At the end of the ride, drivers and passengers can rate each other on a scale of 1–5 stars, 5 being the best. Our two-way rating system helps ensure the safety and comfort of the Lyft community.
You should base your rating on your ride experience. You'll have the option to provide specific feedback, so we know which areas to improve.
Passengers have at least two hours to rate a driver from the ‘Rate & Pay’ screen in the app after the ride has ended. All feedback submitted is anonymous and reviewed before shared with drivers.
If you don't provide a rating, drivers will be automatically given a 5-star rating. To change a driver rating, give driver feedback, or rate a driver after the two-hour time frame:
Go to ‘Ride history’ and tap the ride
Tap ‘Get help,’
Tap ‘Submit feedback on driver’
Select the reason for providing feedback before submitting
If you rate your driver 3 stars or lower, you won't be paired with them again.
If you don't select a rating for your passenger, the app will automatically rate them 5 stars. After you end the ride, you have 24 hours to edit the rating in your Driver Dashboard.
To edit a rating in the Driver Dashboard:
Tap 'Driving History'
Select the ride
Tap 'Rate Passengers'
Choose the feedback reason
If you rate a passenger 3 stars or lower, you won't be paired with them again.
How Lyft calculates ratings
Your driver rating is the average of your last 100 ratings. If you have less than 100 rides, your driver rating is the average of all your ratings received so far.
To view your ratings, tap ‘Your Feedback’ in the app.
Passengers can write anonymous feedback about their ride. We’ll email you a summary every week with passenger feedback or areas you can improve on.
Consistently low ratings can put you at risk of deactivation. If your rating is below 4.8, you may want to consider ways to improve it. Tap the ‘Learning Center’ tab in the app for 5-star driving tips.
Your rider rating is an average of your last 100 rides. If you have fewer than 100 rides, your rating is the average of all your rides. Ratings may say 'new' if you have fewer than 25 rides.

Be sure to follow our Community Guidelines during your ride. Guideline violations or consistent low ratings can put your account at risk of deactivation.
If you feel that a driver or passenger rated you poorly due to something out of your control, you can request a review through the app.
Tap 'Ride history'
Select the ride you want to provide feedback on
Tap 'Get help'
Select the reason for your feedback before submitting
Lyft can exclude the lowest rating received out of your last 100 rides. Requests for multiple rating exclusions aren’t guaranteed.
