I picked up an IDP at the post office today. £5.50 over the counter service, very good indeed! It has my licence details in several languages, photo ID plus a few other official looking stamps. It’ll be a handy addition to my official looking papers, in case I need it.
Thinking about it, I should have got two if that’s possible. A spare would have been handy in case this one gets lost. Hindsight is a handy thing isn’t it? Oh well.
On the application form you have to tick a box next to each country you’re planning to visit. The bloke behind the counter looked a bit bored, but suddenly got very interested when he saw how many countries I’d ticked!
Be a good idea too to make some decent copies of your licence. When you get pulled up by cops in dodgy places for no reason, you won’t be worried about not getting your licence back if you don’t fork out the ‘fine’. Saw this tip on AdvRider…
