AVIS Car Rental in AVIS Australia

Driver's Licence in Australia

Driver's licence

Foreigners on short term visit may rent a car and drive with a valid foreign driver’s licence for up to 3 months in Australia. Longer than that, you need to get an Australian driving licence from an Australian state.

 

To drive in Australia, the licence should be a full driving licence held for at least 2 years with no major endorsements. Car renters in Tasmania must have held a Full driver's licence for at least 3 years and not be on a provisional licence. Provisional licences are not accepted in Tasmania.

 

If your domestic driving licence is not in English, an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required when you drive in Australia. Please note that an International Driving Permit (often referred to as an International Driving Licence) does not replace the requirement for a regular driving licence. And you must carry your current overseas driver’s licence, IDP or translation with you all the time when driving in Australia.


Tips

Some Australian car rental companies require you to have a photo ID licence. If your foreign licence does not have a photo ID, you should get an IDP before travelling to Australia if you intend to rent a car. UK drivers with the new-style photo card licence will need both the paper counterpart and photo card. UK licence holders who have a paper licence only will also need an official photo for identification when driving in Australia.

 

All states require Australians from other states to get a new state licence after 3 month's residence (with some specific exceptions). Some states also require New Zealanders to get a state driver’s licence after they have been in Australia for 3 months.


Age requirement

To hire a car in Australia you must be at least 21 years old (age may vary by car category). There is no maximum driving age in Australia, however, a medical certificate is recommended for drivers over 75 years old. Ultimately, it is the location's decision if they will rent to a person over the age of 75. In Tasmania, drivers 75 years and over must present a medical certificate at the time of pickup. Each car hire company has its own age requirements. If you're 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee. If you're 65 or older, you may have to pay a senior driver fee.

 

*Attention! Some car hire companies would have different requirements. Please check Terms and Conditions during the booking process.


Driver's licence

To drive in Australia, the licence should be a full driving licence held for at least 2 years with no major endorsements. Car renters in Tasmania must have held a Full driver's licence for at least 3 years and not be on a provisional licence. Provisional licences are not accepted in Tasmania.


If your domestic driver's licence is not in English, an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required together with your driver's licence when you drive in Australia.

AVIS in Hobart

At the Hobart International Airport in Australia, no one, the formalities quickly. But when the car again and again to me stressed that if they do not buy insurance companies, they have to pay a $3000 accident compensation. I have told them to buy insurance, but she told me not their company, but they will not recognize, I got to drive carefully, the heart very worried. In the rental car to buy insurance, do not know really hurt, will not claim a lot of trouble. The car is very new, more than 10 thousand km. Also the car is super fast.
