Drivers Licence - Car/Motor Home Rental

Hi,

I am visiting Australia next month. I am a 30 year old male with a Full Irish Driving Licence but I only have my full licence for the past 7 months. Will this hinder me with car hire and camper van hire? Do some companies require you to have a full licence for 1 or 2 years at least?

Thanks

it doesn't look like it.

here is what britz say about licences:

Do I need a special licence to drive the Britz?

No, all you need to drive your Britz is a full (non-probationary) resident country driver’s licence. If your licence is not in an English format, we also need to see a valid International Drivers licence.

How old do I need to be to drive the Britz?

Drivers must be 21 years of age or over. If you are over the age of 75 years, a medical certificate is required at time of vehicle collection stating you are medically fit to operate a motor vehicle.

You'll be grand, I'd say. I've never had a rental company check how long I've had my licence.
