International driving permits
Apply for a permit through the NRMA
Driving overseas? You might need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP), also known as an international drivers licence. If you're renting or driving a car, an IDP lets you drive overseas without further tests or applications. It's also a useful form of photo identification.
You can apply for an IDP through the NRMA and have it delivered within 3 to 5 business days, when using Domestic Express Post.
