Applying for Lyft is very simple, just fill out this form: click here for form. Signing up via this link will award you a signup bonus after completing a number of trips within 30 days (number of trips required varies by city).

Once you signup, make sure to download the Lyft app. It’s free and is available on both the Android and Apple app store. The Lyft rider app and driver app are on in the same.

Within hours, you will be emailed and asked to set up a “Welcome ride”. This is where you will meet with an experienced Lyft driver (a mentor), provide all required documents (drivers license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance).

Your mentor will also take photos of your car and a photo of you for your profile (be ready! :P).

In addition, you will be giving a test ride. Your mentor will request a ride that you will then accept and go through the process on the app and go for a drive. After the ride, you will be able to ask any questions you might have and your mentor will submit all of your information.

Once your welcome ride is completed and all the necessary documentation has been submitted, Lyft will run a background check. You can have any arrests or convictions within the last 7-10 years. If everything is ran smoothly, you will be approved to hit the road within 1-2 weeks of signup!

Happy Lyfting!
