  International Driving Permit
    The minimum age for Peugeot Open Europe program is only 18 years (with one year's driving experience), and there is no maximum age limit. The only other requirement in this regard is that you've held your valid driving license for at least one year.

Most European countries require only domestic licenses for foreign drivers. However, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Italy, Portugal, and Spain do, by law at least, require non-Europeans to carry an International Driving Permit (IDP) along with their domestic license. Bulgaria and the Czech Republic require all foreign drivers to carry an IDP. Chances are that you will never have to produce your IDP in the above countries, but for peace of mind, you might consider obtaining one.

The local office of your auto club (AAA, CAA, etc.) sells IDPs for about US$21. If you need an IDP, take your license, two passport-sized photos and the requisite cash to the club office. Many clubs take photos on the spot for about $8. In just a few minutes, you'll be licensed to drive on any European road. You may also obtain an IDP on the Internet from IDL International. They offer a 48-hour turnaround.
