Why would anyone need a second driving licence?
A driving licence is one of the best ways to prove your ID, and as such is widely accepted world-wide, even for many banks throughout the world. Thus, you may want to have an alternative licence for many reasons, perhaps the most obvious one is a security measure just in case they pull out your first one!
- Back-up to a second passport.
- Can often be used for banking as an alternative to a passport.

- A driving licence can be used to prove that your official residence is in a different country.
- What is an International Driving Permit and what is a national driving licence?
- An International Driving Permit, commonly known as an "international driving licence", is actually not a driving licence at all. It is technically a translation of a national driving licence. It is not valid for driving except in conjunction with a national licence.
A national (or state) licence is an officially-issued ID which you MUST have in order to drive. To obtain one of these, you are required to prove competence to drive, for example by taking a test or showing a valid foreign licence.
Regulations vary from country to country, but generally you can drive as a "tourist" on a foreign licence provided your stays do not exceed one year.
A national licence is therefore far better. Rental companies accept national licence's from almost any country, but they will often NOT accept IDP's alone. An IDP (international driving license) may also be required these days.
Can I obtain a national driving licence without taking a test?
Yes, this is possible. PTClub has a contact in three countries including an Asian country that will provide you with a local maildrop and handle all the formalities of obtaining a licence for you, without any need for you to travel there. The document is made at the host country office after hours and therefore is not registered. You are required to sign a sworn statement that you are entitled to hold a licence. This process is valid and the licence is fully renewable. Initial validity is 3-5 years. International DL's are valid for one year only.
This licence is from a major country and is acceptable world-wide for renting autos, banking, check cashing etc.
