  •  No. The so-called permits mentioned in this diary (6+ / 0-)

    are not driver's licenses and are not legal documents.  They are not IDs.  At most, the facilitate translation for someone too stupid to put 2 and 2 together and realize that that thing that looks like a birthdate next to "fecha de nacimiento" actually is a birthdate.  Duh.  Between all the information already contained in a foreign traveler's passport and home country driver's license, these phony international permits really serve zero purpose.

    •  Funny true story (5+ / 0-)

      An Garda Síochána (the Irish Police) thought they had identified a Polish driver, a Mr Prawo Jazd, as one of the worst they had come across.

      He had been wanted from counties Cork to Cavan after racking up scores of speeding tickets and parking fines.
      However, each time the serial offender was stopped he managed to evade justice by giving a different address.
      But then his cover was blown.
      A guard pointed out that they were looking for somebody called "Driver's licence"
