Drivers, start your engines. (Yep, all of them.) Our newest feature allows you to get a vehicle Lyft-approved, keep multiple cars on your driver account, and switch between vehicles at a moment’s notice. It’s all just a couple taps away.
Add a Car
You can access this tool in two ways:
- Log in at lyft.com/login and select the Vehicles & Docs page.
- Open the Lyft app and tap Settings, then Vehicle.
You’ll then need to fill in a few details, and upload documents.
Vehicle information. We’re talking color, number of seatbelts, and more.
Photo of your car insurance. Make sure we can see your car and name on the document, along with the policy’s expiration date. If your name isn’t on the card itself, just ask for a declaration page.
Photo of the vehicle. If only cars could say cheese.
Inspection form. Swing by a local mechanic and have them conduct a 19-point inspection, then send us a photo of your passed form.
In certain cities, we’ll also ask to see extra items (like your car registration or an annual inspection sticker) that are required by local officials.
Our team will take a look at your documents and email you as soon as the vehicle’s approved, normally within one to two days. Questions? Head to http://lft.to/CarSwtch
Switch Between Vehicles
Once you have multiple cars approved, you can switch between them instantly. Simply tap the car you’d like to drive. (Yep, that’s it.)
With car switching, you can still drive when one car’s in the shop, buried under snow, or just in need of a car wash. Stay tuned for more ways that we’re streamlining the Lyft experience.
This feature is now live for iOS and Android nationwide, except in New York City.
