Many travelers interested in renting a car have questions about the various car hire policies, and one of the policies that often comes up for our customer support chat specialists is our Driving License Policy.  Here at we want to make our policies easy to access and are more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

At Least 1 Year

If you're studying for your driving test because you have a big road trip planned for next season and you want to rent a car we have bad news for you: all car hire drivers must hold a full license for a minimum of 1 year with no major endorsements.

Roman Alphabet Only

One commonly unknown aspect of the car rental Driver's License Policy is that you must have a license that is in Roman Alphabet in order to rent a car from  Therefore, if your driver's license is in Arabic, Greek, Russian or Chinese you will need to also carry an International Driver's License.

Don't Forget Your Papers in the UK

UK license holders need to bring both their driver's license photocard as well as its paper counterpart when they pick up their car rental.  Lastly, you will need to have a proof of home address to rent a car as well.
