Goedenmiddag, heeft u enig advies of hulp nodig bij het boeken van uw huur auto?

Client

Ja, maar spreekt u ook Engels? My question: Can I rent a car in The Netherlands on a UK licence?

Agent

Yes. You can find the information here:- Permanent driver's license with experience of not less than 1 year, not containing marks on significant offenses. Holders of driving licenses issued in the UK must present a driving license with a photograph. If the text of your driver's license is not written in Latin (for example, Arabic, Greek, Russian or Chinese), you will need to show both international and national driving licenses. In the event that a driver's license is issued in a country that is not a party to the international convention on road traffic, an official translation must be attached to them. When renting within the EU, customers from countries outside the EU must also present an international driving license.

Client

I am resident in the Netherlands. I have BSN number but never updated my UK licence.

Agent

No problem, at the car rental desk they will not ask for your BSN.

Client

Some of my friends said this might be a problem.

Agent

If you can show it along wit your passport its no problem.

Client

OK, thank you for the information.
