Can you rent a car with expired driver license?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My driver license expired this month and I can't get it renewed unless I get my work visa which I am not sure about it. The problem is I have to travel and may need to rent a car, Just wonder if the car rental company or U-Haul will let you rent a car with the driver license that is expired for like a month?.

No, legally you can't drive on US roads with an expired license.

I don't think you can even rent it, as they will ask you for the licence of the person that will drive it. But you could make someone rent it, add your name as a second driver, but if the police get you driving, they will handcuff you, and take it ot the police station, a nice pic will be taken, and you will have a nice record later on....not good for the visa later, my advice, take the bus.....

No rent.
But, you can buy a car with expired or no drivers license. Can't get insurance, but you can get a car.

LOL, kind of like you can buy bullets without a waiting period, but not the gun.

We don't need gun control, we need bullet control, as Chris Rock would say. "Every bullet should cost $5000. That way there wouldn't be any innocent bystanders."

Heheh, back on topic. I'm not sure how this is in all states, but for the most part, car rental companies try to pressure you into purchasing their "insurance" coverage for their cars.

Now if you already have your own auto insurance, chances are, you are already covered, and paying for extra "insurance" with the rental company is a waste of money. Some insurance companies offer special rental car coverage, but in California at least, it is sufficient enough to have the usual required liability and medical coverage along with the optional Comprehesive coverage.

But in this case, if something happens, you are then liable just as if it were your own car, so it depends on what your Comprehesive coverage is.
