Not being a seasoned traveller I would have thought one was needed anyway outside the EU, big deal, just get one before you go, why should we be any different, we expect ex EU overseas drivers to have an IDP to drive in the UK, the trouble with Brits is we still think we rules the waves, err we haven't for a very long time.
thanks for the heads up, we are meeting with John's son today to finalise our trip to florida, have bookmarked the article to show 'the boys' although may have to get one myself too, Got to have one designated driver
It looks like the only people who may insist on it are the "jobsworths" at the car hire companies.
Silly thing is that the idea of the law was to ensure the "good 'ole boys" had a licence with all the information in English.
All an IDP (in addition to a UK licence) does, is to ensure they have it in French as well
