An International Driving Permit (IDP) is a special driving licence that allows motorists to drive vehicles in other countries without further tests or applications. If you are traveling overseas and wish to drive in another country, you may require an international driving permit.
Even if you do not intend to drive when traveling overseas you should carry an IDP because it will provide you with an extra photo identification. If you should need to communicate with foreign authorities, this recognizable form of identification can help you get on your way more quickly. The IDP is valid in over 150 countries, the permit contains your name, photo and driver license information translated into ten languages (English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, German, Arabic, Italian, Scandinavian and Portuguese).
