Taking breaks and time limits in driver mode

We want you to be as rested as possible out on the road. Feel free to exit driver mode and take a break anytime you'd like.

Time limits

To keep the Lyft community safe, you must take a 6-hour break for every 14 hours you're in driver mode. This rule applies to most regions (see regional requirements below).

Note: Only log into driver mode to drive. Use the Driver Dashboard to check stats like earnings or bonus requirements.

Regional requirements

Certain regions have local regulations that determine how long a driver can stay in driver mode and how long their break must be. Check your city or state's requirements by navigating to your local page here.
