Want to Self Drive when visiting Overseas? Read Further....

Post by traveldiaries » Fri Jan 26, 2018 9:12 am

Well are you a die-hard roadtrippin lover and want to explore self-drive options when you visit out of India, you can do it with an existing Indian Union Driving License with just an additional step.

Your Indian Union Driving License can be used to get a IDP (International Driving Permit) to enable driving overseas.

The below process is for Telangana and by far should be the same for almost all states.


Pre-Requisites:
a. Original Driving License issued by your RTO
b. Four passport size photographs
c. Passport original and carry photocopies
d. Valid Visa for the country you desire to visit along with photocopies
e. Valid tickets (airline or otherwise while being an optional)


Process:
a. Head to the https://tgtransport.net/tgcfstonline/and book a slot for your International DL at the desired RTO center (you can do this one day in advance provided slots are available)
b. Fill in the application form (Specimen for Telangana State - http://www.transport.telangana.gov.in/ ... cation.pdf)
c. Reach the RTO and get the documents verified at given time slot
d. Get the medical test completed
e. Original documents are verified, online form filled by Transport Official
f. Photograph will be clicked and Fingerprints scanned to complete the process

Normally in Telangana, you would be asked to come in the evening to collect your International Driving Permit and Driving License.

The total costs are as below:
Online Application: RS. 650
Addl expenses: RS. 100

Validity: One year from date of issue

Yes it's generic for all countries, enquiring with friends as I read on Google that IDP issued by Telangana Govt is not accepted as valid as the state is not recognized and it is just AP in their records...

Will get back if I hear on it

Thanks for putting the details here Srikanth. 👍

That Telangana angle.. it has been years that the state was formally announced. Still not there in records? Strange!

International records? Don't think that would be an issue. It has to confirm to certain rules that the idp is required to do. The state shouldn't matter.
I also got these for my trip to UK from the local mumbai VFS office. They were able to get me the forms etc sorted in one place. I also think that the drivers license address and the address on the passport needs to be th e same. Don't know how true that is, but heard about this rule.

Yes that's sorted now, at least for those who are looking at temporarily driving for a few months... So happy roads ahead...
