About new driver promotions

Bonus amounts and ride requirements for new driver promos change based on region and the specific code used. View bonus requirements in the Driver Dashboard and app.

No more than two rides given to the same passenger count toward your ride requirements. Bonuses for qualifying applicants are paid 1-2 weeks after promotion ends.

Lyft will send a confirmation email to new drivers with the relevant bonus amount, ride requirements, and deadlines that must be met to qualify for the bonus.
