International Driving Permit

What is the International Drivers Permit?

International Driver’s Permit (or International Driver’s License) is a document that allows you to travel anywhere in the world easily and confidently. However, it is supplementary and should not be used instead of your valid country’s driving permit since this is only a translation. The International Driving Permit is legally effective for up to three years. It consists of a plastic ID card, a leaflet with the translation into 29 languages and a mobile application for Android and iOS.

What is IDA?

International Driving Authority (IDA) is an organization that translates national driving licenses into 29 world languages and provide you with an International Driving Permit consistent with UN requirements for the size, format and colour of the document.

The procedure of obtaining the International Driving License is pretty simple. All you need is to provide the following:

  • A photo of your valid national driving permit;
  • Relevant driver information;
  • A recent passport-size photograph;

How can I use my International Driving Permit?

Imagine a situation while staying abroad your driving license is not considered legal due to non-compliance. It may really spoil your journey. However, if you decide to get the International Driving License (IDL), it will help you to save time, money and nerves.
