International Driver's Permit

International Driver's Permit

Apply For International Driver's Permit Online

Travelers visiting other countries have the privilege of driving in some countries. However, many countries do not accept or recognize the U.S. Driver’s License. Most countries, however, do accept the International Driving Permit (IDP). The International Driving Permit is an identity document, slightly larger than a passport functioning as an official multi–language translation of a U.S. Driver’s License.

Travelers would require to carry both the IDP along with the driver’s license when driving out of the country. International Driving Permits require to be issued in the same country as the driver’s license. IDP’s are generally valid for up to 1 year as long as the driver’s license is valid for the full year.

VisaBuzz can help the traveler in the process of obtaining the International Driving Permit. Once the application request is completed online, the request will be processed and the Permit will be shipped back to the address indicated by the traveler.
