The IDD (also known as the international driver's license) is based on the United Nations standards on Road Traffic. On September 19, 1949, the first Road Traffic Agreement was created and the United Nations established an International document to facilitate the travel of motorists in foreign countries where language barriers create difficulties for both, motorists and local officers. This document establishes the right for a person to drive in another country when accompanied by an original and valid driver's license, translating your driving permit in 9 languages. The International Driver's Document is intended to overcome the difficulties you might have while driving a vehicle in another country that may have different language than your own. As additional feature, this document is fully useful in many car rentals and local driving authorities for identification, motor vehicle registration or insurance proposes.
