As someone who is under 21, is it possible to work as a rideshare driver?

I just checked Uber and Lyft, and they don't seem to accept anyone under 21.  Are there rideshare companies that follow a different rule?  or is this a law or something?

    You must be 21 years of age or older (23 in some cities). The intended driver is required to be on the insurance for the vehicle used.

    The driver must have at least three years of driving experience.

    The vehicle must be fit to pass an Uber inspection.

    Actually, even being 21 may not be good enough to drive for Uber.  They require 3 years of driving history, so it basically means you had to have started driving when you were 18.

    I don't think any company would break this rule, as I believe it has something to do with liability and insurance.

    Someone else mentioned this but you can do food delivery like UberEATS, DoorDash, Postmates, right?

    ...or Charger for Birds and bicycle delivery?

    I believe you, instead of driving people, can drive food items around.   UberEats' minimum age is 18.
