Driver's License in Austria

All licenses issued in the European Union are accepted. 


Driver's licenses from non-EU countries (except Switzerland) are accepted if you have a visa in your passport and at the time of rental have not been in Europe for longer than 6 months. Longer than that, you need to get a driver's license from an EU country.

 

If your domestic driver's license is printed with non Roman Alphabet (Arabic, Japanese, Cyrillic etc), an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required when you drive in Austria. Please note that an International Driving Permit (often referred to as an International Driver's license) does not replace the requirement for a regular driver's license. And you must carry your current overseas driver’s license, IDP or translation with you all the time when driving in Austria.


To drive in Austria, the driver must present a valid national driver's license that has been held for at least 1 or 2 years (according to different car rental company).

 

Tips


Some car rental companies require you to have a photo ID licence. If your foreign licence does not have a photo ID, you should get an IDP before travelling to Portugal if you intend to rent a car. UK drivers with the new-style photo card licence will need both the paper counterpart and photo card. UK licence holders who have a paper license only will also need an official photo for identification when driving in Austria.

 

Age Requirement


To rent a car in Portugal you must be at least 18 years old (age may vary by car category). Each car rental company has its own age requirements and a deviation from the minimum age is possible depending on the vehicle. If you're 19-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee.
