Obtaining an International Driver's Permit

driver's license

An International Driver's Permit allows you to be able to driver in non-English speaking countries. It also comes in handy in some English speaking countries (in the Caribbean) that may try to charge you for a license when renting a vehicle. Some insurance companies also offer discounts for drivers who have this license so it is handy to have one if you are a world traveler. On an unofficial note, you may avoid some "hassle" in some English-speaking countries if you are stopped by police and present your T&T Permit along with the International Permit.
