Beginners tutorial for driving Lyft! I jam packed this full of tips and things I learned as well as go over how much I made driving for my first month. Definitely something useful and I would have liked to see something like this when I started, so I hope it helps!

Here is a referral code if you want to try it out:
www.lyft.com/drivers/TRACEN67740

I go over the supplies I bought that have been useful, a few tricks to know about in the app, as well as how to tell if there are other Lyft drivers around you!

As well as go over how much money I made, I include how many hours and rides it took, along with a mileage estimate.

I really tried to cram as much into this video without making it over 20 minutes, so I hope you find some good value and maybe give driving a try!

How do you turn the volume down on the driver app for lyft. It's loud and annoying. Nobody had ever been able to answer this. The uber app is much easier to change the volume.

maaaann!!!, guys jus do the math. don't listen to these guys. like for example: yesterday I drove for 4 hours/ total rides earnings 62.54 $ now deduct: gas. gas per millage ( I used my odometer to see how many miles I drove) I drove 104 miles in the four hours. gas at @$ the gallon. ( my car makes 20 mpg ) deduct: wear and tear / pay taxes at the end of the year. at the end of the day I think I am getting rip off by lyft and Uber. everybody is different.

A couple questions: Great video btw! Lyft is running a crazy $9,000 guaranteed earnings promo now (200 deliveries in 30 days). Do you think it's possible to hit that goal?? Where area did you drive?

I’ve watched bunch of videos about Lyft. As it pertains to drivers and breaking down figures and all. The questions I have as well as my wife aren’t talked about. It’s the number one question her and I have when considering driving for Lyft. Can you guess what it is? How does the rider pay, when does the rider pay step by step.
Tracen Fitzpatrick
Tracen Fitzpatrick 2 aylar önce
They automatically pay in their passenger Lyft app. Their card info is stored in the app. If they accept a ride, they are billed automatically/immediately. Then when they are dropped off, it pays you immediately in the driver app. You can cash out anytime you want and have an immediate bank deposit that costs .50cents, or it automatically transfers your weekly earnings every Tuesday (for me at least). Hope that answers your question.

I'm beginning to not like Lyft, I've had many drivers who play dirty hip hop music in their car out loud. I don't want any problems so I don't say anything. But have some respect and ask the person if they're okay with that. Sheesh why can't people play classic music or relaxing music with no words?? not everyone likes to hear music about bitches and hoes and money bla bla. Even though I'm young, I still don't like it. I just want a relaxing car ride to my destination!

Your earnings are a joke. I was averaging $1200 a week. And driving LYFT ITS NO LONGER WORTH IT. You did not take into consideration the wear and tear in your car. You will destroy it driving ride share full time. In addition, you still got to pay taxes on that money. Plus you will change tires more often. You will change oil more often. And you did not subtract the expenses of all the junk you bought at the beginning.

One issue i see that needs to be addressed is the drive to the pickup and the driver getting paid nothing for that. I get 15 minute plus pickup times often only to take a rider two to four miles down the road. Cannot make enough money with that happening. I tried it for ten days and it just was not worth the stress of fighting traffic with no more than I was able to net.

Drove with LYFT for ten days and had this recurring issue. In Atlanta, Ga if your vehicle is older than 2014 the app will log you off when dropping passengers off at the terminals because the vehicle does qualify for airport pickups. Well. when a on a three ride streak this will break my streak. it happened four times in four days as I go to the airport regularly. After a lengthy chat session with a different rep every time in which I had to explain the entire situation over and over I had three support reps acknowledge it is an issue on Lyft's end and credit me the money. The fourth rep basically said I should stay away from the airport since I do not qualify. Hello, what am I supposed to do with my rider that is going to the airport? I am finished with LYFT since it is barely worth my time with the bonus and certainly not worth my time without the bonuses. After gas I averaged around 12 dollars an hour in my ten days and 156 rides. Not getting rich here folks. I see why LYFT is begging for drivers.

I was thinking of driving to Denver, but that's an hour drive for me so thank you for mentioning that - going to save me a bunch of miles sticking to more local areas (plus less competition) Also using the passenger app to see competition is great to avoid unused online time when you're not booked and waiting for a ride.

Great posting with very good tips on having the Covid safety kit, extra mask, sanitizers etc. Also the suggestion of having something to occupy the kids with such as watching a movie or playing a game . Gives one a better understanding and working knowledge to make an informed decision as to giving this opportunity a try.

Its over for Lyft/UBER. Had it good b4 pandemic. Could half ass & make $ like u work a full day at a normal gig. Hopefully u did it to the max & saved up or you're sufferin succatash. No tech ppl at work mean Lyft & Uber $ & demand declined. It was made for tech ppl by tech ppl to get around. They arent going to n from work, airports, coffee, bars etc. And a lot of them will be working from home permanent. So its never going back to how it was. Bthere will always be need & demand just not as much. Ppl used to laugh at ppl workin regular jobs but not so funny now.

@Technical Glitch because you’re not really making any money 🤣😂 you’re destroying an asset that is obviously essential to you… the passenger always ALWAYS has the upper hand regardless even if you have an in car camera… whatever the passenger says to Lyft is what Lyft goes by. My neighbor purchased a Prius specifically for Lyft/Uber/Grubhub he got deactivated on Lyft because of customers lying to get free rides… he installed a camera in his car started Uber same scenario people tried to get free rides by canceling the ride when the get near walking distance of their destination… he said he has more fun just delivering part time because the rideshare companies don’t care about the drivers at all, & it’s unnecessary stress added to his life.

The only problem i have with this info is that BG checks take 3-10 days. And We get B.G checks regularly. So, You could not have started on a Saturday or Sunday because we are closed. Even if for some reason it went out in the system on Sat you still would not be driving on Sunday. Also, You get BG check first then once it clears you get an inspection, or you go rent a car. I hate bad facts. I been a Driver since we started.

It's lame how Uber and Lyft won't allow you to drive after you've been driving and they do their next background check. Seems to me that they should be doing the background check while you're driving and if something comes back on the background check that would be against their policy they could then send you a message advising that they need to remove you from the app.

What you really need to know... 1) when you get into a accident, YOU WILL NOT GET ANY HELP FROM LYFT 2) you upkeeps, maintenance and repairs will be expensive, again YOU WILL NOT GET ANY HELP FROM LYFT 3) you will have disrespectful, extremely entitled and egotistical assholes in your car 4) do not expect tips... i spent 2 3 years slaving for these people... 95% of that time i did not get any tip, from hardly anybody,... they will get you tho, you will be given alot of rides at first... they make you feel like you getting alot of money, but they do hold power on how many rides you get a day,... 5) yes true, while you can get to see how long is the ride... the catch is,... you have to slave for a certain pertage first... and even then, once you do make it to that level, you HAVE TO HOLD IT BY ACCEPTING RIDES YOU KNOW ITS COMPLETELY BULLSHIT... if you decline that ride from lets say 70% and it goes back down to 69% YOU WILL LOOSE THAT STATUS.... 6) during covid times?... you really going to up yourself out there in close proximity with random people? Over all... its definitely not worth it slaving yourself, your car and time for this app, these people that do not appreciate service... id say f#%k them... hell no...

Information not given: Rates vary by regions. Some areas make considerably less per mile/minute than others. Also: Uber will pay you a small stipend to pick up farther away (8 minutes or more) whereas lyft does not. Lyft automatically adds the next ride. Uber will ask you first.

You don’t need an LLC. Lyft/Uber usually signs you up as an individual. As a Lyft driver, you’re are considered an independent contractor and so categorized as self employed. That means your most of your expenses are tax deductible.

They pay so little to give rides, and that's why drivers protest and states and countries are cracking down on them, and/or suing them. California is suing Uber and Lyft, and for good reason.

If you rent a vehicle, be prepared to have to drive a lot just to cover the expense and make income for yourself. Only rent if you are going to do it full-time and drive constantly. You will feel like a slave driver, doing their bidding. You'll become resentful if you have a brain.

This guy made the video to ultimately entice people who have been considering driving. He wants those gullible types to use his referral link. He then gets the referral bonus, and doesn't want or need to drive for Lyft or Uber. He knows it's a losing proposition, though, he still has revenue coming in the gullible are signing up. Much smarter move than to drive for Uber or Lyft.

I do video work as my profession and tried Lyft out on the side during days I didn’t have other gigs.

Well just tried to sign up using your referral code. All was well until I got to the vehicle. I have an '05 Yukon XL, unfortunately it does not qualify. A '06 will though.

Do you really expect other gig drivers can believe you're making an average over $10 per ride because after all the applications themselves claim that the average ride is from 3 to 5 miles which is easy to figure doing basic math even at a dollar per mile would only pay $5

@george talley II remember you can deduct those miles so less money for uncle Sam

I figured I waste money going to rides more than 8 minutes away and 15 and more not for $3. And the piss spot on the gps....DriveAway !

Yeah, I definitely didn't get $10/ride, that was more the overall average after longer rides or with tips included. I mostly had $3-$5 rides, especially in the college towns, but I also had some $40-$60 rides, so that's why the average overall was higher. And if someone can also get on that 120 ride $1200 guarantee that I did, that equals $10/ride.

Yeah a dash cam definitely helps! I do doordash and i use it for my deliveries, I'm thinking of getting into Lyft also cause doordash is slow in my area during the day. I'll by a dash cam facing inwards for Lyft. For my safety and for the customers safety.
