    Inspección del vehículo en Bloomington
    If you're applying to drive in Bloomington, print this form and bring it to an ASE certified mechanic for your vehicle inspection. Upload a photo of the completed form in the Dashboard.
    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.
