What is an International Driving Permit (IDP)?
An International Driving Permit (also known as International Driving Licence) is a document containing official translation of your national driving licence. It is issued through worldwide network of AIT/FIA organisations, duly authorized by their governments to issue IDPs. Most countries require visitors to have an IDP if they want to drive outside of their home country. Having an IDP means you are able to drive in foreign countries without the need for further tests or applications. In order to obtain an IDP, you must apply before you travel in the same country that issued you a national driving license. IDP is an addition, not a replacement of your national driving licence. In order to drive abroad, you must carry your IDP along with your national driving license at all times.
IDP comes with additional benefit and can also act as an official ID. It means you do not have to carry your passport with you everywhere you go while in a foreign country, because your IDP is also a valid form of identity.
