Oldsmar Automotive Lyft/Uber Vehicle Inspections Station
With each year, more and more drivers are making the big decision to monetize their personal cars and work as drivers for Uber and Lyft. While it isn’t particularly hard to meet the minimum qualifications, members of the above-mentioned transportation networks are required to pass a preliminary vehicle inspection before they are allowed to drive. While Lyft does not require an in-depth checkup by a licensed mechanic like its main competitor, passing one will nevertheless increase your chances of being approved. Future inspections are also mandatory and must be taken on a yearly basis.
What Points Does The Inspection Cover?
During the inspection, a mechanic will cover an extensive list of both basic and complex potential issues. On each point of the checklist, your vehicle can receive either a ‘pass’ or a ‘fail’ grade. Failure to meet even one of the requirements will result in a failed inspection.
Listed below are the criteria, which must be in full working order to receive a passing score:
- Emergency brake
- Foot brakes
- Suspension and steering
- Indicator Lights
- Condition of tires (including tread depth)
- Front seat adjustment mechanisms
- Brake lights
- Door mechanisms
- Muffler and exhaust system
- Rear view mirrors (interior and exterior)
- Air conditioning
- No fluid leaks
It is also important to remember that the appearance of the vehicle is taken into consideration. Cars with serious cosmetic damage may not be approved.
