Why carry an IDP while driving in Colombia

Your IDP is a valid form of identification in more than 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information in the 12 most widely spoken languages in the world – it is understandable to most of the local officials and authorities of the countries you visit.

It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Colombia highly recommends an International Driving Permit.

It may not be on the top of your list, but Colombia has a lot to offer. The churches, mountains and beaches are second to none. It is best to drive your own car if you are travelling to Colombia. Be sure to keep a few rules in mind to enjoy your vacation to the fullest.   

Important Reminders:

  • Colombians drive on the right side of the road.
  • The minimum driving age is 18 years old. The minimum rental age is 23 years old.
  • Seat belt is a must.
  • Child-restraint is a must.
  • Drink moderately. The legal alcohol limit is 40 mg per 100 ml of blood. 
  • The speed limit is 60 km/h in urban areas, 80 km in rural roads and 100 km/h in highways.
  • You are required to drive with dipped headlights on highways all day long.
