How to get an International Driving License in Bhutan?

The International Driving License is a translation of the national driving license into many languages. The first ID cards appeared in 1926 after the Paris International Convention relative to Motor Traffic. The International Driver's License was also influenced by two other conventions in 1949 and 1968. The International Driving Permit is the same as the International Driving License.

Getting an International Driver's License in Bhutan while you are in Bhutan if you have a valid Bhutan national driver's license. If you are only planning to visit Bhutan, you can contact the competent authority in your country. If you are already traveling and do not have an IDL, the only option is to have your national driving license translated online. This is a faster, more convenient and easier way to continue to drive when you travel.

We remind you that an International Driver's License is valid only with a valid national license.

How to get a International Driving Permit in Bhutan?

According to the Vienna Convention of 1968, International Driving Permit are authorized to be issued by national governments or organizations to which these functions have been delegated. In most countries, this is done by automobile associations affiliated to the AIT/FIA, the police or other organizations. To get an International Driving License in Bhutan, you must have a local license and apply to the authorities responsible for this (we try to keep the information up to date, let us know if the link does not work). The cost and timing of issuance differs from country to country.

If you have a national license not issued in Bhutan, you need to check if you have the right to drive with your license and if you need an IDP. If you do, the only way out is to order a translation of your driver's license with delivery or an electronic version (check with the rental car company if the electronic version will work), for example with us.

If you are a U.S. citizen and only have a U.S. driver's license when you travel, you can get an IDP from AAA - but you have to do it before you travel to Bhutan!
