It depends on whether or not the rental car company knows about your reckless driving conviction. If the rental car company knows about your reckless driving conviction, then it may not allow you to rent a car.
How Rental Car Companies Learn About Reckless Driving Convictions
A rental car company can find out about your reckless driving conviction by:
- Checking your driving record when you provide your driver’s license
- Asking you to disclose any driving-related conviction when you sign your rental car agreement
It is important to provide your valid driver’s license and to tell the truth when you sign the rental car contract. Providing a fake driver’s license or lying on a contract could get you in additional legal trouble.
