Lyft is on its way up. The company has been gaining so much momentum the last 2 years so much so that there are now 4X more riders using the app. What that translates to is more pay/income for Lyft drivers. Benefits for becoming a driver include setting your own time and driving whenever you want. And if you sign up today, you get to make an additional $250 bonus as a new driver. So if you are ready to take the jump here are 5 easy steps to get started.
Step 1 – Use this checklist to get all the Lyft requirements
- I am at least 21 years old and have a valid state driver’s license for at least 1 year
- I have, or have access to a 4-door car from the year 2005 or newer (You don’t have to own the car as long as you are listed on the insurance policy)
- Car is fully insured and my name is on the insurance policy
- Car has passed inspection and registered to the state I am driving in (Lyft will require these car documents and proof of insurance to get approved)
- I own a good smartphone
Step 2 – Register An Account as a Lyft Driver
Once you have gathered all the required documents, go ahead and register your drivers account here. Be sure to use the referral code INCOMEDRIVER when prompted so that you can receive your $250 pay bonus as a new driver.
Step 3 – Get your car cleaned and ready
Registration can take a few days to get approved but typically you will receive an approval within 24 hours assuming you submitted the right documents and information listed in the checklist. While you wait for your approval you should go ahead and clean your car, both in and out and make sure it’s nice and fresh to pick up passengers.

Simply search for the Lyft driver app in the app store (available on android and ios) and download it to your smartphone.
