Find your rental car for a voyage around Los Angeles

Road in Los Angeles

On the road in Los Angeles

Los Angeles offers an extensive choice of car rental companies all over the city. The car rental offering in the city leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. However, the most convenient way to equip yourself with your dream vehicle is renting a car at the airport. Los Angeles Airport (LAX) is situated 19.6 miles (31.5 km) from the city centre. Many travellers also choose to arrive at Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) located 16.2 miles (26 km) from L.A.

Do I need an international driver's license to hire a car in Los Angeles?

Fortunately, the US has entered into an agreement with most EU countries. This guarantees that your national driver's license is enough to move around Los Angeles in a rental car. Nonetheless, numerous car rental companies require their clients to present an international driver's license, so it is better to apply far ahead of your trip in order to avoid any obstacles if you encounter a delay.

Speed limits in Los Angeles

Speed limits in Los Angeles are posted on road signs in miles per hour (mph). On multilane freeways, the speed limit is 65 mph (105 km/h). When it comes to two-lane highways, the speed limit is 55 mph (90 km/h). The speed limit that you need to observe on city streets is usually 35 mph (55 km/h). However, it is important to remember that residential areas and areas around schools have different speed limits—these are usually 25 mph (40 km/h).

Additional information concerning driving in Los Angeles

  • Californian law forbids writing, sending, and reading text messages while driving. However, drivers are allowed to use hands-free devices while talking on the phone.
  • In California, carpool lanes can be identified by the special diamond-shaped pattern painted on the road. In addition, there is always a black-and-white sign detailing when you are allowed to use these lanes (usually on weekdays during rush hours). However, remember that there must be at least two people (including the person driving the vehicle) in the car. Using the lane when you do not have the required number of passengers will result in high fines of up to $ 400. Carpool lanes in California possess specific entry and exit zones that have to be observed as well.
  • In order to report an accident or get help, you should call 911.
  • The driver and any passengers are required to wear seatbelts.

Driving a rental car behind a school bus

When you’re driving in the US and see one of the famous yellow school buses in front of you, you must stop for as long as the driver has the stop sign out. Passing by, even at a slower pace, is not allowed and is punishable with large fines.
