Procedure to Apply for International Driving license in Maharashtra

The International Driving License permits Indian citizens with valid Indian driving licenses to drive abroad legally. An International Driving Permit (IDP) is an identity document that allows the holder to drive a private motor vehicle in any country that recognizes IDP. To be valid, the IDP must be accompanied by a valid driving license. Individuals holding a valid Indian driving license who are traveling overseas may desire to drive while abroad. However, their Indian license may not be valid in those countries, necessitating the need to acquire an International Driving License. The license is easy to acquire and can be applied for before the applicant embarks on his/her trip abroad.
