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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
