I am going to Kavos this summer and I was wondering if I could rent a quad bike with a provisional licence? Has anyone done this before?
No, you can’t rent one.
Nope!! you have to have a full driving licence before they will let you hire one.
I hope not.
Yep afraid so Matt R unless they want to risk losing their business or worse then it would be foolish of them to risk hiring to anyone with only a provisional. Also remember you need to check your travel insurance to see if you would be covered or pay the additional fee to make sure you are. I have witnessed some terrible accidents believe me.
G410ZHmichelleb, I didn't really make myself clear - I hope that they will not rent to someone with a provisional, it's asking for trouble for them and road users around them!
Even the ones with licences are dangerous enough - we see so many people inviting trouble, especially where fathers & sons are involved.
We met a couple at the hospital a few weeks ago who had gone off the road in north-east Corfu - and they were almost casual victims. She had broken her shoulder, he had broken both wrists & his elbow. They had one good hand between them! In addition to all the bruising, they were both in pain, it had wrecked their holiday, their bags were back at their accommodation, they were hospitalised and confused, their holiday was at an end, they needed permission to be able to fly, and they both needed operations when they returned to the UK.
Is it worth it?
Not on your nelly.
