Types of Driver's Licenses and Permits

International Driver’s License:

An International Driver’s License is not a valid driver’s license and does not allow you to drive.

It is only a foreign translation of your existing valid driver’s license to be used when you are traveling outside of the U.S.

These permits are issued by your local AAA, except to persons whose driving privilege is suspended or revoked.

If you are visiting the U.S. from a foreign country, you may drive using your driver’s license issued by your home country. Your home country driver’s license should be accompanied by a translation of the license.

International driver’s licenses marketed by private sector businesses are not valid and do not allow you to legally operate a motor vehicle. Sale of any document claiming to be a driver’s license is a Class 1 misdemeanor.
