Top tips for hiring a car in New Jersey

  • To hire a vehicle in New Jersey, you need to present a valid driver's licence, a passport, a credit or debit card and proof of Insurance. The driving licence should bear the hirer’s name and photograph. Foreigners may be required to present an International Driving Permit if their native driving licence is not in English. Please keep in mind that while car hire is available all year round, the holiday season can cause higher demand and additional fees may apply if it gets too busy at one time or another.
  • Ensure you’re up to date with the latest traffic laws and regulations in New Jersey, to keep yourself and other road users safe. For instance, if you are on a street or highway with several lanes, remain in the right lane unless overtaking. Also, beware of various speed limits; in general, the city’s speed limit is 25 mph (40 km/h), whereas the suburban speed limit is generally 35 mph (56 km/h). It’s usually 75 mph (120 km/h) on highways. Given that speed limits may change depending on your current location, be on the lookout for posted signage. In NJ, pedestrians always have the right of way.
