Students ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED from renting/driving any type of motor
vehicle during the program.
Should you decide to rent a car BEFORE or AFTER the program, you need
to know the following information:
An International Driving Permit (IDP) is officially required to
drive in Spain. Driving without one is equivalent to driving without a
license. The policemen take this infraction very seriously.
An IDP application may be obtained from the AMERICAN AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION
