Completing an international drivers license application before your travels outside of the country will save you a great deal of time and hassle. You can complete the application in person or online, depending upon your preference. There are many benefits that come your way when you have this special license in your possession. First, your international license makes renting a car much easier. In fact, some agencies require this document to be presented when renting. The license will also come in handy when or if you are stopped by a police officer during the course of your stay.
Your International Drivers Permit application must be completed when applying for the license. The application asks basic questions, such as your name and address, date of birth and your drivers license number. There is a $15 fee that must accompany the application. Cash is not accepted for the cost of the application and license, but you can pay with a money order, check, or a credit card.
If you are mailing your application, you must include two passport photos and a photocopy showing both the front and back of your drivers license. You must present these items in person if you wish to fill out your application in person. Your international license contains all of the original information translated from your driver's license into other languages.
Individuals who wish to apply for the international drivers permit must be at least 18 years of age. It is also required that you have had your license for a minimum of six months' prior to applying. If you are not at least 18 years of age or have not had your license for a period of six months, you are ineligible to receive the license.
The international driver's license application can be obtained from either the American Automobile Association or the National Automobile Club.
