While the IDP was authorized and implemented within international law, it is not issued by the United Nations but rather by certain non-governmental authorized travel associations. IDPs are not valid within their country of issue. The IDP can accommodate drivers of all types of conveyances from motorcycles and automobiles to heavy trucks and buses (in a non-commercial capacity) and can be used to rent cars, buy cars, cash checks, and to show proof of age.Many people are unaware that when they apply for a state-issued driver’s license, they are, in fact, entering into a contract with the state whereby they are waiving their right and accepting a privilege instead. The privately-issued IDP is non-contractual so you maintain all of your God-given liberties intact and it requires no Social Security Number. However, the IDP does not suspend your obligation to obey the motor vehicle laws and regulations of the jurisdiction in which you’re traveling. If you’re involved in a traffic accident, or if you’re stopped by a police officer who asks for identification, the IDP will present your important information in many different languages.
Wallet-size IDP for use in the U.S.A.!
The passport size, multi-language booklet conforms with the specifications of the Road Convention, but we’ve had many requests for the smaller one, so we can only think that it has worked well for many people. These are printed on postcard stock and laminated. $110 – valid for 4 years.
If you order the wallet-size with a passport-size, the price drops to $85.
