How to Obtain An International Driving Permit?

If you are planning a trip outside of Singapore and intend to drive, here is what you can do.

With your Singapore driving licence, you will be able to drive in certain countries. However, you'll need an international driving permit from Singapore in order to get behind the wheel in some other countries.

For example, if you need to drive a car in Australia, you won't need to apply for an international driving permit from Singapore because your Singapore driving licence will be recognised there. However, if you intend to drive in Japan, you will need to obtain an international driving permit from Singapore.

In Singapore, applying for an international driving permit is a simple process. All you have to do is apply to the Automobile Association of Singapore. You will be charged a $20 annual fee. You will be charged an additional $5 if you apply online, and your international driving permit will be ready in seven working days. You can also submit your application to the Automobile Association's offices, along with your NRIC and driving licence. It will expedite the process of obtaining your international driving permit and allow you to use it abroad.
