Driver's License Concern

Jump to last reply

During my trip to Greece this July, my friend and I will definitely want to be renting ATVs and/or cars. We are both 27 years old and have both had our driver's licenses since we were 16 (that's 11 years if anyone's counting).

OK, so, my big concern is this: upon researching the requirements to rent a car/ATV/moped/whatever, a very common condition I have seen is that "The Driver must hold a valid car driver's license for at least 1 year" or "for 6 months."

This is totally confusing and worrisome to someone like me who recently had to renew my license, just last month in fact. As most of you know, your driver's license isn't good for forever, and you have to renew every few years. That time just happened to be last month for me, and my friend had to have hers renewed just last November. From the face of our driver's licenses, they're "valid from" May 2014 and November 2013, although of course we have both been continually licensed for more than a decade now.

Could this seriously be a problem? Am I somehow being overly literal and will the rental companies be more relaxed? I would imagine they must run into this situation all the time, and I understand not wanting to rent to someone who just got their license for the first time...but enforcement of such a bright line rule against those of us who've been licensed for years and years and just happened to get a renewal recently seems unreasonable.

Any help? Unfortunately if we aren't able to rent cars or ATVs, it'll present a really big problem.
