What are your driver's licence requirements for renting in the UK and Ireland?

 

All drivers must present a full valid driving license. If the driving license is written in a language and characters different to those of the country of rental, an International Driving Permit is also required. Renters are advised to check whether local authorities require foreign drivers to present an International Driving Permit to avoid the risk of potential fines. Renters with licenses from countries who are not part of the International Driving Permit Agreement should carry a certified translation.

Please note that we reserve the right to request additional ID or conduct further identification checks if needed which may include an identity check with an external  organisation.

Upon the United Kingdom leaving the European Union (EU) the requirements for UK Driving license holders driving in EU member states may change. Please check requirements before travelling. Government advice may be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/prepare-to-drive-in-the-eu-after-brexit
