Apply to Drive
If you're applying to become a driver in Nebraska, check out the application steps.
Drivers are encouraged to display the Lyft emblem while in driver mode. Refer to the image above for where to place your Lyft emblem.
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, place an order in your Dashboard. While waiting for it to arrive, you may print a temporary emblem.
Upload your vehicle registration
Drivers in Nebraska are required to upload a copy of their vehicle registration. Temporary vehicle registration is acceptable, but be sure to upload your permanent copy when you receive it.
To prevent delays, make sure your vehicle registration meets the following criteria:
- Current (not expired)
- Match the vehicle on file with Lyft
- Images and text clearly legible in the photo
- All four corners visible in the photo
You are an approved driver, your ride is decked out with all the right things in all the right places, and you’re no stranger to the ins and outs of driving with Lyft.
- Set your vehicle up correctly every time you drive.
- Follow all airport rules.
- Do not accept street hails.
- Do not accept cash for rides.
- Do not wait in taxi lines.
- If you run into any issues on the road, let us know.
In addition to Lyft's mandatory break requirement, Nebraska regulations require that drivers spend no more than 12 hours in driver mode within a 24-hour period.
- Review Lyft's insurance policy here.
- View your insurance in the app: Settings > Car > Lyft insurance.
Lienholder Disclosure Requirement:
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 on the Lyft platform are required to maintain current documents (license, registration, insurance). Always update your documents via the Dashboard when they expire.
Drivers in Nebraska must get an annual vehicle inspection. Print this form and bring it to one of the mechanics listed in the links below. Please note, Lyft does not cover the cost of this inspection.
Please upload a photo of your completed inspection form in the Dashboard.
If you're already a driver in a different state, and you're moving to Nebraska, send us a message with the following info:
- The date you're moving
- Your new shipping address
- A clear photo of your vehicle registration*
- A clear photo of your completed vehicle inspection form**
*If you were already required to upload your vehicle registration when you became a driver, you do not need to send it in again.
*If you were already required to upload a 19-point vehicle inspection form when you became a driver, you do not need to send one in again. If you do need a vehicle inspection, follow the Annual Inspection instructions above.
