The Unofficial International Driving Document issued by the International Automobile Association is a translation of a national driver's license which diminishes the difficulties connected with various language barriers and adds comfort to the motorist’s journeys in different territories. However our Unofficial International translation of driver's license has no official status and does not confer any legal privileges or rights on consumers. International Driving Permit issued by government agencies or private organizations designated by a country's government are the only official translations of a person driver's license.
While many countries do not have organizations similar to the American Automobile Association (AAA) in the USA, which provides International Driver Permit, our organization offers an alternative way to overcome language differences when traveling.
The style that we carry is very straight forward and easy to understand. The English data is numbered with a foreign language translation adjacent to it for easier comprehension.
The Unofficial International Driving Document issued by IAA consists of two parts, a plastic card and a booklet. The motorist should carry both at all times, along with the original valid license.
We also keep a database of all our members which is securely located on our web page. The person who obtained The Unofficial International Driving Document at our office can follow up with status by entering his or her name in the "check your Status" window.
Another advantage of an The Unofficial International Driving Document: There is no official test required because it is a translation of your original driver's license. It is printed in 8 languages - the six United Nations official languages (English, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic and Chinese) plus German & Japanese.
The Unofficial International Driving Document is not the legal equivalent to the International Driving Permit (IDP), which is the official document required abroad for driving and renting a car.
If you are a bearer of the valid US Driver's license and you travel outside the United States or US territories, we recommend you to contact AAA office for additional information.
