Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,

We have Indian driving license. Will be able to drive car in UK with the same for 4 days. Do we need international driving permit as well?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ruchika Kedia,

Thank you for your enquiry received on 24/5/2018.
Your case reference number is 00624226.

I appreciate you contacting DVLA to seek clarification on the matter.

You don't need an International Driving Permit. 

You can drive cars and motorcycles shown on your Indian driving licence
for up to 12 months from when you last entered GB (as long as the driving
licence remains valid). 

If you also hold valid lorry and bus entitlement you can only drive these
vehicles if they have been registered outside of GB and temporarily

I hope this information is useful.
