Any age limits?
Drivers must be between 25 and 75 years of age and able to produce a full, valid, UK, EU, USA, Canadian, Australian or New Zealand driving licence held for at least twenty four months. It is the driver's responsibility to ensure that he/she has the appropriate driving licence for the type of vehicle rented.
Drivers must not:
have been convicted of a driving offence
have more than 6 points on their licence
have had their driving licence endorsed or suspended
Spent convictions may be disregarded.
Drivers must not have had insurance:
special terms imposed
Drivers must not have been involved in more than one road traffic accident, whilst driving, within the past 3 years
Drivers must not be involved in any way with:
professional sports persons
racing, gaming industry or press
If you hold a photocard type driving licence or an older paper driving licence, you will be required to provide your National Insurance number to complete a driving licence validity and endorsement check at the time of rental commencement. Due to recent DVLA changes the paper counterpart that accompanies the photocard driving licence is no longer valid or legal.
To be able to hire a 7.5 ton vehicle you must have held a full UK drivers licence (category C) prior to 1997 or hold a valid LGV licence, for further information please contact the relevant branch.
To be able to hire a minibus you must have held a full UK drivers licence (category D) prior to 1997 or hold a valid PSV licence.
Drivers aged between 21-25 years are now permitted to rent our self drive vehicles for an additional surcharge of
15.00 per day. Drivers over 21 can drive our small van or panel van providing you have held your licence for 1 year, or you can drive our luton van providing you have held your licence for 3 years. The insurance excess is
1,100.00 and cannot be reduced by taking our excess reduction waiver.
I hope this is of help. for any additional information please call the self drive manager. Regards Mark Lane
