CHECKING THE VALIDITY OF ITCA DRIVER'S PERMIT
List of countries members of the UN convention of 1968
ID cards are easy to produce and replicate. Many companies over the internet are, unfortunately, selling what so-called "international driver's permits" or "international driver's document" that have no validity and cannot serve as more than a card bearing the holder's photo. Within this context, and in an unprecedented approach to minimize fraud activity in the domain of using international driver's permit, ITCA took the lead in using technology and automated systems to put an end to such fraud activities. ITCA provides car rental companies and other concerned authorities with a unique online validity-check platform. The platform allows the rental companies designated staff to conduct a quick online check whether the ITCA IDP is fake or authentic. Major car rental companies have credentials to log-in into the system and conduct a less than 30 seconds validation check.
If you are about to lend or rent your vehicle to a customer, you should check whether the person's ITCA driver's permit is valid and bears the appropriate class for the type of vehicle to be driven. Otherwise, your vehicle could be seized and impounded.
TO PERFORM A VALIDITY CHECK, PLEASE USE YOUR LOGIN DETAILS TO ACCESS THE GLOBAL VALIDATION AREA.
You are responsible for ensuring that that person holds a valid driver's permit that bears the appropriate class of permits for the type of vehicle to be driven.
It is not enough to simply inspect the permit
A visual check does not allow you to find out if the permit is authentic or not.
Each ITCA IDP has a unique global reference number issued by ITCA. By entering the GRN into the validity check platform, the system pulls all information related to the IDP including the driver's photo, signature, permit's class, and expiry date. The GRN will also show information related to the national driver's license, the holder used at the time of application for the ITCA IDP.
IF YOU LEND OR RENT YOUR VEHICLE TO AN INDIVIDUAL WHO DOES NOT HOLD A VALID DRIVER'S PERMIT
- Your vehicle could be seized and impounded immediately for 30 days. Should that happen, you will be required to pay the towing and impoundment fees.
- The person driving your vehicle without a valid licence or during a period when their licence was revoked or suspended is liable to a fine of $600 to $3,000, as well as additional fees.
