International Driving Permits

International Driving Permits are recognized in over 160 countries and they are mandatory in over 80 countries.  A similar document, the Inter-American Driving Permit, is recognized throughout Latin America and is mandatory for driving in such places as Brazil and Uruguay. CIBTvisas can obtain a one year International Driving Permit for US and non-US driving permit holders.

International Driving permit Fees: Cost Processing time
One year $110.00 7 days

In the US, the permits are issued by AAA in accordance with the United Nations Convention on Road Traffic.  If you are planning to rent a car or drive a private vehicle, then there is a good chance that you need this special permit. In some cases, the permit must be shown to the rental car agency - in other cases, it's only needed in the event of a traffic accident or violation.
