    4)What documents are required for a Lyft driver application?

    Your driver's license and other work-related documentation would be needed. But, depending on the city, the application criteria can differ.

    5)How are Lyft drivers remunerated?

    Your compensation is determined by the length and distance of each journey (and you keep 100 percent of your tips, of course). Since all transfers are made weekly via the Lyft Driver app, you'll need to add your banking information to get charged. You can also set up Express Pay to allow you to withdraw money wherever you want.

    7)Does LYFT cover the cost of gas?

    No, Lyft would not reimburse their drivers for the petrol they use. Any trip's fuel costs are covered by the driver. Since Lyft drivers are independent contractors rather than Lyft workers, they must pay for their petrol.

    8)How long does it take LYFT to approve your application?

    Lyft’s background check should take 3-10 days to process and complete, according to Lyft. The majority of drivers say it takes 3-5 days, which is significantly less time than the normal other company's background check. However, some factors may cause this to take longer.
