Hi! To be able to drive in Nicaragua you need a *Valid Driver's License* from your country of origin, No Foreign Driver's permit required (& I think it's actually not even recognized here.) I hope that helps! Cheers.

Hi! Thank you for your question. There is no legal requirement when it comes to age, but the driver must have a full, valid, driver's license. I hope that helps. Cheers!
