Vehicle requirements

We have high safety standards for vehicles on the Lyft platform, which include meeting any city or state requirements. Taxis and stretch limousines are not allowed on the Lyft platform. 

Go to lyft.com/drivers to start an application or check your application status. Head to driver application requirements for driver requirements.

If your vehicle requires an inspection, visit your state's page here — the inspection form you need to use, along with mechanic locations (if applicable), are listed there.

Don't own a car? Lyft's Express Drive program helps you rent a car so you can start driving.

Vehicle age

Before applying to drive or moving to a new city, head to driver application requirements and scroll down to find your new city or state, and it's minimum vehicle age requirement.

Doors and seatbelts

All Lyft vehicles are required to have 4 doors and a minimum of 5 seatbelts (including the driver's).
