The traffic departments of all African Countries passed the law which requires that travelers applying to rent a motor vehicle be in possession of a valid “International Drivers Permit/License“. Should travelers not be in possession of an International License, they will not be permitted to hire a vehicle in Africa.
Anyone using motor vehicles, other than hired ones, (i.e. making use of a company or friend’s vehicle etc.), they will STILL need to be in possession of such license. Anyone driving without a valid driver’s license (either domestic or International) will incur penalties should they be stopped by the police. Licenses will NOT be issued to foreign visitors upon arrival to Africa. Travelers must be advised to carry their Foreign Drivers License as well as their International license.
