International Driving Permits issued will be valid in countries that have signed on to the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, such as, Bahamas, Brazil, Cuba, France, Italy, and Portugal, among others. Applicants who wish to drive in a country which is not a signatory to the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, must seek permission from that country before an International Driving Permit is issued. It should also be noted that the permit will be valid for twelve (12) months from the date of issue.
The International Driving Permit will not be valid for use in Guyana and must be used in conjunction with a Guyanese Driver’s Licence when driving in a country listed under the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic. Further, the International Driving Permit can only be used for the class of vehicle a person is currently allowed to drive based on their Guyanese Driver’s Licence. International Driving Permits will only be issued at the Licence Revenue Office located at 200-201 Camp Street, Georgetown, Guyana.
