I'm still not 100% certain if this is the current state of affairs with regard to driving but this link (from the Brasilian Consulate in Beirut no less)might be of use:

http://www.cgbrasil.org/Templates/In...?PostingId=325

In particular the clause discussing notarised translations of your licence and ID document

§ 3º O condutor de que trata o caput deste artigo deverá portar a carteira de habilitação estrangeira, dentro do prazo de validade, acompanhada da respectiva tradução juramentada e do seu documento de identificação, devidamente reconhecida mediante registro junto ao órgão ou entidade executivo de trânsito dos Estados ou do Distrito Federal.

I have rented in Brasil a couple of times since this was gazetted in 2006 and not been asked to provide these documents when renting a car.

You'll have to ask a native to translate it as a gringo such as I could not possibly have Portuguese language ability and reading those darn Brasilian regulations without my Mr Magoo specs is near impossible.
