World Drivers Association (WDA) - International Driving Document

World Drivers Association (WDA) is specialized in translating domestic driving license of any country to the international languages recognized worldwide, and producing International Driving Document (IDD) in accordance with "United Nations Conventions on Road Traffic" requirements for document size, color, format, etc... This document (IDD) establishes the right for a person to drive in another country when accompanied by an original and valid driving license. As explained above, the International Driving Document (IDD) is intended to overcome the difficulties you might have while driving a vehicle in another country that may have different language than your own. This document is also useful for car rentals and local driving authorities for identification.

NOTICE: The International Driving Document (IDD) is only a translation of a driver's license and not a regular driver's license. The International Driving Document (IDD), without a currently valid driving license is not a useful or valid document to present to any authority.

How to properly use the International Driving Document (IDD)

- Being a tourist anywhere in the world, you can rent a vehicle and drive by using your International Driving Document (IDD) and your valid original driving license to facilitate the language barrier of your original permit to local authorities.

- According to the 1949 Convention on Road Traffic, an IDD remains valid for one year from the date of issue. However, according to the Vienna Convention, an IDD remains valid for no more than three years from the date of issue, or until the expiration date of domestic driving license, whichever is earlier, or once the driver establishes a residence in the country he is in. When a driver decides to live and get a residence in a country, he must apply for a local driving permit. An IDD is not valid for driving in the country of origin of the driver.

- It is very important to notice that the International Driving Document (IDD) is only a translation of your original driving license and not a regular driver's license. So, without a valid driving license, the International Driving Document (IDD) is not useful to present to any authority.

- All International Driving Document (IDD) issued by WDA are stored in our secured database, and can be easily accessed by scanning the QR code on each card, so you can check validity, status and information online in 10 different languages.

- No official test is required to obtain your International Driving Document (IDD). It is again a translation of your domestic driving license.
