    Portland insurance requirements
    Los conductores de Portland están obligados a llevar una copia no digital del seguro de la compañía de red de transporte (TNC) en el vehículo.Imprima una copia del seguro aquí.
    TNC drivers are not required to purchase or maintain an insurance policy that provides TNC coverage. Insurance maintained by the TNC does not include collision coverage for affiliated TNC drivers unless the policy secured and maintained by the TNC expressly states otherwise.
    Drivers' personal insurance may be subject to cancellation or may not provide coverage because a driver uses a vehicle in connection with a TNC. Insurance coverage is provided by the TNC on a primary basis from the first dollar of every claim unless a policy secured by the TNC expressly states otherwise.
    Lyft drivers will not receive any material benefit or incentive of any kind from Lyft for securing personal TNC insurance coverage. Effective January 2nd, 2016, one year of driving experience in the United States is sufficient to meet the minimum requirement for Lyft applicant driving experience.
    Vehicle inspection (Eugene and Portland only)
    Drivers are required to have a vehicle inspection before becoming approved to drive, and annually thereafter.
    To find an inspection location, schedule an appointment, or upload your inspection document, see the Driver Dashboard.

    Vancouver Business License
    The city of Vancouver, Washington, requires that each person or entity conducting business in the city limits obtain a city business license. The city does offer an exemption from paying the city business license fees if the business is qualified for one of the city’s nonprofit or other exemption criteria – e.g., estimates generating less than $12,000 in annual gross receipts in the city. As of March 16, 2017, the city stopped accepting Determination of Exemption Checklist forms to claim an exemption from the business license and associated fees.
    La ciudad se ha asociado con el Servicio Estatal de Licencias Comerciales de Washington (BLS, por sus siglas en inglés) para el manejo de sus licencias comerciales de la ciudad, incluidas aquellas que están exentas del pago de los cargos de licencia de actividad comercial de la ciudad. Si deseas postularte para obtener una licencia, encuentra las instrucciones en línea o en formato impreso visitando www.bls.dor.wa.gov/cities.vancouver.aspx. Para obtener asistencia con el proceso de solicitud, contacta a BLS por teléfono (800-451-7985) o por e-mail (bls@dor.wa.gov).
    Nota: Si calculas generar menos de $12 000 en promedio bruto anual de recibos dentro de los límites de la ciudad de Vancouver, puedes elegir estar exento de los cargos de licencia de actividad comercial de la ciudad completando la sección Complemento de la ciudad (City Addendum) en la solicitud. De cualquier forma, se te emitirá un cargo no reembolsable por la solicitud estatal (actualmente de $19).

    Requisitos para el emblema y el tarjetón
    Ir a:
     
    Lyft trade dress emblem
    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.
    If you drive in Portland, local laws require drivers to display two Lyft emblems when in driver mode: one on the front windshield and the other on the rear windshield. See the image below for placement instructions. Failure to display your Lyft emblems may result in citations or a fine, so make sure to display them every time you drive with Lyft.
    Heads up: Drivers must also clearly write their Portland Business License number on each trade dress emblem they display.
    You will still need to display a rear emblem even if you have a tinted rear windshield.
    If you drive in any other Oregon city, you’re required to display one Lyft emblem on your front windshield while in driver mode, as seen in the image below.
    El emblema de Lyft debe estar en la esquina inferior del parabrisas delantero del lado pasajero cada vez que ingreses al modo de conductor. Asegúrate de quitar el emblema cuando no estés en el modo de conductor.
    Después de que se te apruebe para conducir, los emblemas de Lyft llegarán en un plazo de 1 a 2 semanas. Si no recibiste tus emblemas o necesitas nuevos, haz un pedido en tu panel de control. También puedes imprimir emblemas temporales mientras esperas la versión oficial o recoger tus emblemas en la Estación Lyft.
    Airport displays
    Keep a Lyft emblem displayed at all times while giving Lyft rides at any Oregon airport.
    If you’re giving a non-Lyft ride at the airport, make sure to remove your Lyft emblem before entering airport property.
