How old can your car be in order to work for Lyft?

I want to start driving for Lyft as a way to make some extra cash, but I'm worried my car might be too old. How old can my car be if I want to work for Lyft?

Driving for Lyft is definitely a nice way to make some extra cash! As a general rule, your car must be a 2002 model or later. However, you should check for your particular state, since some have different rules!
For example, if you want to drive in Washington, D.C., your car has to be a 2008 model or newer. You should also keep in mind that your insurance may not cover you if you’re driving for a company like Uber or Lyft, so even if your car is qualified, you’ll have to make sure your insurance policy covers driving for a rideshare company.
One easy way to make sure your insurance is in order is through the Jerry app! We’ll get you personalized quotes from top-of-the-line providers, so all you have to do is pick the plan that works best for you. And once you choose one, we’ll even help you switch!
