I Make up to $25/Hour Driving for Lyft.
Lyft says drivers can make $25/hour driving your own car. Can you really? Is that possible, or is it all hype?
From my own experience, I can tell you that you really can make up to $25/hour. I regularly make $20 or more per hour driving for Lyft. Check out one of my nightly pay reports below and see how I made $32/hour.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does auto insurance work?
Lyft covers you with a large ($1,000,000) liability policy, and a high-deductible collision insurance policy. You will also need to show Lyft that you’re covered by a personal auto insurance policy. In the event of an accident, Lyft asks that you first try to get covered by your own company, then theirs.

After I apply, when will Lyft contact me?
Lyft will contact you within one business day to tell you what to do next. If you have all of your documents in order (driver’s license, insurance, car registration, etc.), you can be on the road only a few days after you apply.
What if the car I want to drive isn’t registered in my name?
You can drive a car that is not registered in your name as long as the vehicle is listed on your insurance policy.
Can my car have a salvage title?
No. Lyft will not accept cars with salvage titles. (Source)
Can more than one Lyft driver drive the same car?
Yes, as long as both names are on the insurance. So if you and your spouse, significant other, friend, or family member share a car, both of you can be Lyft drivers as long as both of you are insured.
Does Lyft reimburse me for any of my costs?
Lyft will only reimburse you for damage to your car caused by a Lyft user. For instance, if a passenger vomits in your car, Lyft will reimburse the costs of cleaning up to $250. Lyft will not reimburse your other expenses like gas and car maintenance.
Do I have to put the fuzzy pink mustache on my car?
You are not required to use the fuzzy pink mustache, but many drivers and passengers find that it’s a useful way to identify a Lyft car on busy streets. There are other ways to identify your car as a Lyft car, like window stickers and smaller pink mustache plushes that you keep in your car.
Can I drive for Lyft if my car is damaged?
It depends on how damaged your car is. Minor scrapes, scuffs, and dings from very minor accidents are usually ok. Large dents, major paint flaws, hanging or broken bumpers, cracked glass, missing parts — those may cause you to fail the inspection. Read more.
