The International Driving Permit (IDP), often referred to as International Driving License, is a document that, along with your valid home driver’s license, allows you to legally drive a motor vehicle while abroad.

Understand that an IDP does NOT REPLACE your U.S.-issued driver’s license; rather, it acts as a language translation of your driver’s license and features. Translations that your document will provide include French, Spanish, English, Italian, Russian, Arabic, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Portuguese.

The following requirements and restrictions apply, you must be:

  • at least 18 years old to apply.
  • Carry BOTH your IDP and your valid driver’s license when driving abroad.
  • Obtain your IDP in the same country that issued your driver’s license.


You may NOT use your IDP to drive within the country in which it was issued.

Your IDP is valid, with a valid U.S. driver’s license, for up to 1 year from the date it’s issued.
You cannot renew your IDP, but you can apply for a new permit when necessary.



Even though we provide a Japanese translation with our IDL, the Japanese, as they really don’t like for any foreigners to drive there, have changed their position stating that they prefer the IDL issued by AAA. Although we have had thousands of our clients use our documents in Japan, we would not want anyone to ever have a problem, so if the AAA option is available to you and Japan is your destination, you might want to use their services








I understand that this international driver’s license translation document is in no way intended to replace a suspended or revoked driver’s license from the United States or any other country, and I am not applying for this translation document to use as such. I do further understand that this document translation will become null and void if a license is issued and the above is the actual Intention of the applicant. I further release IDL International, Inc. from any and all said liability caused by any misrepresentation on my part. I additionally release IDL International, Inc. from any and all liability caused by applicant’s failure to comply with any local, state, national, or international law.

All orders are returned promptly. License Translations are processed within 48 hours of receipt. License Translations are gladly mailed abroad at no additional charge.
