You must have a driving licence issued within the EU / EEA / Switzerland to be able to rent a car from SIXT share. We regret that driving licences issued in other countries are not accepted. An additional requirement is that you have been in possession of your driving licence for at least one year and that the driving licence is valid for at least another 28 days.
You can validate your driving licence from the comfort of your own home, using the online validation procedure with video identification. As soon as you select the SIXT share vehicle you want, you will be forwarded directly to the activation/validation process when you first try to rent that vehicle. The online validation itself takes the form of a video call. The whole process is completed in just a few minutes. If you still have an old non-digital driving licence (grey in colour in Germany) or would simply prefer to have your licence validated in person, this is also an option with one of our team at a hvv service point. You can find the nearest one to you here.
You can change your PIN in the hvv switch app. Simply go to your profile and select "Change hv switch PIN".
To be able to rent and drive cars you first need to have verified your e-mail address and saved information such as your title, full name, registered address, and date of birth. You also need to enter and save a mobile number and your preferred method of payment.
You have to be at least 21 years old to use SIXT share. The information on your driving licence must be entered and saved in the app (driving licence requirements can be found here).
The validation process ensures that your details are correct and up to date. You can find out about your validation options and how validation works here.
