Do You Plan to Drive Overseas?

If you plan to drive overseas, you may need to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP).  Many countries do not recognize U.S. driver´s licenses without an accompanying IDP, and it is illegal to drive without a valid license and insurance in most places.  You should check with the embassy of the country where you plan to travel to find out more about driver´s license and car insurance requirements.  If you will be residing overseas for an extended time, it is a good idea to obtain a local driver´s license as soon as possible, since IDPs have a limited validity.  Foreign countries may also require that persons considered resident obtain a local driver´s license if they are going to drive.  To renew a U.S. driver´s license while abroad, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles in your home state.
