Why do you need an IDL when driving abroad?

Your IDL is a valid form of identification in 184 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information in the 16 most widely spoken languages in the world – it is understandable to most of the local officials and authorities of the countries you visit.

In no way does it diminish the obligation of the holder to a valid driver’s licence and passport with them at all times when driving overseas. A valid IDP does not allow you to drive if you are not carrying your original country’s valid driver’s licence and passport at the same time.
