Can I hire a car if I don't have my driving licence?

Should you bring your license with you when hiring a car?

The answer is you are unlikely to be able to hire without it so yes you need to bring it with you - but if it's essential that someone drives and they have forgotten to bring their licence see our faq: What happens if I forget my driving licence?

Remember in most countries you need to have your licence with you when you drive - unlike the UK where you can produce your licence at a police station at a later date.

Additionally, ensure your rental agreement is also in your possession, as this is both proof that you are entitled to drive the car and that you are insured to drive it.
