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.
The Lyft emblem should be displayed in the lower corner of your front and rear windshield on the passenger side every time you enter driver mode. Make sure to remove the emblem when you are not in driver mode.

As of March 20, 2020, New Jersey law requires drivers to display a placard containing driver and vehicle information, as well as a unique barcode that riders can scan to confirm their ride.
A link to a printable temporary placard will be emailed to all new New Jersey drivers. Permanent placards will be mailed to the driver's shipping address. If you haven’t received a placard or a temporary placard email, please reach out to support.
If you update your existing vehicle information or add a new vehicle to your account, we’ll mail you a new placard with your new information.
You can print a temporary placard at any time using the link in your email.
How to display your placard
New Jersey law requires that drivers display a placard on each of their rear passenger windows. To display your placards:
Separate each placard from the instructions;
Place one placard on each rear passenger window of your car, facing out; and
Ensure placards are clearly visible from sidewalks
Placards will display your driver and vehicle information, as well as a unique barcode riders can scan to confirm their ride
Once you tap to arrive, your passenger will have the option to scan the barcode on your window
If your passenger decides to scan the barcode, they’ll see confirmation in their app
