An 'International Driver's License' (IDL) or 'International Driver's Permit' (IDP) is a document that permits a traveler to operate a motor vehicle when visiting a foreign country. For example, if a U.S. citizen wanted to drive a car while visiting France, the prospective tourist could apply for an IDL. Many con-artists in the United States sell fake IDLs and falsely claim they can replace a license or ID issued by a U.S. state. An IDL is not valid in the driver's home country, and is not a satisfactory form of ID for notarization. Notaries should never accept any document purported to be an 'IDL' as proof of a signer's identity.
