- Car hire in America
I’m going to be the only driver on a 10 day holiday in the US next month. Flights booked and really looking forward to it..
The problem is I only passed my driving test a few months ago, and I’m told you can’t rent a car unless you’ve been driving for at least a year. 😯
Is this true? If so, has anyone got experience of buying a banger or doing car delivery over there?Posted 6 years agoPigfaceMember
Done car delivery but you will be very lucky if it fits in exactly with your dates.
Bought a truck in Texas and couldnt sell it due to not having an insurance certificate. I didn’t know anything about this but got very lucky when a friend of a friend helped me out. Dont know what the rules are in other states.Posted 6 years agojota180Member
Not heard of a restriction on how long you need to have held a licence only a minimum age 
I’ve used carhire3000.com a few times without issue
They’re just a broker for the big rental companies
top tip – buy whatever addons and insurance you want upfront and flatly refuse everything they try to get you to take when you pick it up
EDIT from Car3000s website

All drivers must hold a full and valid Driving licence issued outside USA & Canada . Unfortunately it is not possible to rent this vehicle on this package with a licence issued in the USA & Canada. [/i]
