Why carry an IDP while driving in Rwanda?
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. Rwanda highly recommends an International Driving Permit.Order my International Driving Permit Now
