Can my wife who has no drivers license make a car rental reservation and add me - who does have a license - as an additional?

My wife is already 25 but I'm not, so if this works it would be great.

Any idea if this would work?

Ok,

Question #2.
Does the primary renter need to present at the location when picking up/dropping off the car or that can be done by the additional driver?

Pickup location: JFK or surrounding areas
Drop Off location: Same
Pickup date & time: Jul 1 in the morning
Drop Off Date & Time Jul 8 in the afternoon
Preferred Car Size: Standard
Age (if under 25): 21
Best quote: ~250-300

Alternatively, if I could find a good deal on a long term rental for 2 months I'd be very happy. As it is the underage fees are super high.

If  you are referring to using the code on National or Avis it comes out to more.  Enterprise is slightly less but still no great bargain.  Thanks.
