IDP & Driving Licence where?

Do I need an international driving permit?

A compulsory IDP will depend on where you are planning to drive. Our map below shows what countries require you to carry an IDP – hover over the countries to find out more. This map currently doesn’t show the countries that would be affected in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Please note: some countries have their own terms and conditions in relation to IDPs, so it’s important you research your destination prior to travelling. For example, in Brazil a certified translation is required from the Consulate for you to legally drive.

Will I need a driving permit for different countries?

There are three different permits. The one you apply for will depend on what countries you’re visiting. 

  • A 1949 Convention IDP
  • A 1968 Convention IDP
  • A 1926 Convention IDP
