• I ordered my permit online – when will I get it?

    Your IDP will be processed and then delivered via Australia Post. For orders within Australia, allow  3–8 business days for it to arrive. If your postal address is overseas, the delivery time will depend on where you are and the postal services available. If it hasn’t arrived and you’re concerned, please drop in to your local RAA Shop or call us on 8202 4600. You can also send an email to the Australian Automobile Association at international@aaa.asn.au

  • Is it too late to get a permit when I’m overseas?

    Definitely not. You can apply online or download the application and post it to RAA. Just be sure to include your overseas postal address so we can send it to you. 

  • Is there a digital version of my permit?

    No. Your international driving permit is a passport-sized booklet that you’ll need to have with you, as well as your Australian driver’s licence.

  • Can an L or P-plater apply for an IDP?

    You must have a current Australian Driver’s Licence to apply for an IDP – a provisional licence is okay, but L-platers aren’t eligible. 

  • Can I get a replacement IDP if I’ve lost mine?

    Unfortunately, we don’t keep copies of your IDP, so you’ll need to apply for a new one.
