China is not accepting this International license? So that means this license is not valid in China?

Hi pam,
I have valid license of dubai, can i drive in london?

Drivers staff,

Hi Pam - the International Driving Permit is not an alternative license - it is actually a translation of your existing drivers license for international purposes. You will need to have a drivers license in order to get an IDP.

There are some interesting articles on this site you could look at if you search for 'parallel parking'

pam,

i'm a permanent resident here in Texas and just wondering if i can get a international drivers license in the philippines so i can drive here since i fail on my actual test of parallel parking. this drive me crazy coz i can't get a license it's all because i can't do parallel parking...Any advice what the thing to do? thanks.....

I'm 19 and have dual nationality--Spain and U.S. I want to get my driver's license in Miami, then I'll go to Spain and will be there for 2 months. Do I need an IDP to drive in Spain? What if I stay there more time? Does my age make a difference?I have family in Miami and Spain so would like to be able to drive in both countries.

Dan,

If you are a short-term resident in the U.S. and your Indian IDP is valid - why not. However, you need to check local rules ( go to http://drivershandbook.com and click on Connecticut ) .

If your indian license is not printed in english originaly you need to check with Police in CT

Just found out that Progressive Auto Insurance accept international drivers licenses in Colorado. They charge about 100 extra dollars, but I think it's worth it. Good luck all. Peace.

Drivers staff,

Hi Markus - it is probably always best to have an International Drivers Permit in case of any problems as both Sweden and the UK accept it and it can double as a handy form of ID.

Dan - drivers.com,

Bharat, I have two suggestions for you.

Direct your question to the California Dept of Motor vehicles (you'll find links here http://drivershandbook.com/topic/10/ )

or if this is not satisfactory you could approach the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators at
http://www.aamva.org/

This is an organization that relates to all the states.

Admin,

Unni, you have to be a permanent resident to get a license n the U.S.A. however, details depend on the state.
for detailed information check http://drivershandbook.com and click on USA for links to state information sites.

Unni Krishnan,

Clarification on my earlier Post:
Question was, As a tourist, am I leagally allowed to attempt obtaining an American driving license??
Thanx

Unni Krishnan,

I am an Indian license holder (incl.IDP), visiting the USA. I intend to return to India in two months time. Can I apply and get an American driving license while I am in the USA??

Dan,

Jacqui, you may not need the IDP but it's a well worth while investment and could be used as ID rther than leaving your passport or some other item in some situations.

You need to check if it is required for car rentals.

Jacqui,

I am going to Sumatra and Pulau Weh, Indonesia for 4 months. Can I drive a friend's car there using my Canadian driver's license or should I get an IDP from Canada?

DAn,

Sorry Rod, an international won't work. It's only for travel outside the U.S.

I don't know what reciprocal agreements are in place between Pennsylvania and California but if your california license is still good then I see no reason why you could not use it.
Normally, you are not allowed to have more than one state license at a time. You have to discontinue one state license to get the other.

I believe there are some exceptions to this. For example, Florida, which has many residents who are there only part of the year, allows possession of an out of state license but the Florida license is marked as only valid in Florida

Rodric Barrients,

I have a California Drivers Licinse and planning to go home next week for 2 weeks , can i use my CAL Licinse for 1 - 2 days coz i have a PHIL Drivers Licinse but its already Expired and i will renew it when i get home.. or do i still need to get International Driver License

rtduly,

Dear Sir,
thank you for your reply. if i understand correctly, a citizen from a country visiting cambodia that has signed the 1968 Convention, but is not signed the 1949 convention, would still be valid in Cambodia? (cambodia only recognizing the'49 and not '68 convention)

Admin,

rtduly,
remember your IDP is not a license in itself but just a translation n UN approved format, of your Cambodia license. Therefore it should work and not be a problem.

rtduly,

Sir - i live in Cambodia and working for the transport ministry who control the IDP exchange to local driving license. they understand that Cambodia recognizes all the 1949 signatories, but what about the IDPs that list 1926 0r 1968 signatories, which Cambodia did not sign? are these IDPs also valid?

DK,

I don't see Nigeria on the list of UN treaty signatories. I which case you would not be able to get an valid IDP from Nigeria.

jude,

hello, I have got a valid idp from nigeria, can i drive in the netherlands?

Don,

the IDP is supposed to be good for one year if you are visitign a country. Once you become a resident you have to get a local Brazialian license

RE United Arab Emirates and the international permit -

The UAE was only formed in 1971 as a federation of six small states, so they weren't around for the international treaty of 1949. For more info check out our section of Driving in the UAE at
http://www.drivers.com/topic/152/

This page has also links to information on getting a local UAE license.

Admin,

Kevin, since your Ontario license is in both English and French you do not really need an IDP. However, not a bad idea to get it before you go, since it's only about $15

and to na

you need to get a new IDP by mail if you are still in the UK

na,

I lost my international licence in the UK, what I have to do.

kevin,

I have valid drivers licence for ontario canada.Do i need an international licence to drive in france

Admin,

If you hold an International Driving Permit from any of the countries listed above you should be able to drive in any of the other countries listed above. However, you should check with the country you are going to. We've listed some sources to check here:

If anyone know the legal source for IDPs in countries we have NOT listed could you please let us know.

ADMIN,

augustine,

an international license cannot be exchanged for a regular license since it is only a copy in the UN format.

If your provisional license is expired you will have to start again.

Augustine,

Just a quick question. I had an International driving licensing from my country Sierra Leone since Feb,2005 and expired in Feb, 2006. I also had UK provisional licensing since 2005. Is it possible to change my International driving licensing to Full UK licensing? Pls I wnat to know.

RE converting to a UK license -- check our page on Driving in the UK.
http://www.drivers.com/topic/180/

There's a link there on converting to a UK license.

Admin,

Ashley,

Since Mauritious is one of the signatories to the UN 1949 convention of road traffic your International Driving Permit should be recognized. However, you also have to produce your Mauritius license.

That's just for the first 12 months of your visit. If you follow this link to our TRAVEL page on Driving In Ireland http://www.drivers.com/topic/153/ you will find more detailed information. Click on the first link on that page (converting your license ...) and you will find the following.

"If you are not from any of the above countries, (for example, if you are from Canada, the United States or New Zealand), and you hold a national driving licence or an international driving permit from your own country, you may drive in Ireland for the duration of your temporary visit (up to 12 months). "

Ashley,

Hi I have a valid international driving permit from Mauritius and is wondering if i can drive in Ireland as I was stopped by the local policeman in Dublin and they said that it was not valid in Ireland. Is that true ?

fion,

My husband is ghanaian and we have just moved to Scotland, he has an international driver license but has been advised to get UK one for better insurance and as now resident. Does he need to start again with provisional and UK driving test or is there a conversion?

Olalekan,

On the international driver license of Nigeria ,it is there that Finland is part of the 1949 convention and Nigeria International driver license is not accepted in Finland,who can give me an answer to this.

Thomas,

Hi Im a valid International Driving Permit Holder from India. I would like to know whether its legal if i drive along the places in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsilvania and in Newyork with that in hand.

Ray,

You all jurks talk about International driving lisence and need it mostly for one more country. Why not fucking CONVERT /EXCHANGE your countries lisence to the country you plan to go to and then get their national lisenc first before you ask for a International driving lisence...

THINKKKKKKKK!

Admin,

Kunal
Can you tell us by email (pde@drivers.com) which car rental company and we will check it out. Your IDP should be good.
Put IDP in Bahrain in the subject line of your email so we don't lose it in all the spam we get.

Kunal,

I was told by a car rental company that Bahrain does not accept an Indian IDP - is this true? Nothing of this sort was mentioned on the IDP.

Don,

Carmine, check out Driving in the UK at Drivershandbook.com

Admin,

Carmine, Yes you can - for up to 12 months. However, if you want to continue after that you will need to apply for a provisional lic in UK before the 12 months are up.

It depends on the state. Each state has different rules. Go to

and check out different states and their rules.

It might be better to get an International Drivers permit if you are still in Jamaica. It wont' cost you much and it's good for a year justabout everywhere.

Your IDP should be OK in Kuwait. Even though it is not on the list above it is a signatory to the 1949 UN convention. Also, check out links on Driving in Kuwait at http://www.drivers.com/topic/210/

Sam
check our link on Driving in Estonia
http://www.drivers.com/topic/209/

DK,

Sam, one of the features of the International Driving Permit, as set out by the United Nations conventions of 1949 and 1968, is that the information be reproduced in the official UN languages which include Russian, German, Chinese, Spanish and, I think, Arabic. So you don't have an official IDP.

I think your best bet is to get an official translation of your Indian license. You should talk to the Indian consulate in Estonia to check on this.

Otherwise you could perhaps get an IDP from India by mail (check our list of sources at
http://www.drivers.com/article/207/

We have two links for India but I think there are other offices for different regions.

Sam,

Thanks DK , I have checked my DP but its totally in english.There is no other language.Do I have to make a translation of it?

DK,

Sam, since Estonia is in the European Union I would think your IDP is acceptable. Don't know about the Estonian language but I believe Russian is commonly used in Estonia and that would be on your IDP so if you are stopped by police they will be able to read it. However, you must have your Indian License in your possession.

Sam,

It is upto date, its validity is till 31st Dec, 2009. So does it means that I can drive with that here without any problems or headaches??

Admin,

Hey Greek Monster, I think you have left it too long to convert your license directly to a German one.

Check our links under DRIVING IN GERMANY
http://www.drivers.com/topic/164/

DK,

Sam, you should check if your IDP is out of date. It only lasts a year, then you have to get an Estonian license

Greek Monster,

Hi. I have a greek driving license from 1999. It is the old paper version (so, not the digital card like form). However, it does have the EU symbol and the title is translated in all EU countries languages.
I live in germany since 2006 and now I started driving my boyfriend's car. Is my license ok or do I have to converted to the german one? In case I do have to convert it, it is a problem the fact that I live in the country already 3 years?
Thank you!

Sam,

I am Indian living in Estonia I have a IDP from India . Can I drive here? But as far as I know Estonia is under Vienna Convention but India is under convention of 1949, what to do?

Admin,

AshT,
Not sure why Bahrain is not on the list but our information is that your IDP WILL be accepted in there.

Check out our section on Driving in Bahrain at
http://www.drivers.com/topic/193/

AshT,

I have an IDP from India and it lists Bahrain as one of the countries, but it is not listed here on this list. Was it taken off the list??

Dan,

Hi Antonis,

There is no USA license. Each state has its own licensing system. You would have to check with the State department of motor vehicles to find out. You can find a list at
http://www.drivershandbook.com/topic/1/.

The countries with which most states have reciprocal agreements are France, Germany and the UK in Europe.

If ther eis a reciprocal agreement then you can exchange your license for a state license without taking any tests. Otherwise you will have to go through the system.

Mack,
Check our link on Driving in Cyprus
http://www.drivers.com/topic/199/ .

and note: There is no such thing as an "international driving license". What is referred to as an international license or permit (IDL or IDP) is a UN-approved version of your regular license and it is usually available (at low cost) from some non government organization such as a national Auto club.

Our page of IDP resources will tell you if we have your country listed.
http://www.drivers.com/article/207/

mack,

i am a student in cyprus i wanted to know if my international license is valid here and for how long, also is idp a license to drive in the mentioned above countries or just a handbook,i mean if i get one of those idp's do i still need a international license or is that good enough to drive here.i may add that i have a temp resident permit here for a year so please help...

Otico,

I have an international License from Ghana, is there any thing to do before i start using it?

Check out section on Driving in Greece
http://www.drivers.com/topic/198/

Admin,

Travelcoord, officially we are told the an International Driving Permit is mandatory if renting a car in Greece, but informally a valid license from the U.S. would be accepted by some renters. However, problems could be encountered if the only license you have is in English and cannot be understood by police if an incident occurs. The International permit is advised and if you stay in Greece longer than 6 months you will need to convert to a Greek license.

TravelCoord,

Do you have to have an international driving permit to drive in Greece? Or will the government recognize a US driver's license?

Admin,

dhiren, your Indian license should be OK in France, but if it is not in English then you should get an International License.You can get more info in our "Driving in France" section

since both Ireland adn India are signatories to the U.S. road traffic convention treaty your license should be good in Ireland.

However, if you are a resident in Ireland on a more permanent basis you wouldneed to check. The Automobile Association should be able to tell you.

Very good article keep up the good work

DK,

When traveling abroad it's always a good idea to get an international lic. especially if traveling to a country with a different language.

In other words, Lisa shoud get an IDP from her home state of Texas. The IDP (the official one!!) is only given by the country in which you hold your origianl license.

David,

I have a Korean drivers license. Is this valid for driving rental cars in Japan? If I need an International Drivers Permit, where can I purchase an IDP here in Korea?

Sir,

We are the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of
Nigeria (IPMAN) that has investment in oil and gas industries, which
constitute one of our prominent stakes holding in the countryâ™s economy.

It has more than 36; 000 members in Nigeria and they own most of the
petrol stations in Nigeria . The Association wants a reputable truck
company where we can purchase fairly used or new trucks, these actually
prompt this letter.



The trucks we would prefer are the Mercedes trucks, Mack, DAF, MAN
Diesel, Scania and Volvo trucks. The capacity would be between
33,000-37,000 liters or more than and we would buy between 15 to 20
trucks
depending on the trucks found, their prices and their qualities will be
considered.Also the Association wants to purchase Oil material such as
lubrication.



We therefore want you to give us details information on what you have
at the moment and their prices.

However, our association will like to send some important executives
who are to come for examining and the purchase.

Your prompt response to this request shall be appreciated.



Thank you for your advance co-operation,

Best Regards,

In Newjursey if u have IDP you need not give the road test only written exam is enough.
Is that the same in Massachusets?

Thanx

DK,

Changing from driving on the left to the right (or vice versa) is easy for most people - at first. The real problem comes when you get used to it.

Eye habits, and mental habits that go with driving on one side or the other don't change easily. Once you become relaxed in your new environment is when you are in danger of lapsing into your original habits.

I believe I saw studies some time ago indicating that the most dangerous period for tourists is after 2 - 3 weeks!

Steve,

I,m a Brit ( we drive on the left )

Took me 1 day to get used to driving on the right. Where do " months" come from?

Puneeth Joseph,

A person who drives a car in India cannot drive in the US with ease since everyone in the US drive on the right side. It takes months to get used to it anyway.

SJ,

I hold 2 licenses , both from the UAE and India . I am a visitor ...in Canada.... and i would like to know if I can use any one of these licenses to drive here? Or , is it possible to acquire an international license here with the help of what I already have ?
Thanks in advance for the response .

Elizabete,

Thanks, DK! We're still looking. Btw, Latvia, though a member of the League of Nations prior to being absorbed by the Soviet Union, only joined the UN in 1991 when the SU collapsed.

jeng,

can i exchange my Gambian international licence with the German one?

DK,

Elizabete, Latvia is a participant to the UN 1949. The IDP is probably given out by the local Automobile Association, at least that's a good place to start looking.

Elizabete,

Hi! Relatives of mine will be coming from the country of Latvia to the US for a visit. Do you have any idea where in Rīga (Latvia's capital) they could get an international driver's license? Thanks!

Don,

Omar, You couldmeet a cop that is a problem just about anywhere. I think the IDP should be OK. Just a matter of being careful.

Omar Martinez,

I have a US driver license and I'm going to spend some time in Ecuador I allready have my IDP but will that be enough I know that there are some police that do not respect any thing.

DK,

Henrik, I think you have to try each state. They have theor own licensing systems. However, if you want one Itorganization to contact, this is it.

Click on
American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators - AAMVA

represents licensing and vehicle administration agencies throughout the U.S. and Canada. This site offers a clickable map with links to local agencies by state and province. These are the organizations to approach if you need information about licensing rules in your area.

Some of the other organizations listed here might help also.

Marshall Lentini,

"Someone told me that some states honor foreing drivers license. If that's the case, do I need an IDP? and where can I get it?"

You have to get it in or from Ecuador, not the US. It isn't mandatory, and in theory you may drive with only your Ecuadorian license, but the purpose of an international driver's permit (lower-case to distinguish it from the American IDP) is to "aid law-enforcement officials and others who need to know the actual content of the license." In other words: if you are stopped by a cop in, say, New York state, you will probably get by. But if you are stopped by a sheriff, let's say in Alabama, you will probably have to deal with some small-town bureaucracy. Getting an international permit would, again in theory - policemen aren't lawyers, and don't know the law beyond what it takes to cover their asses - protect you in such a situation, where the officer may be more inclined to fill his quota than understand that most US states have agreements to honor foreign licenses.

Marshall Lentini,

"Any one could tell me why these two countries have a different permit?"

Uruguay is to an extent an economic appendage of Brasil, so they are obliged to follow the latter in some of its commercial policies. For example, the bulk of yerba mate in Uruguay comes from southern Brasil, and as this is a staple product, it makes more sense that Uruguay accept Brasil's permit than require the more popular IDP from Brasilian truckers. Brasil has its own permit, in the first place, because it is historically a different political entity from the other Latin American states, and though at present it is eager to combine to an extent with the others on economic policies, it strives to maintain its own ways and superior economic status.

Just pay the extra $15 if you really want to drive in there. Or have some cash handy for "para sobornar".

Ronald,

I'll be spending the next 3-4 months in USA (NY-NJ-CT)I'm from Ecuador and in my city, Guayaquil, I couldn't get an IDP because I couldn't find an office there. Can I drive here using my valid ecuadorian license. Someone told me that some states honor foreing drivers license. If that's the case, do I need an IDP? and where can I get it?

gdgupta,

whether holder of a international driving permit can drive a car in india without getting himself registered with indian registered licensing authority?

Maria,

I will traveling to Brazil next month and
I would like to know the difference between International Driving Permit and Inter-American Driving Permit. I know that
Brazil and Uruguay only accept the Inter-American one. Any one could tell me why these two countries have a different
permit?
Thanks

Marshall Lentini,

Incorrect: BRAZIL and URUGUAY recognize ONLY the "Inter-American Driving Permit", also available from AAA. **DO NOT** get the standard IDP if you intend to drive in either country. Every AAA IDP app will contain this footnote.
