Secrets for Passing Your International Driver’s License Driving Test
Just kidding, there’s no driving test.
If you want to be in command of your own schedule when you travel, the best way is to get an international driving permit and see your destination country on your own schedule.
Your state issued driver’s license in the United States won’t be recognized as a valid instrument for operating a vehicle in another country. That’s where an International Driving Permit (IDP) comes in.
There is no special test required to obtain an IDP. You will need to be a legally licensed driver in the United States. Most foreign governments will allow you to legally operate a vehicle in their country. The minimum age to get an IDP is 18 years of age. An IDP is good for one year from the issue date.
If you aren’t sure that you’ll be able to use an IDP during your travels, contact our office and we can give you the latest information on the validity of using an IDP in the country or countries you plan on traveling to.
