Yes.

As long as the address on the passport and DL is the same, there shouldn't be a problem getting the IDP.

My father has, on two occasions, got an IDP issued from HR26 while his passport/DL is MH12.

Getting this done through the Automobile Association will make it much, much simpler. (read: avoid a visit to the RTO)

Is the IDP issued by WIAA Mumbai accepted in UAE for car rental? Plan to travel later this year or early next year so need some info on this. Has anyone gone through the same route? Would appreciate your inputs. Thanks!

I am also getting IDP for the purpose of renting a car in Dubai when I visit in December.

According to this link -> http://www.dubaifaqs.com/driving-lic...onal-dubai.php, one should be able to rent in UAE using IDP

Just got informed by agent that atleast the DL should have the local address. Now very confused.

Thumbs up Re: The International Driving License (IDL) / International Driving Permit (IDP) Thread

Not soo relevant, but still wanted to share here. Since I gave up my Indian license, I always had problems while visiting India, because I did not have a DL valid for India. So I got my IDL made today for my German driving license. Costs 16 and is valid for 3 years. Took less than 5 minutes at the local office in Stuttgart. German efficiency.

Hi Guys,

My DL is issued in Bangalore (KA01) whereas my Passport has my permanent address (WB state). How can I get my IDP?

So here's interesting news. The new Parivahan site (Link: https://parivahan.gov.in/sarathiserv...teSelection.do) apparently lets you apply for your IDP online. It also seems if your Aadhar card is connected with your DL you may not be restricted by the Passport - DL place of issue restriction. This seems to be the process:
1. Select your state and you'll land on this page: https://parivahan.gov.in/sarathiserv...iHomePublic.do.

2. From the Apply Online drop down click n Services on Driving License to arrive here: https://parivahan.gov.in/sarathiserv...ServicesDet.do

3. Click on continue if the list of services has Issue of IDP mentined (in case of Rajasthan it does). You're good to make an online application and payment too! Haven't tried to complete the application. I would try this in a month's time once my tickets for this year's holiday are booked.

It also allowed me to submit an online application for change of address on my DL.

Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, this is not available for all the states at this time. Only the states mentioned on the Home page have this facility available. Not sure what could be the criteria though.
