Apply for an international driving permit

If you hold a Northern Territory (NT) driver licence and you're planning on driving or hiring a car overseas, you should get an international driving permit (IDP).

IDP is also known as an international driver licence.

In many countries, it's a requirement.

Your Australian driver licence may not be enough to ensure you can drive or hire a car in another country.

You can apply for an IDP through the Automobile Association of the Northern Territory (AANT) and must do so before leaving Australia.

To find out how to apply for a permit, go to the the AANT website.
