What is an International Driving Permit (IDP)?
An IDP is a document which, when accompanied by a valid driver’s licence, enables a person to drive vehicles for leisure purposes in many foreign countries. Only CAA is authorized to issue IDPs in Canada, under a UN-approved mandate. Any non-CAA issued IDP is fake and will not be accepted by a foreign country.
For more information, visit the Government of Canada website.
To obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) you must fill out and submit the appropriate form based on your location, as well as whether or not you are part of the Department of National Defence/Canadian Armed Forces.
