An International Driving Permit (IDP) is proof that you hold a valid driver licence in your home country at the date of issue of the IDP. This should be carried with your domestic driver licence. It is a very useful travel document and is required or recommended for many countries when hiring a motor vehicle
For non-English drivers licence holders, an international drivers licence is required for all countries worldwide. Please note you can get fined by the local police if you do not have a international driving permit.
IDPs are issued through state and territory motoring clubs and the cost to obtain one ranges from about $25 to $50.
