Lyft has a similar process. It takes a few days for your background process to start. Apply here. After you are approved, you will be invited to take a welcome drive with a seasoned lyfter, called a mentor.
On this welcome ride, your mentor will review your documents, take pictures of your car and you and submit all the information to Lyft. The mentor will also take you on a test drive, showing you how to accept, start and end a ride.
Upon completion of your welcome ride Lyft corporate offices will review your documents and finally approve your driver account. You will be able to use your own phone to accept rides.

What are Lyft’s requirements?
You must be at least 21 and own an iPhone or Android phone. As part of our approval process, you’ll undergo a DMV check, plus a national and county background check. This will require a Social Security number, in addition to an in-state driver’s license that is at least a year old. Learn more about our background check standards on our Safety page, and our comprehensive driver requirements in the Help Center.
Your car needs to have four external door handles and at least five total seat belts. You must be a covered party on your car’s in-state insurance, and have in-state license plates. We’ll confirm all of this during your 19-point vehicle inspection. Cars have Lyft age requirements too, which can vary by state. See your state-specific requirements.
