What Side of the Road?: Driving is on the left side of the road.
International Driving Permit: Your drivers license is accepted.
What is an International Driving Permit? The 1949 (IDP) is a special licence for tourists, authorised by a UN treaty among nations of the world, for the purpose of allowing motorists to drive vehicles in international traffic without further tests or applications. It is proof that the holder possesses a valid driver's licence issued by a competent authority in their country of residence.
How do I obtain one? You can obtain an application by either contacting your local Automobile Association office to pick-up or have an application mailed to you. Links to the Automobile Association sites for the following countries are provided below.
