you go thru the hoops.

you have your drivers permit
your yellow sticker
your DFW sticker

your doing your thing .. your a TNC king!

then for what ever reason you need to see your insurance guy/gal ?

make up a vaild reason to fit this question ..

change of insurance,,
cheaper at xxxxx
someone hits you in the parking lot at work .. not even thinking of a PAX but that sticker is there..

what ever the reason

what happens when they go take pics of your car...( assuming we all/most have full coverage ) ..?

game over at that point ?




picsoff the net..
are our best friends ( the stickers ) now also our worst enemy ?

i mean once branded as a driver.. they surely are not gonna take " i will quit driving" as an answer .. will they?
in their eyes your now a risk....
a risk = higher payments

That's a very good question. I've been weighing looking into the Geico insurance they were offering in TX, but I'm also more deeply weighing my desire to continue doing this. If Uber continues their race to the bottom on rates (which Lyft will have no choice but to follow suit), I'm unlikely to continue trying to keep pace on this ever steepening and accelerating treadmill.

GEICO quoted me around $1800 a year since I was a good credit risk (yeah right). I have heard others say theirs was upwards of $4000 a year.

Is it permissible to put the sticker in a removable pouch? I read that dfw puts the sticker on for you but not sure about the yellow one. I also don't want permanently placed stickers on my windshield.
I do my City of Dallas permit this way, and have never had any problems. It looks just like it is permanently affixed. I've been told that the DFW people apply the stickers personally, which is one of the reasons I haven't gotten one. I already have too much garbage junking up my windshield, and my car is MY CAR. It's not a dedicated taxi.

LaustinAustin, I wonder if USAA offers the rideshare insurance in Dallas? From what I've read, I thought Geico was the only one in this area. I'll definitely give them a call and check it out though!
