4. Choose your own schedule

Sleep 'til noon or wake up for the morning rush — it's up to you. In between other jobs or family obligations, you can make it work. Working at your own pace has never been easier thanks to Lyft's Drive Smarter feature. This amazing feature displays real-time maps of hotspots and demand forecasts. Make informed decisions on whether to work and maximize your earning potential during the busy times.

5. Quick and easy sign-up process

Becoming a Lyft driver isn't some long, complicated process. It can take as little as 10 minutes to fill out your application online. You'll need a valid driver's license, proof of insurance, and a 4-door vehicle*.

Following a background check, you'll be notified if your application has been approved. Then, you can start working right away.

If you don't own a car or want to save your personal vehicle from wear and tear, you can rent one through Lyft's Express Drive program. There's no long-term contract, and you can keep your rental for as long as needed (and return anytime after seven days).

We get that starting something new right now might feel daunting. But with Lyft, you can do things your way. The demand for rideshare apps has never been greater— now is the time to get started. So what are you waiting for?

The harder you work, the better the payoff.

The hourly earnings communicated above are no guarantee of future performance and not indicative of any specific driver's earnings, and calculated before taxes, insurance, depreciation, and other costs associated with being a rideshare driver. This calculation includes all online platform time for drivers, including any potential time spent engaged with other app-based services.
