International Driving Permits

IDP 2

An International Driving Permit (IDP) offers as a translation and proof that you hold a valid drivers licence in your home country, at the date of issue of the IDP. This must be carried with your valid domestic driver licence for it to be valid. It is a very useful travel document and is required for many countries when renting a vehicle.

Even if you do not intend to drive whilst travelling overseas, an IDP can also be helpful for tourists who may need to identified or assisted. 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 an international driving permit.
