Driver's License in Philippines

Driver's foreigners on short term visit may rent a car and drive with a valid foreign driver’s license in the Philippines. The license should be a full driver's license held for at least 2 years and with no major endorsements.


If your domestic driver's license is printed 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 the Philippines. 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 the Philippines.

   

Tips


Drivers holding a valid driving licence of the 10 ASEAN member countries can use their national driver's license in the nine other countries without the need to obtain an IDP. These countries are Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines.

 

UK drivers with the new-style photo card license will need both the paper counterpart and photo card. UK license holders who have a paper license only will also need an official photo for identification when driving in Malaysia.

 

Age Requirement


Minimum age in the Philippines is 21 years old (age may vary by car category). The maximum age to rent a car in the Philippines is 65 years. Each car rental company has its own age requirements. If you're 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee.

 

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