Why do you have to get an IDP (International Driver’s Licence/Permit)?
If you want to drive in another country (other than your own) you need to get an IDP. This (+ your South African driver’s license) will allow you to legally drive on another country’s roads. If you want to rent a vehicle, you also need to show both your South African and International Driver’s Permit.
Do you still need to take your South African driver’s licence if you have a IDP?
Yes! You do need to take your South African driver’s license with your IDP when you go on your holiday.
How much does it cost and where can you get it?
AA Travel Shops sell it at a cost of R150.
What do you take along when you apply for your IDP?
You take your ID book, current valid driver’s license, 2 passport photos and cash.
