What Do I Do to Make Out a Lyft Insurance Report?

You will make out a Lyft Insurance report by contacting the Lyft Claims Customer Care team. In general, all Lyft drivers in California need to carry minimum auto insurance, which is:

  • $15,000 for bodily injuries per person hurt in an accident
  • $30,000 for bodily injury for each accident
  • $5,000 property damage coverage for each accident

The minimum insurance applies when the Lyft driver’s app is off, and it is called Period 0.

Next is Period 1, when the driver’s app is on and ready to pick up passengers, but doesn’t have a passenger yet. Here, the coverage for drivers is $50,000/$100,000 and $25,000 property damage coverage. Finally, in Periods 2 and 3 apply when a passenger is in the Lyft car. This allows a $1 million insurance policy to go into force for the driver and for the passenger in that case.
