Now for the legal part... Yes, we all have to be grown up's at some stage... This is that stage:
Please don't forget that this is a vehicle rental, so, naturally, there are a few hoops we all need to jump through for insurance and the like.
In brief, we need to see a full clean drivers license (including the paper bit) which will be run through a DVLA check to make sure you're not a reprobate of the road; two proofs of address (utility bills, not mobile phone bills, they don't count... We're talking, electricity bills, bank Statement, that sort of thing), and an additional form of photographic ID, so we'll already see the driving license, so maybe a passport would be an obvious second?
