International Driver's License

Many of the travel sights indicate that in order to rent a car in Cape Town it is necessary to have an international driver's license. Where can this be obtained? I have a valid driver's license in the USA.

Some of the car hire companies require an international licence but others do not.I obtained an international licence here in the uk and hired from a company called Vineyard car hire in Cape Town who said they only needed by uk domestic licence.Best to e mail the company concerned first

On annual trips over the last four years my U.K. license has been sufficient .
