What type of licence do I need to rent a campervan in Australia?

Campervan licence requirements

In most cases, you won’t need to present a special type of licence to rent a campervan — you’ll only be asked to present your standard driver’s licence. Keep in mind that your driver licence will need to be valid, meaning your licence can’t be expired, probationary, a learner permit, or a provisional licence. If you’re unsure as to whether your licence will be accepted, you should contact your prospective campervan provider prior to booking.

If you plan on adding additional drivers to the rental agreement, they’ll also need to present a valid licence in their name and meet the same requirements as the primary driver in order to be approved to drive the campervan.

Can I rent a campervan with my foreign driver licence?

If your licence is in a language other than English, you’ll need to provide an International Driving Permit in conjunction with your standard, valid licence at the campervan rental counter.


When renting a campervan in Australia

The primary driver — and any additional drivers — must present a valid driver licence in their name when collecting the vehicle at the rental depot. If your licence is not printed in English, you’ll need an International Driving Permit.
