Apply to Drive
If you're applying to become a driver in Utah, 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 Utah 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.
For the State of Utah, Lyft's insurance coverage is modified to provide primary liability coverage during a waiting period* and extends Lyft's comprehensive and collision coverage during a waiting period.
If the vehicle you use to provide Lyft rides has a lien against it, you're required to notify the lienholder that you are using the vehicle to give Lyft rides. Using a vehicle with a lien against it to give Lyft rides may violate your contract with the lienholder.
*The waiting period is the time when a driver flips into driver mode until the driver accepts a ride request.
- 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.
Utah drivers are required to maintain a current driver's license and vehicle registration. Always update your documents via the Dashboard when they expire.
If you're already a driver in a different state, and you're moving to Utah, send us a message with the following info:
- The date you're moving
- Your new shipping address
- Clear photos of your Utah-issued driver's license and vehicle registration
