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 full, uninterrupted 6-hour break for every 14 hours you're in driver mode. These 14 hours in driver mode do not have to be consecutive.

Once you have been in driver mode for 14 hours, our system will prevent you from going online until you have taken this mandatory 6-hour break.

This rule applies to most regions.

Certain regions have local regulations that determine how long a driver can stay in driver mode and how long their break must be. See requirements in your area by selecting your city or state here.

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