What kind of licence do I need to drive a campervan in the UK?

All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. If your licence is from the UK, it must entitle you to drive a category B vehicle up to 3,500 kg. If you have demerit points on your licence or any convictions, extra fees or restrictions may apply.

Foreign licences are acceptable if they are in English or are accompanied by an accredited English translation. Otherwise, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required.
