    DRIVING LICENCES IN SOUTH AFRICA
    ===============================

    IT IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT THAT YOU HAVE YOUR DRIVING LICENCE WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES
    ==================================================================================

    Obviously you must have a VALID driving licence to hire any vehicle. The South African requirements are as follows -

    1 - If you have a current valid UK, PHOTOCARD Pink Plastic licence, that usually is enough. However some smaller car hire companies require an International Driving Permit for their insurance company. South African Law requires the International Driving Licence to be printed in English.

    2- If you have a GREEN, old style paper licence, that is also ok, however it is strongly recommended you have a International Driving Licence to support it.This has your details on it plus a photo of yourself. It is the PHOTO that is the key thing.

    3- International Driving licence is available in the UK from the AA / Post Office .This licence will have your personal details on it together with a passport photo of yourself. Please visit - www.theaa.com and click on Travel then Travel Advice. You can apply in person at any major post office in the UK.

    NOTE - : NEW SPEEDING FINES WITH EFFECT FROM 1st OCTOBER 2007. Please see DRIVING INFORMATION CATEGORY in Info & Lifestyle section for full details.
