IDP Application for Foreign Countries

Did you know that we can facilitate and assist with the application process for holders of valid United Kingdom (UK) and United States of America (USA) licenses?

Please note the AA will no longer apply for International Driverís Permit on behalf of people who have obtained permanent residency in South Africa . However the applicant will be entitled to make this application in their personal capacity.

The AA will still assist with the IDP application process for holders of valid UK and USA drivers licences, visiting South Africa. 

However the process takes approximately 8-12 weeks
