International Drivers license

 

International Driving License

There are many websites who recommend you to have an international driving license with you when you buy a car / hire a car in Australia. This international drivers licence can be bought at the Road Assistance shops in your country (try google). Moreover, it is nothing more than a paper booklet with translations of the meanings of your license in several languages.

 

Experience has shown that a copy (of a person who already has an international drivers license) or simply a translation into English will be enough for driving in Australia. The police does not even look at it! It is not mandatory, just maybe practical. But when driving leads to a fine (when they caught you and hold you standing) then you just explain the details of your regular drivers license. You can translate it verbally.

 

Your international driving license is valid only in conjunction with your regular license.

You can also choose to have an 'authenticity certificate' from your driving license with you. This is a proof, issued by your local transportation company which shows that your license is an original license and not a fake license. Try google for more information about your region.

 

It is NOT necessary to have both of them. Would you still go for security, go for an international license. You need to bring your driving license and a passport photo.

TIP: if you are in possession of an international driving license, you can be in some cases choose to give this as a kind of identity, when (in Australia) people ask about it. Sometimes they ask you and then you have this 'trashy' booklet (no value) in order to issue. Very handy!
