Vehicle Code 14608 prohibits a car rental agency from renting a car unless the renter presents a facially valid California driver’s license or a facially valid driver’s license from the non-California jurisdiction in which the renter resides.  The statute also requires the rental agency to check either the signatures on the license and the rental agreement or the picture on the license with the renter’s appearance.  This decision holds, however, that the rental agency is not obliged to make any additional investigation, and therefore cannot be held liable because it didn’t inquire further when presented with a foreign license after the renter gave a California address on the rental agreement.
