How do I get an international driver's license in Iraq?

Getting an international driver’s license (idl), also known as an International Driver’s Permit (IDP), is a document that is used to support your home country driver’s license as agreed by the United Nations during the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic. It is used to translate your driver’s license, be it in English or not, to translate it into 12 of the widely used languages worldwide including Arab.

To get your IDP from us, so you can drive a motor vehicle from a car rental company in the country, you’ll need to follow these steps:

  1. Click the blue “Apply for IDP” button.
  2. Fill out the application form with every detail asked that appears on your valid driver’s license.
  3. Attach a copy of your passport-size photo, valid driver’s license, and input your credit card details to pay the IDP fee.
  4. Monitor your shipping updates through your e-mail.
