Those with international driving licenses should apply as normal, and if additional information is needed, we will reach out to you. HOURCAR does not charge additional fees to process non-Minnesotan driving licenses. All fees are non-refundable. Driving credit cannot be used to pay state and local taxes or fees.
Effective March 31, 2023, HOURCAR will be adjusting rates and membership plans to address system demands and overall increased expenses, including operational costs, fuel costs, and vehicle replacement needs. These rate adjustments primarily impact the HOURCAR service. There will also be a small adjustment to the Evie Carshare day rate; Evie per-minute and hourly rates will remain the same.
