    Driver requirements
    Document requirements
    Emblem requirements
    Drivers are required to display the Lyft emblem while in driver mode. The Lyft emblem is Lyft’s official trade dress. It helps passengers and law enforcement identify your vehicle.
    The Lyft emblem should be displayed in the lower corner of your windshield on the passenger side every time you enter driver mode. Make sure to remove the emblem when you are not in driver mode.
    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, order one in your Dashboard. While waiting for it to arrive, you may print a temporary emblem.

    Hourly driver mode limits
    Lyft and Nebraska regulations state that drivers may not spend more than 12 hours in driver mode within a day. After that, drivers must take a break for a minimum of 6 consecutive hours. See Lyft's mandatory break and time limits for more information.
    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.
    Insurance Disclosures
    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.
    Annual vehicle inspection
    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. Then upload a photo of your completed inspection form in the Driver app or Driver Dashboard. Please note, Lyft does not cover the cost of this inspection.
    Best practices
    • Display all required emblems and placards
    • Always have your driver’s license and insurance document
    • Follow all airport rules
    • Don't accept street hails
    • Don't accept cash for rides
    • Don't wait in taxi lines
