Can I use my License to Drive in South Africa?

Auto EuropeTravelers from the US will be pleased that the South African government accepts any valid driver's license provided it contains a photograph and signature of the license holder and is printed or authenticated in English. With this said, travelers may find some car rental suppliers who require international travelers to acquire an international driver's permit (IDP) in order to rent a car. Always check with Auto Europe or with your rental supplier directly on the company policy. IDP's can be obtained locally at your nearest AAA branch office for $20 USD. Auto Europe always recommends travelers to pick-up an IDP before they travel to avoid any potential issues with local law enforcement who may not speak much if any english.
