What is the International Driver’s Document?

Our IDD is ideal for travelers visiting multilingual destinations. No test required and the IDD is valid for up to three years. This document is used in conjunction with, but does not replace, your valid national license, it is an unofficial translation of your Driver’s License in two formats: A Translation Card, translating your permit in 16 languages, and a Translation Booklet, translating your Driver’s License in 9 languages. As a complementary feature, our advanced translation card saves a digital copy of your valid Driving Permit in your Smartphone. International driving permits, which are booklets issued by governmental agencies or private organizations designated by a country’s government, are the only official translation of a person’s driver’s license. Our translation has no official status and does not confer any legal privileges or rights on consumers. Our International Driver’s Document is commonly known as the International Driver’s License.

What are the benefits of having the International Driver’s License?

Our IDD is ideal for travelers visiting multilingual destinations. This non-official document will help you, in conjunction with your current valid driver’s license, to register a car and rent a vehicle in many countries.

Is this document a valid form of identification or replaces my state-issued driver’s license?

No. The IDD is a non-official and non-governmental document and it does not substitute your state-issued driver’s license or photo ID. This supplementary document simply acts as a translation and digital storage of your valid national driver’s license. This is not the IDP of AAA or AATA, these booklets are issued by governmental agencies or private organizations designated by a country’s government and these are the only official translation of a person’s driver’s license.

Why does the date of birth not appear on the document?

The statute 877.18 of the Florida State law certifies that the date of birth cannot appear in a non-governmental document without a notary republic and in the presence of the owner of the driver’s license. Since we provide this document mostly via Internet, we do not meet this requirement online, however, we will soon issue this document with your day of birth ONLY if you visit our office in North Miami and we notarize your driver’s license.

Are there any exceptions regarding the acceptance of the IDD internationally?

In China, in Japan and Spain the document is not accepted. We recommend that you verify the requirements for each destination as the requirements vary from country to country and state to state.
