  • You’ll qualify to receive both Lux Black and Lux Black XL requests if you have a Lux Black-eligible vehicle that comfortably seats 6 or more passengers

Heads up: Using Lyft Lux-, Lux Black-, or Lux Black XL-only may reduce the number of requests you receive.

Drivers who opted to receive Lyft Lux or Lux Black requests only may still see standard Lyft requests where they can earn extra money. Skipping these requests won't affect your acceptance rate.
