Frequently Asked Questions
Is this government-issued?
IDPs are essentially a translation document. It is not a government-issued document and/or an official driver’s license. It only serves as a complementary document that translates your original license, thus allowing you to drive overseas.
Where can I use this IDP?
Our IDP is in the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffic Standard format. You can use it along with your original driver’s license in countries that recognize the 1949 IDP format. You can visit this link for a quick guide: https://internationaldriversassociation.com/countries/
Is Digital IDP accepted everywhere?
No. Not all countries accept Digital IDP. It is best to ask your destination country’s traffic authorities and personnel if they accept Digital IDP copies.
Which countries do not accept your IDP?
Our IDP is not valid in countries that do not recognize the 1949 IDP format. It is also not valid to use in Mainland China, North Korea, and South Korea.

Why can’t I select the USA as a Country of Residence?
Our IDP is not available for US Citizens with valid US Driver’s Licenses. Only American Automobile Association (AAA) and American Automobile Touring Alliance (AATA) are authorized by US State Department to issue IDP to US driver’s license holders.

No. There are countries that strictly allow 1-year IDP validity only. It is best to ask your destination country’s traffic authorities and personnel for this.
Can I rent a car using your International Driving Permit?
Yes, our IDP is accepted by major car rental agencies. You need to show your original driver's license along with your IDP. In some cases, you might need additional documentation and insurance. We also have a Car Rental service, which you can take advantage of here: https://internationaldriversassociation.com/car-rental/
