HyreCar is a car rental marketplace that offers truly flexible car rental options for ride sharing drivers that are looking to either try ride sharing out for a few days, or rent a car long term.

Do you want to make some extra money for the holidays? Or maybe for a full-time income? Then consider becoming a Lyft or Uber driver.

The two big ridesharing companies in the USA both offer you the opportunity to do so by giving rides to people in your part of the country whenever you have some time to spare.

So, what are the car requirements for Uber and Lyft? Do you qualify to be a driver? To see if you are likely to qualify to join either of these ridesharing companies, check out the requirements below.

Note: If your car doesn’t meet these requirements, you can always rent one from us!

Uber/Lyft Car and Driver Requirements
Uber Car Requirements

What kind of car do you need for Uber? How old can your car be to drive for Uber? To join Uber’s budget ridesharing scheme (UberX), you need a car that meets their requirements in full. There is no comprehensive Uber cars list, but if your vehicle meets the UberX driver car requirements listed below, you are probably good to go:

  • Vehicle Age – What year car do you need for Uber? Year 2000 or newer. Uber year requirements vary from city to city. Year 2000 Uber car models are the oldest currently allowed, but the threshold could be 2001, 2005, 2007, or even 2011, depending on where exactly you live.
  • In-State Plates – No out-of-state plates are allowed. You need to own a car that complies with state vehicle regulations. Any car that has in-state plates will obviously be suitable in this respect.
  • Current Registration – To make absolutely sure that the plates on your car are legitimate, UberX car requirements state that your vehicle needs to be currently registered.
  • Configuration – All UberX car models must be a four-door sedan and be able to seat four or more passengers comfortably.

All vehicles must pass the Uber driver car requirements test before they can be used.

Find out what car qualifies for Uber.

Uber/Lyft Car and Driver Requirements
Different Car Types for Uber’s 4 Tiers of Service

What are the different types of Uber? Uber has four basic levels of service: Economy, Premium, Accessibility, and Carpool. For Uber’s Economy services (which include UberX and UberXL), you’ll need a clean, recent-model, four-door car that meets the requirements above.

UberXL is a service that offers more room for additional luggage and people. If you have a van or SUV that is one of the approved UberXL car models, you could make more money. UberXL year requirements are the same as for the UberX service.

If you want to drive for Uber’s premium services, such as UberSELECT, UberBLACK, or UberLUX, you will need an approved luxury car. UberBLACK has an additional requirement that the car is painted black.

(If you have an extra car that meets these requirements and you’re not utilizing it much, you can make money renting it out to other Uber drivers. I highly recommend listing it on our site.)

Uber/Lyft Car and Driver Requirements
Uber Driver Requirements

In order to qualify as a driver, you need to meet the Uber driving requirements. These are not particularly onerous, but they are designed to exclude inexperienced or dangerous drivers from the pool. The basic UberX driver requirements are as follows:

  • Age – 21 or over
  • Experience – Three years or more
  • Driving Record – Clean

If you meet the above requirements, you will then need to pass a background check before you are approved.

Uber/Lyft Car and Driver Requirements
Lyft Car Requirements

The Lyft driver car requirements are more specific than those for Uber but generally speaking, if you own a four-door sedan in good condition, your vehicle is probably one of the approved Lyft car types. The following requirements are accurate as at the time of writing but may change in the future:

  • Vehicle Age – 2003 or newer. As with UberX year requirements, there are some exceptions: In Seattle, Portland, Washington D.C., or Minneapolis-St. Paul, local government regulations mean that Lyft year requirements in these areas are stricter – no vehicles over 10 years old. In Pittsburgh, the limit is 8 years.
  • Licensing – Current registration, with in-state plates.
  • Tires – The tires on your vehicle need to have sufficient tread. Lyft requires you to perform the penny test on each one and send photographic evidence before they will approve your car.
  • Windows – You need to have functional windows on all doors and a windshield with no big cracks anywhere, and absolutely no cracks at all that may obscure the driver’s vision.
  • Windshield Wipers – Front and rear wipers need to be in good working order.
  • Seat Belts – All approved Lyft car models have at least four passenger seat belts (in addition to the driver’s seat belt), and all of them must be functioning properly in order for your car to pass muster.
  • Front Seat Adjustment – The front seats in your vehicle need to move forwards and backward as designed.
  • Car Doors – Your vehicle must have four doors, all of which should open and close without issue – from both the outside and the inside. Your passengers must be able to lock and unlock their doors without assistance.
  • Climate Control – Your vehicle’s heating and air-conditioning systems need to be functioning properly.

Makes and models Lyft has previously approved include the Toyota Tacoma, GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Sonic, and Ford Expedition. Any car with less than four doors or that is not roadworthy will be disqualified.

There is no official list of Lyft-approved models, just as there is no UberX cars list, so you will have to judge for yourself – using the criteria above – whether your vehicle is likely to be approved.

Uber/Lyft Car and Driver Requirements
Different Car Types for Lyft’s 5 Tiers of Service

Like Uber, Lyft offers levels of service to provide economy options for the budget-minded and luxury options for people wanting a nicer ride. Lyft’s five tiers of service are Line (carpool), Lyft (standard service), Plus (more room via SUVs and vans), Lux (luxury) and Lux SUV (luxury SUV).

As with Uber, if you have a luxury car such as a BMW or Lexus that meets the requirements, you can potentially drive for Lyft’s premium services and earn more money.

Uber/Lyft Car and Driver Requirements
Lyft Driver Requirements

If you are fairly certain that your car will be approved, it’s time to take a look at your own credentials. The following is a summary of the Lyft driver requirements:

  • Age – 21 or over.
  • Experience – Must have held a current driving license for at least one year.
  • Driving Record – You must have a clean record.
  • Insurance – You need a valid insurance policy.
  • Phone – You need to own a recent model smart phone.

Earn Money by Driving for Uber or Lyft

If you qualify for either or both of these ridesharing schemes, you could make a substantial amount of money driving your car on a part- or full-time basis. If you have your own car, you can get started immediately making money with Uber and Lyft. If you don’t have a suitable car, you can easily rent a car through our website and start earning cash quickly!

i drive for lyft with a 2014 Nissan Altima, and i am doing it part time, However i am in the process of purchasing a vehicle to drive for Uber Plus ( Audi A4 2007) the car has 120,000 miles on it and it is in excellent condition in and out. I know it will pass the inspection for a safe car, however would it pass by having more than 100,000 miles on it, or any other car that’s exceeded this number for that matter ?
Thanks

hi james, thanks for writing this! i’m going to buy a pontiac vibe –
and drive just part-time for maybe a year. if i get a 2004 (in VGC)
it sounds like in BEAVERTON OREGON i could drive for uber but not lyft.
(Seattle, Portland, Washington D.C… no vehicles over 10 years’ old).
i assume portland means portland OR ?! does that incl. CLACKAMAS
AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES?

i guess to do lyft into next year, i’d need a 2007 right?
hmm, maybe i can do uber, sidecar and food delivery stuff –
everything but lyft. what say ye? thanks again, jon todd

I’m worried about going out and getting one of these cars just to find out that it will not qualify. All of the cars that I’m looking at are fully working, clean, dent free and have clear titles.

Hi I’m almost done with all the requirements to drive for lyft except I moved to Colorado almost 3 years ago and got 2 tickets one was for 5 over and I just paid it and the other one got dropped from speeding to something else cause my daughter was throwing up and I didn’t see the school lights were flashing. Will I still be able to drive for lyft?

    It is hard to say because that is a very specific situation. You should definitely still apply to be a driver because it is free! If you are approved, we would love to help you get on the road so you can make some easy cash.

    Potentially. However, it is definitely worth it to try anyways. Applying for Uber/Lyft is free.

    You will need to have your own insurance before driving for Uber and Lyft. If she would like to list it on our platform to rent it to you, she can visit partner.hyrecar.com to create an account and you will need to visit driver.hyrecar.com to create a driver account. We will get you the proper insurance you need to upload to Uber/Lyft once you successfully book the vehicle. If you have any additional questions or need help after you create an account, please email sales@hyrecar.com or call 888-688-6769.

How exactly does this work? Are there any hidden fees? Insurance included? Are the cars already approved with Uber and Lyft? How is the process of getting the car on my driver profile? I already drive for Lyft and would like to drive for Uber as well. Is there a deposit required and what about maintenance? Do they come already detailed and cleaned? Who owns these cars? Thanks!

    Hi Jayna, the process is very simple. You will select a vehicle in your location that you like and book it. We will run a quick background check and then the owner will be able to approve your application if the vehicle is available. Once approved, you will receive the required documents (Insurance with your name on it, registration, and the Uber/Lyft inspection forms) on your HyreCar driver dashboard. You will then be able to upload them into your Uber/Lyft account and arrange a pick up time/location with the owner. There are no hidden fees, as the payment is very transparent and made up front. Insurance is $10/day. A deposit of $200 (fully refundable) is only required if you are paying with a debit card. If you have a credit card to use for the payment, we will not charge the additional $200, but we will simply keep the card on file.

    All of the vehicles are privately owned by individuals in your area. The owners are responsible for the maintenance of the vehicle and should have them cleaned as well.

    We will have a representative reach out to you today to answer any additional questions you might have.

I’m starting with Lyft in January. I’d no prior knowledge as to the 5 tiers. I’ll be renting a New car. If I choose a luxury sedan as opposed to the less expensive options will my income be higher?

    If you choose to drive a luxury vehicle, you should be eligible to drive for Uber Select and Lyft Premier (assuming the vehicle qualifies), which charges the passengers more each ride. This often results in an increase to drivers income. You will want to make sure you check out the different options that are available to you in your specific location.

    It depends on the severity of the ticket. It is always worth applying to drive for Uber/Lyft since it is totally free!

If you end up getting into a car accident as an uber driver be sure you salvage your car to pay for some of the costs.

Would a Mustang GT350R be considered for Uber or Lyft? I see people that have hired lamborghinis for both companies. I would consider driving for either company as long as the car is approved.

Then how do people that have used Uber or Lyft Hire a Lamborghini since it only has 2 doors? You would think offering people a chance to arrive in Super Cars, and the GT350 is a super car, would be on a list to be an option for those that want the experience..

I came down to the lyft office in L.I.C. to sign on and found out that my 2008 Nissan Maxima with 38,000 miles does not qualify. Your site indicates otherwise. I was referred to you by one of your drivers – David Rishty. Uber had no problem accepting my vehicle as it is in perfect condition. Please explain.

    You will need to check your specific city in GA, but for example it states that in Atlanta the vehicle age requirement is 2003 or newer. If you need to rent a vehicle to drive for Uber or Lyft, please visit https://app.hyrecar.com/offers to get started.
