  1. Information about an IDP in (your country)

Iceland signed 1949 United Nations conventions, and it is a legal requirement for visitors to have a valid International Driving Permit (IDP) in order to rent a car and legally drive in Iceland. All visitors who plan to drive in Iceland must make sure they obtain an IDP in their home country or country of residence before they travel.

The IDP, which is valid for 1 year, proves that you hold a valid driver’s license in your country of residence. It will also help protect you and your family in the event of an accidental 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.

Similarly, Icelandic nationals and residents who wish to drive abroad, need to apply for an IDP via the Icelandic Automobil Association.
