Apostille – Driving Record Certification for Use Overseas

Driving Record Certification for Use OverseasWhen driving in a foreign country with a U.S. issued driver’s license, you still must show that your license is valid to be used outside of the country. Due to the recent terrorist attacks around the world, showing proof of who you are when driving abroad is critical and an apostilled copy of your driver’s license can provide that validation.

A Certified U.S. Driving Record, also known as a Driver Abstract, is a document issued by the U.S. government that serves as proof to other countries that you are qualified to drive in the United States. Most U.S. states require the person who needs the Abstract to apply for the document themselves but it can also be ordered online in most cases.

Tip: If you are traveling abroad and are required to provide proof of your driver’s license to a foreign authority that will not accept the apostilled copy of your license, you can go online to your U.S. state’s Department of Motor Vehicle’s page and order a Driver Abstract. Be sure to order a certified copy, which can be apostilled and used abroad. If you cannot order online, call your state’s DMV and ask if you can mail a request for the abstract.

If you have additional questions about obtaining a Certified Driving record/Driver Abstract, feel free to contact us.
