International driving Permit (license) in dubai UAE-ATCUAE

International Driving license in UAE Dubai, Abudhabi, Sharjah by ATCUAE. Those who are planning to drive in a foreign country holding UAE driving license are advised to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) from the Automobile and Touring Club of UAE .Official IDPs are issued exclusively in the Emirates by the ATCUAE.UAE nationals and expatriates heading overseas are warned that they could land in serious trouble by using unofficial International Driving Permits.In the event of an accident when driving overseas, anyone using an unofficial IDP may find that their insurance is invalid.

The IDPs were established by the United Nations in 1949 & 1968 to overcome difficulties faced by motorists travelling in foreign countries in view of widely varying drivers license requirements.

While many countries now allow visitors to use their domestic driving licenses when traveling abroad, this can lead to language problems, and an International Driving Permit has a number of advantages.

It is proof that the holder has a valid driving license in their own country. It is also printed in ten languages – the five United Nations official languages, English, French, Spanish, Russian and Chinese, as well as German, Arabic, Italian, the Scandinavian languages and Portuguese.

This helps overcome language barriers between drivers and police, while the document can also be a useful form of identification in the event of a lost passport.
