    Car hire on foreign/new UK licence 24th Feb 11 at 8:54 AM
    Hi,

    My girlfriend would like to hire a car in the UK later this year. She has many years of driving experience but has a foreign licence that is non-exchangeable. She has been resident here for over a year, so cannot drive here.

    If she were to get a UK licence and pass a UK driving test, would a car hire company rent a car to her? I know that they normally require 12 months of driving experience; she would have more than that on her foreign licence, but less than that on her UK licence.
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks
    On a rotating plate, with spikes like Flash Gordon
    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning
