New Driver Car Hire

Newly qualified driverIf you need to hire car but have held your licence for less than 12 months then you have come to right place. We work with suppliers around the globe who offer ‘New Driver Car Hire’ and the cost is lower than you would think.

Until recently, with the vast majority of suppliers you needed to have held a licence for at least 12 months, 2 years in some locations depending on your age. Now we can offer car hire for newly qualified drivers and the only time restriction is that you must have your licence in your hand, so with a quick postal service you can hire a car less than a week after passing your test.

Other Restrictions Can Apply

Providing you meet the below restrictions, you can hire a car today anywhere in the UK and in some countries abroad.

  • Hold a full, clean, UK licence
  • You are 25+ years old
  • You have a debit or credit card in your own name
  • You are on the electoral roll at your current address*

*if for some reason you do not yet appear on the electoral roll, you can still hire a car but would need to pay for it using a credit card.

Highly recommended, especially for new drivers

One of the very few companies I could find in the UK that have policies for new drivers (licences issued less than 12 months ago). A great company to deal with, helpful and straightforward on the phone, no problems at all. Highly recommended.

Cherie has been amazing during the period I needed a car with short notice
