Renting a car in Punta del Este

We’re going traveling to Punta at the end of November for a couple of days and we’d like to rent a car. Problem is, my South Africa drivers license card got stolen recently, and so I only have a temporary South African drivers license. The temporary license states that I’ve had a drivers license since 2004 and it is valid for 6 months still.

The new card will only be ready in 6 weeks, way too late. Will car rental agencies accept a temporary drivers license? Would it help if I bring my “old” and “expired” license card with the temporary license?

Really want to rent a car as I think we’ll miss out on a lot of experiences without one.
