Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Birmingham?

If you're interested in car hire in Birmingham, you’ll need a full valid driving licence as well as photographic ID, such as a passport. For non-UK residents, you may need to show proof of return travel, as well as residency information for whilst in the UK. Legally, you can drive in the UK with a non-UK licence for up to 12 months. If your licence isn’t fully printed in English, you’ll need to provide an international driving permit. Additionally, if you’re planning to use your hire car in Birmingham to leave the UK via the Channel, you may need an international driving permit – it’s best to confirm directly with your supplier. The minimum age for car hire in Birmingham, like the rest of the UK, is 23. Age restrictions also vary by vehicle, so some cars may not be available to drivers under 25.

What are the rules for driving in Birmingham?

For those of you using car hire in Birmingham, be aware that, like the rest of the UK, you’ll drive on the left-hand side of the road. From June 2021, the city launched a Clean Air Zone, operating 24 hours a day, all year. If your vehicle isn’t compliant, you’ll have to pay a daily charge. It’s best to check directly with your hire company about which vehicles are allowed to enter the zone and which may incur a fine. Speed limits within the city are usually 20 mph, and sometimes 30 mph. For streets with one lane in each direction, the limit is 60 mph, and for those with two lanes in each direction or on motorways, the limit is 70 mph. All passengers must wear seat belts, and for anyone driving with children aged 12 and under, you must also ensure they’re in the correct car seat for their height and weight.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Birmingham?

For anyone looking to park their car hire in Birmingham, you have a variety of options, as the city has around 24,000 parking spots.
