Need for the Document

An International Driving Permit (IDP) is an internationally recognised document that allows an individual to drive overseas. Requirement for an IDP varies from country to country but it's recognised in most countries. It will be good to hold an IDP especially if you are planning to drive in a country where English is not a native language since an IDP is a translation of your local licence into many languages. Following is a procedure on how you can apply for one.

Information which might help

Things to remember when you are abroad:

  • For security reasons it will be better if you keep your IDP and your driver's licence separately when travelling.
  • If you become a permanent resident in another country, you will need to apply for a local driver's licence.

Other uses of the Document/Certificate

You may need to present an IDP when renting a car abroad.
