Q.913 How to get International driving license in Mumbai, India.

Hi Canadian passport + OCI holder residing in Mumbai. Need to apply for IDP to drive in Canada. Documents I have are : Canadian Passport OCI Card PAN Card Aadhaar Card Indian drivers Licence Please let me know how to apply for an IDP and what the cost and procedure is. This is a very urgent requirement as need to travel to Canada within month. I've checked with RTO agents and WIAA and both are clueless. Regards Vanessa Answer:  Information on how and where to get an International driving license (IDP) is provided below. However, I don’t think you can get IDP from India as applicants must have an Indian passport to apply. Western India Automobile Association (WIAA) are authorized to issue International driving permits (IDP) to their members only. Unless you are a member, there is no point in contacting them for issue of IDP. The Motor Vehicle Department of Maharashtra is the other source where International Driving Permits are issued. The basic requirements to apply for IDP are: Application for International Driving License on FORM 4A [ Sample Form HERE] Valid Indian driving License along with certified copies Passport along with certified copies Proof of Residence Visa along with certified copies [visa refers to visa of country where you are traveling to and intend to use IDP] Medical Certificate in Form IA - [Sample Form HERE] Payment of prescribed fees [About Rs. 500] Please note forms shown are for sample purposes and may differ in format depending on the State in India. Kindly visit the appropriate authorized office to get latest form. Note: There are reports of unauthorized third parties using the Internet to advertise easy issue of International Driving Permits (IDP). Applicants should ensure they are dealing with legitimate offices and not pay for IDP’s that may be fake. Additional Info available at: Get International driving license in India –  IDP in India
