You know that you know how to drive. You have been behind the wheel ever since you were legally allowed to do so, but the truth is the rest of the world doesn't know this. In many cases if you travel abroad an you want to be able to drive in that country you have to have proof of ability to drive and it has to be in the country's official language. If you are lucky and you speak the language of the foreign land, you can do the translation yourself, but this isn't usually the case. In most cases you have to find a certified translator to take on your driver's license translation project in order for the translation to be deemed valid. So if you are planning to drive abroad, check the laws in the country to which you intend to travel.
