Do the requirements change according to what state you live in?


I noticed that the Lift website has you type in your state to get more information about what you need outside of an active driver's license. I have not worked with them for 3 years and I think their policies and rules may have changed. I am just curious if this is the case.

Yes, they do change. This is because state road laws are different in various states as well as license laws. Most people assume they are all the same within the US but some states are quite different with what they allow and don't allow.

Yes. Choose your state or city from the list on Driver Application Requirements to see the documents and steps required to apply as a driver with Lyft. If you're an approved driver, see State & City Driver Information for specific document requirements (like emblems, insurance, and vehicle inspections) based on where you drive.

Yup! I know this because I have driven in two different states. I moved a few years ago and I had to register again according to the new states requirements.

I would imagine so. We all have similar laws but they are not all alike. This goes the same for road laws. Some places are more strict with things than others.

Yeah road laws vary state to state. Heck, you might find different laws and rules within the same state depending on the county. It is important you look into the requirements for your state and specific location.
