Are you lending or renting your vehicle to someone? Is that person's driver's licence valid?
Before lending or renting your vehicle to someone, take the time to check whether that person has a valid driver's licence. If your vehicle is stopped by a police officer, it can be immediately seized for a period of 30 days if the licence of the person driving the car is not valid.
