HiyaCar does not facilitate car hires for anyone under 23 years of age.

UK Licences

Drivers aged between 23-24 years old must have had their driving license for at least 24 months, a clean licence and will be restricted to cars up to insurance group 29. 

Drivers 25+ must have at least 12 months driving history and can have up to 6 points though they may be referred to our insurance partner depending on the driving conviction. 

Drivers under 30 will be restricted to cars by insurance group. 

  • Group 30 – Min age 25  
  • Group 31 – Min age 26  
  • Group 32 – Min age 27  
  • Group 33 – Min age 28  
  • Group 34 – Min age 29  
  • Group 35-44 – Min age 30

The insurance premium is calculated based on the Drivers age, driving history and type of car they wish to hire and is clearly visible on the booking quote.

Criteria:

  • Pass our standard identity verification
  • Provide a selfie of yourself with your licence 📸
  • Provide pictures of the front and back of your licence 

EU Licences

If you have an EU licence and a registered UK address then you can hire a car as long as you pass criteria. 

Criteria

  • Pass our standard identity verification
  • Provide a selfie of yourself with your licence 📸
  • Provide pictures of the front and back of your licence 

If you have under 12 months driving history then you will be referred to our insurance providers. 

International Licences 

If you have an International driving licence and a registered UK address you may still be able to hire. 

Criteria:

  • Over 25 years old
  • Over 24 months driving history
  • Pass our standard identity verification
  • Provide a selfie of yourself with your licence 📸
  • Provide pictures of the front and back of your licence 

You will then be referred to our insurance partners who will confirm if they will insure your risk for the duration of the rental. 

Currently, if you do not have a UK address then we are unable to allow you to hire a car though we will be looking at opening this up to residents of other countries sometime in 2017.
