SpeedLists featured in Need for Speed: Rivals are a series of goals and tasks that build up the illegal racing career of which the player takes on the role of Zephyr.

The player is rewarded with a vehicle upon completing a speedlist from each rank of their racer career. Each rank speedlist offers a vehicle for completing a single list, and an additional livery for completing the remaining two lists.

The first 20 ranks must be completed in sequential order. The player is given the option to choose one of three SpeedLists for each rank and will be awarded with the vehicle associated with the rank. Players can change their current assignment at any point before completion via a Hideout.

Players can not accept assignments from ranks they have previously completed until they complete SpeedList 20. Completing SpeedLists from previous ranks will unlock additional liveries.

The police career offers assignments in place of speedlists.
