As discussed with inspector, I was not aware that I'm suppose to obtain records for each Uber/Lyft driver I use. occasionally.
Uber/Lyft.com shows all their drivers meet the stated requriement.
I have updated my transportation policy to reflect the use of Uber/Lyft occassionally and staff will verify DL registration and insurance information each time.
