Recently passed pupil wants to hir a car

Pupil recently passed test and wants to hire a car in the summer for a week. Any ideas if he should go to an independent car hire company or the big ones. Do they have restrictions on how long you need to have held your licence etc? He is early thirties and has been riding a moped for 7 years.

Any companies you know of would be good. Based in West London.

Thanks in advance

Re: Recently passed pupil wants to hir a car

I think you will find that most car hire companies require the driver to have held a full licence for at least 12 months.

Re: Recently passed pupil wants to hir a car

My first thought was the same as whodareswins, but then I wondered if I was out of date and things had got easier. Quite the reverse! Just picking Avis at random, they say:

"You will need a full driving licence that covers the vehicle rented by you. For rentals in the UK, the licence will need to have been held for at least 36 months at the time of rental"

No doubt some of the smaller companies will have less stringent conditions: he needs to shop around.

BTW why is he asking you? Hasn't he heard of the internet? wink
