Can I hire a rental car in Cambridge if I am under 25?
Most car companies in the UK require drivers to be between the ages of 25 and 70 in order to hire a car. However, some companies
do rent to drivers in the 21-25 age bracket but with additional conditions.
These can include restrictions on the choice of cars and an additional young
driver fee. If you fall into this bracket, make the booking in the usual way and
include in the comments area any questions you may have and the DriveNow
Reservations team will chase this up on your behalf.
What kind of Driving license is required in the UK?
If your licence is printed in English then you are permitted to use it to drive on British roads for a 12 month period.
However, if your licence is printed in another language, you may require an International Drivers Permit (IDP) alongside your original licence.
What are the speed limits in the UK?
Across all UK countries - England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales - the speed limits are uniform. They are measured in miles per hour, miles being the standard unit of measurement for distance and speed in these areas.
So, unless otherwise stated, you need to drive 70mph along motorways, 60mph along major highways and 30mph when you're in urban traffic.
If you are on a motorway, the speed limit will be 70mph. For major highways, the limit is 60mph and in urban areas you don't want to exceed 30mph unless otherwise signposted. Speed limits across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are uniform and enforced with speed cameras.
Seatbelts are required, and if you have children under 12 years old or less than 135 cm high, they must be fitted into a child booster seat. This can be included in your rental car booking.
What other rules should I be aware of?
In the UK, wearing seat belts is mandatory. It is also necessary to fit your child out with an appropriate booster seat if they are under age 12 or less than 135cm tall. These seats can be included as part of your car rental. Have a chat to the team when you pick up your rental car in Cambridge,
but best to book this when you make your online booking as supply can dry up.
Handheld mobile phone use is also prohibited in the UK so it is best to switch off completely or use a hands-free device.
