If you’ll be driving in another country, it’s always a good idea to get an International Driving Permit (IDP) before you head off. An IDP is a translation of your valid Australian drivers licence which carries your identification details in nine languages (English, Spanish, Japanese, Greek, German, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, French) which can be useful in case you need to communicate with foreign authorities. Some rental car companies will require you have an IDP before allowing you to hire a vehicle from them. IDPs are valid for 12 months from the date of issue and are a handy form of photo ID whilst travelling. Get into the driver’s seat and start your holiday the right way with an IDP.
Check your destination below if you're unsure whether the country you're travelling to requires an IDP.
