United Nations Conventions
On September 19, 1949, the United Nations established the International Driving Permit to facilitate the travel of motorists in foreign countries where language barriers create difficulties for both motorists and the police. This document establishes the right for a person to drive in another country when accompanied by an original driving license.
Your International Driving Permit MUST be accompanied at all times by your original valid driving license. You are not allowed to present the International Driving Permit as the main document because it is only a translation of your original driving license.
