What is Lyft?

Lyft is a platform that connects drivers with individuals and organizations that need rides.

  • Step 2: Accept a passenger ride request

2)Can you become a Lyft driver if you don’t possess a car?

If you are looking for driving jobs but don’t own a car then Lyft is the right place for you. To start Lyft jobs it is not necessary to have your own vehicle. You can hire a car from the Express Drive Program to use for driving, but it will be expensive. To get into the program you have to be at least 25 years old and give a deposit to hire a car. But, this program is available in some specific locations, so make sure you go through the program guide before applying for this career. While filling up the application form, mention whether you own a car or you need to hire a car for driving.

You can also request a car through the Lyft app.

3)What is the work of a Lyft driver?

In Lyft jobs, you have to use the app to give customers a ride whenever they want and to their appropriate destination.

You have to accept the ride requests from the Lyft app, pick up the riders and drive them to their destination. In driving jobs, you can select your shifts and make your own timetable. To enjoy flexible hours and decide when and how much to work, apply now for the position. You get to be your own boss and earn from the number of trips you complete in a day.

4)What kind of insurance will you need for Lyft jobs?

To start driving jobs you need a legitimate car insurance policy in your name. You can contact your insurance company to get all the details of the policy. You may also get a rideshare auto insurance policy from the company’s insurance partner.

To become a Lyft driver you have to update your policy every 6 or 12 months to avoid any kind of disruption. Your policy must meet the mandatory state requirements and report about your policy every now and then to the company. Before the expiration date of your policy, the company will give you a reminder so that you can still drive with Lyft.

5)How can a Lyft driver accept rides?

To receive ride requests the drivers must turn on the Lyft app on their smartphone. Switch to driving mode and wait for some time to receive drive requests. After receiving a request you will get 15 seconds time to review the ride, you can accept or refuse the ride if you want. You won’t be able to see the destination of the rider while reviewing the ride request. Some riders can book a ride in advance with a given time slot.

So, after you come online, Lyft jobs give you the advantage to go through the advance booking slot. After you select any of the rides, the passengers will get a notification about their trip.
