How to Get an International Driving Permit in Uruguay?


How to Get an International Driving Permit in Uruguay?

The International Driving Permit is issued under current international road traffic regulations established by the 1943 Washington Convention, the 1949 Geneva Convention and the 1968 Vienna Convention, ratified by their contracting parties and deposited with the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Organization of American States.

In Uruguay, the Automóvil Club del Uruguay has been duly authorized to issue the International Driving Permit. This document, which is valid for one year, is proof that you hold a valid national driving licence in your home country, and it is a legal requirement in order to drive a vehicle outside the MERCOSUR area.

The International Driving Permit helps protect you and your family in the event of an accident and/or vehicle damage while driving abroad, or the loss of legal identification such as a passport. The IDP is recognized all over the world and is available in 10 different languages in order to help overcome language barriers.


You need to fill in an application form and bring two passport photographs.

You also need to bring your valid (unexpired) national ID card (cédula de identidad) and national driving licence.
