    Requisitos de documentos
    Vehicle registration
    If your name isn't listed on your vehicle registration, you must complete this authorization form to use that vehicle on the Lyft platform. Have the owner of the vehicle sign the form, and keep a copy in your vehicle at all times while in driver mode.
    When uploading a photo of your vehicle registration, include the registration document and authorization form side by side in the same picture.
    Annual vehicle inspection
    Drivers in Kentucky must get an annual vehicle inspection. Print this form and bring it to a mechanic for an inspection.
    Please upload a photo of your completed inspection form in the Dashboard.
    Defensive Driving course certificate
    After being approved to drive and annually thereafter, all Kentucky Lyft drivers are required to take the NSC Defensive Driving course. If you've previously completed the NSC Defensive Driving course, no need to take it again. Simply upload your completion certificate to your Dashboard or Lyft Driver App.
    If you have not previously completed the course, follow the instructions below. The course must be completed on a desktop or laptop computer, and it takes 2 to 4 hours to complete.
    1. Select "New Student," and then "New Student Registration"
    2. Enter in KYLYFTDDC as your access code and submit
    3. Choose a login ID and password on the registration page, and submit. Use the phone number and email address linked with your Lyft account so we can verify your completion of the course.
    4. On the "My Courses" page, select "NSC Defensive Driving 10th Edition R2"
    5. Complete the course and upload your certificate to your Dashboard or Lyft Driver App. If you've already taken the course and need help accessing your certificate, contact the course provider, Safety Serve, at 1-800-775-1484.
    Here's what the Defensive Driving course certificate looks like:
    TNC vehicle authorization form
    If your name isn't listed on your vehicle registration, you must complete this authorization form to use that vehicle on the Lyft platform. Have the owner of the vehicle sign the form, and keep a copy in your vehicle at all times while in driver mode.
    When uploading a photo of your vehicle registration, include the registration document and authorization form side by side in the same picture.
    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.
    Lyft will send you a grey TNC vehicle decal. Once you receive your decal, place it on the lower right hand (passenger side) corner of your front window.
