Counterpart Drivers License ChangesOn June 8 2015, the paper counterpart to the UK driver¿s licence is being abolished. From then, Avis Budget Group will not require customers to present this when collecting their rental vehicle. This change is taking place during one of our busiest seasons, so to make sure our customers do not face any disruption, anyone collecting their vehicle from one of our UK stores will only need to bring their photocard licence.
U.K. residents must provide a U.K. driver's license; an international driver's license is not acceptable.
It is a legal requirement for any non-U.K. citizen to obtain a U.K. driver's license if they will be driving in the U.K. for a period exceeding 3 months; after this period, an international driver's license is not acceptable.
New U.K. License
Customers holding the new U.K. license must show the two-part license. If only the photo ID portion is shown, the customer must
pay UKL 5 to cover the cost of contacting the DVLA to ensure that the customer is entitled to drive.
