Pictures are wow @sagar Indian License will work in Malaysia? or do we need to take IDP additionally to drive around in Malaysia?

 

Thank you @Sridhar Tandra. Indian Driving license isn't valid. We need to obtain the International driver's License here after you get your VISA. The process is pretty easy and you would get it on the same day of application.

Thank you @hsudhir. Yeah, We had actually missed out the Langkawi Islands due to lack of time. Have saved Langkawi and Tioman islands for our next trip :D

Thank you @ksa171983. We had gone in the month of June 2016 .. I guess the rules must have got changed from the time of your visit. We were asked to produce the International driving license to rent a car.

We tried to cover the Langkawi but couldn't be possible as it was eating up 2 full days from our plan. We couldn't extend our trip either due to office commitments :( 

We Pangkor island for the Scuba diving and Snorkelling. We could do the Snorkelling but had to skip the Scuba due to heavy rain storm and dark sky (lack of light).

https://autoportal.com/articles/top-10-countries-where-indian-driving-license-is-valid-6707.html

 

This link gives the top 10 countries only :D ..

When i checked the latest news on malaysia they went round and round but there was no clear answer on it ..

 

Haha.. yes, We have done a thorough survey before leaving India and have applied for one. It's valid for 1 year. :) 

Easier option is to email or message the car rental services of that particular country with our queries and they ask us to send a photocopy of our license and answer back if it's valid or not. Hence we can apply accordingly ..
