Posted: 21/02/13

Hiring a van in Doncaster is easy but there are some essential items you will need to use our service.

Are you thinking of hiring a van? If so, you’ve come to the right place. If you’ve never actually been through the hire process before you may be confused about what you will need or if you’re able to legally drive a van. Luckily, Exchange Hire are happy to guide you through this.

A Full UK Drivers License

You must be 23 years and over and held a valid Driving Licence for a minimum of 24 months or be 25+ with a minimum of 12 months driving experience. Non-EU driving licences may require an additional check just to confirm our insurance will cover you.

Photo Driving License or paper style license
You must produce either your Photo Driving License or paper style license, however please note that the paper counterpart was abolished on the 8th June 2015. All driving records are now digitally stored by the DVLA. If you do not have your Paper Part License please be aware we will need your National Insurance Number to fully check your License online.

Two further forms of identification
We require a passport and one proof of address confirming your current address (i.e. bank/credit card statements, utility bills) Bills must be dated within the past 3 months. Printed online utility bills are acceptable providing that they show current address and recent date. Should your passport be out of date, we will accept two bills as proof of address.

A deposit
£100 Deposit is payable before hire commences, refundable upon return.
