More about the IDP application process

The monitoring club in your state/territory will process your IDP on behalf of the AAA as their sales agent

An IDP carries your identification details in nine languages (English, Spanish, Japanese, Greek, German, Arabic, Russian, Chinese and French).

Your IDP is proof that you hold a current domestic drivers license and it is only valid if you carry your domestic driver's license with your IDP.

Before purchasing an IDP it is highly recommended that you visit the AAA International Driving Permit Directory on the following link and check your destinations for IDP requirements. This information is only a guide and seeking contact with local authorities is always encouraged as it will provide you with the latest requirements for that country.

Protecting your personal information is important to the AAA and their sales agents. Please refer to the below ink to our Privacy Policy. Should you not wish to provide your details online you can submit a postal application via the following link
