This morning I receive a call concerning driving in other countries with a USA driver’s license.. So I thought I would clarify the process of getting an international driving permit.
Most European countries will accept your USA driver’s licence , but do requires a driving permit. Get a IDP which is an international driving permit. How do you get one what is the cost and how long does it take ?.
There are several agencies providing issuing IDP. These can be found online.
1-AAA trough an online application the process takes 2 weeks and cost USD 20.00.
It take about 2 weeks to receive, and it some cases can be expedited. If you have any questions about specific countries ,just put a comment on the blog and I will answer
