Lyft Trade Dress Emblem

Lyft emblem

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 emblem shortly. If you never received it, or need a new one, send us a message with your shipping address. In the meantime, you can print out a temporary emblem — make sure to print in color.

Updating Your Driver Profile

Document Renewals

Drivers on the Lyft platform are required to maintain current documents (license, registration, insurance). Always update your documents via the Dashboard when they expire.

Moving to or From Florida as an Existing Lyft Driver

If you're already a driver in a different state, and you're moving to Florida, send us a message with the following info:

  • The date you're moving
  • Your new shipping address
  • A clear photo of your Florida-issued driver's license, insurance, and vehicle registration*

*If you were already required to upload all three of these documents when you became a driver, and they were all issued in Florida, you do not need to send them in again.

Moving from Florida to a different state? Find your new market here to see what steps you'll need to take.
