International Driving Permit

IDPs are honored in more than 150 countries outside the Islamic Republic of Iran (See the list of countries within the TACI's application form). They function as an official translation of an Iranian driver's license into 6 foreign languages. Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on Road Traffic (1949) authorizes Touring & Automobile Club of the Islamic Republic of Iran (TACI) to issue IDPs to those who hold valid Iranian driver's licenses. These permits are not intended to replace valid Iranian licenses and should only be used as a supplement to a valid license. IDPs are not valid in an individual,s country of residence. An IDPs are valid for one year from the effective date provided the Iranian license is still valid throughout that period.

Also, the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has designated the TACI as an exclusive authorized distributor of IDPs. Before departure from Iran, you can obtain an IDP by contacting your local duly empowered delegates throughout Iran.
