"In theory, foreign drivers'..." Rio de Janeiro Favorite Tip by Aina

Rio de Janeiro General: 267 reviews and 260 photos


Favorite thing: In theory, foreign drivers' licenses are acceptable. In practice, however, police (particularly highway police) have been known to claim that driving with a foreign license is a violation in order to shake down drivers for bribes. It's best to get an International Driver's Permit, which is seldom challenged.
