    Driver requirements
    Document requirements
    ASE vehicle inspection
    If you haven't already, upload a photo of your ASE vehicle inspection in the Dashboard.
    If you don't already have an ASE vehicle inspection, print out this form and bring it to an ASE certified mechanic (see a list of inspection locations here).
    If you're already an approved rideshare driver with an ASE inspection form, you can upload a copy of that form in the Dashboard (you do not need a second inspection).
    Inspections are valid until the marked expiration date. If no expiration date is marked, Lyft requires a new inspection one year after the inspection date.
    Requisitos del emblema
    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.
    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.
    If you’ve just been approved to drive, you should receive your Lyft emblem shortly. If you didn't get one or need a new one, order one in your Dashboard. While waiting for it to arrive, you may print a temporary emblem.
