A very boring question about renting a car.
March 5, 2009 8:56 AM   Subscribe

I have a valid German drivers license which I have held for less than one year. I also have an expired US drivers license that I drove with for 8 years. How much of a hassle am I going to run into renting a car in the US?

I've read that car rental companies require their customers to have a valid drivers license issued more than one year prior. I don't have that, but I do have a valid drivers license and an expired license that shows that I have been driving for more than one year. Is this going to turn into trouble at the rental car desks?

Just bring both. You'll be fine.

That, or just call the company you plan to rent a car from.

I have a Canadian driver's license which was less than one year old when I rented a car in the US last year. You should call the company for a definitive answer, however.

If you are in California, great. California accepts foreign driver's licenses
