If you are planning to rent a car in Australia, you will need to have a driver's licence that is printed in English. If your licence is in another language, you will need to present an International Driving Permit along with your licence from your country of residence. An International Driving Permit is a translation only, and will not be valid if it is not presented with your original licence.
If you have an International Driving Permit, there are still some important things you need to know before you pick up your car:
A NAATI translation needs to be used in conjunction with your valid driver's licence. You can get your licence translated in Australia by an approved and accredited agency. In Australia, the driver's licence translations will only be accepted if they are translated and approved by a National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) and signed by the translator. Make sure to check the T&C's or contact the supplier to confirm.
