Driver's License in India

To drive in India, a full valid driver's license from the country of residence is required and must have been held for a minimum of one year. UK licence holders need to present the photocard.

 

An International Driver's Permit (IDP) is needed for foreign drivers who want to rent a car in India.

Please note that an International Driving Permit (often referred to as an International Driver's License) cannot replace the requirement for a regular driver's license. And you must carry your current overseas driver’s license and IDP with you all the time when driving in India.

 

Age Requirement


The minimum age to drive in India is 18 years (age may vary by car category). If you're under 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee. If you're 71 or older, you may have to pay a senior driver fee.
