International driving document is a legal translation of national driver’s license. By itself IDL’s is not valid for driving in United States. It’s merely confirms that you hold a valid license in your home country.
Every time you drive you should have with you both things: your NATIONAL DRIVER’S LICENSE and INTERNATIONAL TRANSLATION OF DRIVER’S LICENSE.
International driving document is intended to overcome the difficulties the drivers might have while traveling by car in other countries where license requirements may widely vary.
The authorization for the International driving document has its basis in International Conventions on Road Safety (in 1923, 1943, 1949 and 1968.)
The November 8th, 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic was amended in 2006. This amendment requires the international driver’s license to contain additional identifiable information pertaining to the Holder of the license. The purpose of this additional information is to aid law enforcement officers in case of an emergency or any other issue that may arise on the road involving the license holder.
It is worth mentioning that, most national drivers license contain very limited identifiable information that will aid law enforcement officers abroad. This lack of complete identifiable information may cause problems such as, unnecessary penalty, the driver’s detention or forfeiture of the vehicle in a foreign country.
To avoid any of these unpleasant complications, we recommend you to order an English translation of your national driving licenses at our company because it complies with the standard outlined in the convention.
The basic information is translated into 8 languages. There is a list of countries which signed United Nations Convention on Road Traffic and accepted International driving document.
International Translation of driver’s License is accomplished by IADC in two parts:
1. The booklet in dark-blue color
2. The plastic card (membership card)
*DO NOT FORGET: YOUR CURRENT DRIVER’S LICENSE MUST ACCOMPANY THE INTERNATIONAL DRIVING DOCUMENT IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE VALID.
