Driving in foreign countries with a Wisconsin driver’s license

​​​​If you intend to drive in a foreign country with your Wisconsin driver license, it is strongly recommended that you ​carry an International Driving Permit. The International Driving Permit​ is translated into the nine official languages of the United Nations--including English--and can be useful in emergencies such as traffic violations or auto accidents, particularly when a foreign language is involved.​
