INTERNATIONAL DRIVING PERMIT

An International Driving Permit (IDP) is a translation of your current Australian Driver’s Licence in nine languages. Your IDP is proof that you hold a current domestic driver’s licence and it is only valid if you carry your domestic driver’s licence with your IDP. An IDP is a requirement for renting a motor vehicle in many countries. It is also helpful for tourists who find themselves in need of identification or assistance.

An IDP costs $39 AUD plus postage and can take up to 3-8 business days, to be processed and delivered in Australia. An IDP is valid for 12 months from the issue date (purchase date), unless your domestic drivers’ licence expires, is suspended, or revoked in the meantime. It is highly recommended travellers obtain a valid IDP prior to leaving Australia.

You can check to see if you will need an IDP using the search tool below.

Apply for an IDP


Online

Currently, Australians with a license from all states except Tasmania can apply for an IDP online. An IDP costs $39 AUD plus postage and can take up to 3-8 business days, to be processed and delivered in Australia.


In Person

If you require an IDP urgently, you can also purchase one in person through the state and territory motoring clubs. Please ensure you have a completed application form, valid passport photo and current drivers licence with you.


IMPORTANT: The Australian Automobile Association (AAA) is the only authority duly authorised to sell IDPs in Australia on behalf of the Australian Government. The Australian Government is party to the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffic. An IDP from the AAA must have the AAA Logo and official stamp. Any IDP that is not issued by the AAA in Australia is fraudulent.

WHY DO I NEED
AN IDP?

If you are travelling overseas and intend on driving it is recommended to have an IDP.

An IDP may be required for renting a motor vehicle in many countries and is helpful for tourists who find themselves in need of identification or assistance.

An IDP provides inexpensive additional security.

  • IDPs are officially sanctioned by the United Nations and accepted worldwide (in over 150 countries);
  • Your IDP carries your identification details in nine languages (English, Spanish, Japanese, Greek, German, Arabic, Russian, Chinese and French), in case you need to communicate with foreign authorities;
  • In some countries you may be asked to surrender your passport under certain circumstances. An IDP provides an extra photo ID in nine languages which you can always carry with you;
  • IDPs are a special permit 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 drivers licence is valid;
  • An IDP is proof that you hold a valid drivers licence in your home country at the date of issue of the IDP and should be carried with your domestic drivers licence;

Note: An IDP is only valid if you hold a current Australian Driver’s Licence. You may be asked to provide proof of travel and/or return dates to Australia, as an IDP is designed for touring purposes and anyone residing in another country for a lengthy period should apply for a licence in that country.

 

FRAUDULENT IDP WARNING

Counterfeit IDPs are being offered for sale on the internet, usually at inflated prices. These forged IDPs are illegal and can get the holder into a great deal of difficulty with the traffic authorities in various countries. In Australia only the Australian Automobile Association, through the State and Territory Motoring Clubs, is authorised to issue IDPs.
