IDP not needed for France, but ...

Jump to last reply

I have always acquired an International Driving Permit when going to Europe, but have never actually had to produce or use it anywhere, even in Italy where it is supposedly a requirement. We leave for France and Spain in 2 weeks and will be doing a lot of driving ... am I correct that there is no such requirement for an IDP in those countries? I have been extremely busy this summer with work and some family matters, and it just occurred to me today that I haven't got one for this trip.

Being superstitious, I'm thinking that the first time I don't get one is precisely when I will need it. Any recommendations or recent experiences on this?

Thanks
