In most regions, the referring driver is eligible for a bonus when they refer another driver to drive with Lyft. The referred applicant is generally eligible for Guaranteed Earnings (not a bonus) unless otherwise specified.
Referring driver requirements
To be eligible for a referral bonus, referring drivers must:
Bonus amounts and ride requirements may change based on the referring driver, the referred applicant, and the region of the referred applicant. Requirements in a city or region may be different for drivers or applicants in the same area.
Referring drivers can view the bonus requirements for applicants they refer in their market through the Lyft Driver app.
Referred applicants may receive a communication from a referring driver regarding bonus requirements. Please note that Lyft can’t control the final content of these communications and can’t be held liable for any inaccuracies that they may contain.
Once a referred applicant has started their application, Lyft will email a confirmation to both the referring driver and referred applicant. The confirmation email will contain relevant bonus amounts, ride requirements, and time limits. Please contact us for details about your application.
Referred applicant requirements
To be eligible for an available referral promotion, referred applicants must:
Inicie una solicitud de conductor en la app o en “Maneje con Lyft” y, a continuación, acepte los términos de Lyft y seleccione “Convertirme en conductor”. Los montos de los bonos y los requisitos pueden cambiar una vez que termine este paso.
Enter the referring driver’s referral code in the ‘Promo/Referral code’ field on the first step of the application
If you follow a referral link from your referring driver, the code should be automatically entered
If you don't enter a code when starting your application, you won’t be eligible for this referral promotion
Ser aprobado para manejar dentro de los 30 días siguientes al comienzo de la solicitud
Complete the specified number of rides in the required timeframe from being approved to drive. No more than two rides with the same passenger count toward ride requirements.
In some areas, current drivers can refer previously approved drivers. To return to the Lyft platform, these drivers must not have completed a ride in a while. Returning drivers do not need to submit a new application to begin driving. They must complete the required amount of rides within the given timeframe. If these requirements aren't met, the referring driver won't receive their referral rewards.

The duration of the application review process may vary
This promotion runs for a limited time only. Terms and bonus amounts (if any) are subject to change
Las promociones de los bonos de recomendación no se pueden combinar con las promociones de Garantía de ganancias ni con las promociones de registro de conductor nuevo.
The bonus amount (if any) may vary based on the referring driver and the region of the referred applicant. There's no guarantee that all referring drivers or referred applicants in the same region will receive the same bonus amounts or ride requirements
If a referred applicant has an existing application, they’re only eligible for the referral amount, if any, associated with that original application. They aren’t eligible for any other referral amount. This prior referral promotion may have expired, in which case the applicant won’t be eligible for a referral bonus
Applicants who select an Express Drive rental vehicle aren’t eligible for a referral bonus. The referring driver may still earn a one-sided referral bonus if the applicant meets the bonus requirements
We may share information concerning a referred applicant’s eligibility, progress, or qualification for a referral bonus with the referring driver
Los conductores no pueden ganar bonos de recomendación si se recomiendan ellos mismos
Earnings Guarantees for referred applicants
If you’re eligible for a guarantee, we'll email you with the amount and details. You'll be able to see your ride requirements and track your progress from the 'Earnings' tab in the Lyft Driver app.
How do Earnings Guarantees work?
Give a certain amount of rides within a certain window of time (specified in emails and your Driver app) in the approved location and you’re guaranteed to make a fixed amount.
If you don’t earn the amount of the Earnings Guarantee from driving, we’ll pay you the difference, so you’re still guaranteed to make that total amount.
Earnings Guarantees are not a bonus.
Note: Each requesting passenger in a Shared ride counts toward your total number of rides for the week
Calculating the guaranteed amount
All eligible earnings are totaled once the requirements are met. Eligible earnings include the total payments for each ride, including per-ride bonuses. Other earnings such as tips, tolls, other Lyft bonuses, airport fees, and the Lyft Platform Fee and Service Fee aren’t included.
If the total eligible earnings for that pay period equal or exceed the guaranteed amount, congrats! You’ve earned the guaranteed amount.
If the total eligible earnings aren’t equal or more than the guaranteed amount, we'll bonus you the difference. The difference will be listed as a line item in your Weekly Summary and won't be included in any of your daily summaries.
Please note that the following terms apply, and are subject to change:
Earnings guarantees are based on your take home ride earnings (not including tips, tolls, other Lyft bonuses or fees)
Los conductores elegibles no pueden recibir un bono de conductor nuevo. Solo se puede aplicar un código al aplicar para manejar con Lyft.
Esta promoción solo es válida por un tiempo limitado y podrá suspenderse o finalizarse en cualquier momento a la discreción de Lyft. El monto de la garantía varía por región y por fecha de solicitud, y podrá modificarse a la discreción de Lyft.
Para cumplir con tus requisitos de viajes, consideraremos un máximo de dos viajes con el mismo pasajero.
