IS IT LEGAL DRIVING RENTAL CARS

Yes it is. Here is why! In California in order to drive rental vehicles you need a TCP License. Ours is TCP 31148 B. You have to carry a minimum of a 1 million dollar liability insurance. We have that. Ours is with Lloyds of London.  This is in addition to have individual insurance policy on each of our cars. There are only a handful of legal Driving companies that are licensed to drive Rental vehicles.

Most of the illegal Designate Driver companies try to get you to let them sign on your insurance at the Rental Car agencies. If he/she gets in an accident god forbid, and kills someone you could be on the hook. Ask yourself what are you saving by hiring that illegal driving company?

To Do List Checking Driving Companies For Legitimacy.

  1. Ask the driving company if they have a TCP License from the CPUC of California
  2.  If you choose to use an illegal driving company please ask the driver to bring a copy of a current DMV report regarding his/her license. You want them to have a license correct? Also notify your insurance carrier you intend to use an illegal driving company. You have a duty to protect your insurance. If you do not believe that statement please ask your agent.
  3. It is a requirement for anyone to have insurance to drive anyones vehicle even if your insurance follows you or your car.
  4. Ask them if they have done drug testing and have there clearance to drive.
  5. Would you let a non-licensed building contractor build your house?

Here is the links for the CPUC to prove you need a TCP License to drive rental cars.
