An International Driving Permit (IDP) is a legal document which endorses your South African driver's license.
Due to the fact that in many countries English is not an official language - the IDP provides translation of your South African driver's license into several languages as well as the 5 official UN languages. This allows your license to be read and understood in various countries. It also assists motorists in foreign countries, when you need to rent a car or obtain insurance while abroad. The AA strongly recommends that you obtain an IDP if you intend using a vehicle abroad.
As accredited sales of the AA an IDP may be issued at any of our stores which are listed below and only takes 15-20 minutes for us to process. Please download and complete the application form and return it to us with the following documentation.
