Find your hired 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 hire companies all over the city. The car hire offering in the city leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. However, the most convenient way to equip yourself with your dream vehicle is hiring 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 hired car. Nonetheless, numerous car hire 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 under the influence of alcohol is one of the most serious offences in the state of California. The blood alcohol limit is 0.08%.

Driving a hired 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.

Leave the city limits and explore the region around Los Angeles. A hired car will grant you the freedom to go exploring in whichever direction you want. You can start with the beautiful pristine beaches and Mediterranean-like climate of the coastline, which will allow you to feel an endless summer on your skin.

You can also visit Venice Beach or the idyllic Long Beach, where you will find some relief from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

Santa Barbara, also referred to as the American Riviera, is another spot for those who enjoy long hours spent in the sun. The city offers a wide selection of tourist attractions ranging from extensive gardens to interesting art galleries.

For those who are into old Hollywood glamour, Palm Springs is a must-see attraction. In the 1930s, it was a top winter resort visited by such great performers as Marlene Dietrich and Frank Sinatra.

Joshua National Park should be included on your holiday to-visit list if you are a lover of vast open spaces. The park was named after the interesting yucca trees that flourish within its limits. This natural gem offers a wide selection of outdoor activities suitable for those seeking an active holiday.
