    Driver requirements
    Document requirements
    Vehicle registration
    Drivers must provide proof of vehicle registration and keep a non-digital copy of their vehicle registration in their vehicle. Vehicle registration expires annually.
    Documentos de registro temporal aceptables en Portland: 
    If you're waiting for your permanent registration, we accept the following temporary documents. Select a document to see an example image.
    Not acceptable registration documents in Portland:
    Personal vehicle insurance
    Drivers are required to have personal vehicle insurance and keep a non-digital copy of their personal insurance in their vehicle. Personal vehicle insurance plans vary, and must be updated before your policy’s expiration date.
    Portland insurance requirements 
    Portland drivers must keep a non-digital copy of the TNC insurance in their vehicle. Print a copy of the insurance here.
    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
    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.
    Los conductores existentes también pueden visitar el mostrador de servicio de Brown's Parkrose Point S para la reinspección anual. Esta ubicación solo ofrece reinspecciones anuales. Para obtener ayuda en persona, visita la Estación Lyft.
    Brown’s Parkrose Point S
    Quienes se postulan por primera vez deben visitar la Estación Lyft o programar una cita en una de nuestras ubicaciones de inspección certificadas en el panel de control antes de ser aprobados. Las citas de inspección, generalmente, toman de 15 a 20 minutos. Lleva tu vehículo y todos los documentos que se describen a continuación:
    Business License
    The city or county where you live may require you to obtain a business license. Refer to your local city or county's website for these requirements.
    Keep your business license in your vehicle in case the authorities ask to see it.
    Select a city for local requirements:
    Portland Business License
    All Portland drivers must apply for a City of Portland Business License, on the City of Portland Revenue Division website. This is a free license you can get on your own, or by visiting the Hub for assistance.
    For new applicants: For detailed instructions on how to get your City of Portland Business License, visit our Portland Business License How-To Guide.
    For existing drivers: For detailed instructions on how to get your new City of Portland Business License number, visit our Guide to getting your new Portland Business License number.
    Portland drivers who also give rides in Vancouver, WA should be aware of business license requirements for the City of Vancouver.
    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).
    Portland For-hire Driver Permit
    The City of Portland requires all drivers to obtain a Portland driver permit. Drivers are required to display these permits in their vehicle in a location visible to riders at all times while operating as a Lyft driver. The City of Portland will automatically process a permit for a driver after they are approved on the Lyft platform. No action is required by the driver.
    A permanent driver permit will be mailed to the shipping address associated with the driver’s Lyft account. If you have not received your permit in two months, please stop by the Portland Lyft Hub or contact PBOT Private For-Hire Transportation at 503-823-7483.
    Failure to display the Portland driver permit is a Class D violation subject to penalties provided in Chapter 16.40.930 of the Private For-Hire Transportation Regulations.
    Portland City Quiz
    Portland drivers must pass the Portland City Quiz with an 60% score or better.
    En el Panel de control, responde el cuestionario en la pestaña “Tutoriales” o visita The Hub para obtener ayuda. Después de completar la prueba, ingresa el porcentaje de puntuación de la prueba en el campo “Prueba de la ciudad de Portland" de la pestaña “Documentos" de la app de Lyft Driver.
    Emblem requirements
    Ir a:
    Lyft trade dress emblem
    Local laws in Portland 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.
    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.
    View driving requirements for specific airports in Oregon.
