a translation of your driving licence is no longer required in Brazil

July 9, 2010 | By More

Up until recently foreigners were required by law to present a sworn translation of their driving licence along the original document every time they intended to drive a car in Brazil. A new resolution (you can read the details in Portuguese at Fim da tradução para carteira de motorista estrangeiro no Brasil) puts an end to that requirement and allows tourists to simply present their original driving licence along with an ID card (preferably your passport).

Rental car companies are celebrating the news, anticipating an increase in their volume of business. Good news for everyone!
