The Document is required International Driving License

A International Driving License (IDL) is a valid document in several countries, allowing holders to drive a motor vehicle in the country. To be valid, the IDL is required to be accompanied by an authentic license from the country where it was issued. It is slightly bigger than a normal passport and is basically a multi different language translation of the standard driver’s license, which comes with a photo and important information. In many countries, however the short-term visitors do not require an IDL because the driver’s license from the country of residence is recognized and allows one to drive in the host country.
