Uber and Lyft car requirements vary from state-to-state so if you’re looking to buy a car it’s best to buy one that will work on both platforms if you’re looking to maximize your income.
Uber is kind of a pain, and makes you signup for an account before seeing their car requirements… this could cost you the signup bonus from signing up through a friend. We listed a few Uber/Lyft promo codes specifically for Las Vegas last month.
We created an account on Uber and have the info for you:
To partner with Uber, your vehicle must:
Be 2006 or newer
Have 4 or more doors
Not be salvaged
Keep in mind that in 2017 Uber will likely update the year requirements to 2007 and newer.
Uber also requires a background check and a current drivers license to complete registration.
But before rushing out to buy a car, note that Lyft requires that you car be 2008 and newer.
Lyft has a complete guide for Nevada Driver Requirements, which include everything from vehicle requirements to how to get a business license (a requirement for Las Vegas).
Recommendation: Buy a used car 2008 or newer to work on both platforms.
Craigslist is your best bet to find a car, we’ve also listed a few used car dealerships that offer cars under $10k. Neither Uber or Lyft have milage requirements.
For financing, check your local credit union for the best rate.
