You also must have a valid United States driver’s license from any of the 50 states. If you are not a US citizen and you would like to rent a car in Minnesota, you will need to present your valid driver’s license along with your International Driver’s Permit.

What are some things I need to know to drive in Minnesota?

Car rental in Minnesota requires you to know the rules of the road unique to this state. The maximum speed in Minnesota is 70mph, although the speed limits will vary by county and city, so it is a good idea to always be looking out for signs. Everyone in the car must wear a seatbelt at all times and children under eight years old are required to ride in a booster seat. It is illegal in Minnesota to throw garbage from your car, and it is also illegal to text while driving. In fact, using your mobile phone is illegal unless it is hands-free.

For example, in larger cities such as Minneapolis, you will probably want a compact car or even an electric car rental. You can find charging stations for electric cars across the city. A compact car would be best for the cities because it will be easier to navigate and narrow lanes or parking spaces. If you are visiting northern Minnesota, especially during the winter season, you may want to look for a cheap car rental in Minnesota like an SUV.
