You don’t have to be at the mercy of other people, the public transportation system, or taxis when you travel internationally. If you have a valid U.S. driver’s license and you are over 18-years of age, you just qualified for an International Driver’s License.

Why get an International Driving Permit?
If you want to be in command of your own time when you travel, the best way is to get an international driving permit and see your destination country on your own schedule.

I have a driver’s license here in the U.S., can’t I just use that to rent a car overseas?
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.

Where do I take the driver’s test?
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.

I’m 19 and a licensed driver, can I get an International Driver’s License?
Yes! The minimum age to get an IDP is 18 years of age.

How long is an IDP good for after issuance?
An IDP is good for one year from the issue date.

How can I check to see if the country I am traveling to will allow me to use an IDP?

You do need to be a licensed driver in the United States in order to possess driving priveledges in foreign countries, however, you don’t have to take a driving test. The minimum age is 18-years and as long as your driver’s license is valid in the United States, you will be able to qualify for an IDP.
