Re: International Driving Permit

I have a US license and quickly need an IDP. I downloaded the Spanish application for the IDP and carefully read the page for Permiso Internacional. This page tells the requisites but not what type of appointment to request, or even if an appointment is needed.

When I tried to make an appointment in Malaga DGT office, it says that I must exactly choose which type of appointment. I tried 'Cita Previa para Canjes de terceros países' - this does not list the US as a possibility.

Trámites de oficina - Trámites de conductores --- Is this what I should choose? they do not specify which process is the one to choose for an IDP.

Thanks for any advice and help!

An IDP can only be issued by the country that issued the driving licence. You can apply by mail but it wont be quick

Thank you! I was afraid of that but found a site in English that directed me to the spanish site. From the US there is a fast delivery option at a high price.
