We are travelling to Cape Town in March 2006. Do we need an international drivers liscence if we hire a car??
No - I drive in South Africa every year on a UK licence. I think the ruling is that it must be printed in the English language or certain Others i.e. Afrikaans. In addition it was only this year that I had a new UK licence including photograph. So you should be ok. I'm sure one of the South African contributors will correct me if I'm wrong.
