International Driving Permit

International Driving Permits (IDP) are special permits for tourists.
​​​​Authorised by a United Nations Treaty for the purpose of allowing motorists to drive internationally without further tests or applications, provided their domestic driver's licence is valid.​

An IDP is proof that you hold a valid driver's licence in your home country at the date of issue of the IDP and should be carried with your domestic driver's licence.

A valid IDP is a requirement for renting a motor vehicle in many countries and is helpful for tourists who find themselves in need of identification or assistance.
IDP's cost $39 (plus postage and handling if applicable).
You can apply at any RACT branch.
