An IDP is highly recommended, when travelling in other countries. It not only provides important information from your local driving licence in various different languages but, also serves as verification of your local driver’s licence.
According to the United Nations Convention – Road Traffic Act of 1968, the IDP must be used in conjunction with your Zimbabwean driving licence and when requested by a law enforcement officer, both the local and the IDP should be presented. The IDP is valid for THREE years’ and is useful when hiring a vehicle or should you be involved in an accident, some foreign countries may dispute your local driving licence.
The IDP may be purchased from the AAZ Branch Offices.
The AAZ Driving School, Discounts, Carnets, Key Recovery, Maps, Local and Foreign Information, Vehicle Operating Costs and many more are all offered to AAZ members.
