Our online application form takes less than 5 minutes to apply.


The United Nations established the International Driving Permit, which is translation of a domestic driver license that allows the holder to drive a private motor vehicle in any country or jurisdiction that recognizes the document.

To be valid, the International Driving Permit must be accompanied by a valid driving licence issued in the applicant's country of residence. 

International Driving Permits are governed by three international conventions: the 1926 Paris International Convention relative to Motor Traffic, the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffic, and the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic. When a state is contracting to more than one convention, the newest one terminate and replace previous ones.
