Who can sell a CPD
CPD is an official product distributed and administered by the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT) and Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and can only be issued by AIT/FIA automobile clubs and authorized distributors in the five continents.
Beware of resellers of unsecured CPDs: even though the look of those papers may be similar to the AIT/FIA CPDs, they don´t offer the same level of safety, guarantee and benefits that an AIT/FIA CPD does.
