Driver's License in Mexico

To rent a car in Mexico, most car rental companies require a full driving licence held for a minimum of 2 years with no major endorsements.


If your domestic driver's license is not in English (Arabic, Japanese, Cyrillic etc), an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required when you drive in Mexico.


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 Mexico.


Age Requirement


Minimum age to rent a car in Mexico is 21 years (age may vary by car rental company and car category). If you're 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee. If you're 65 or older, you may have to pay a senior driver fee.

 

*Attention! Some car rental companies would have different requirements. Please check Terms and Conditions during the booking process.
