Short term visitors
If you plan on getting your international driver’s permit to drive in the U.S, you need to make sure that you remember a few tips. The first tip is that you will need to arrange your international driver’s permit from the country that you obtained the local driver’s permit since the U.S authorities will not be issuing any international driver’s permits to any foreign traveller. In the event that you need to hire a vehicle, you will need to produce both your country’s permit and the international driver’s permit. You also need to make sure that you know the rental policies and also the requirements for short term visitors when hiring a vehicle at the respective rental company. Remember that there are many scams with regards to the international driver’s permit and one must be very careful when going through this process. Always consult the department of motor vehicles in your respective country to obtain it.
For those individuals who are residents but are not U.S citizens, the requirement for obtaining a driver’s permit in each state will differ. If you are one of the eligible individuals for a driver’s license, then this must be obtained from the state that you live in. You need to refer the requirements, regulations and how you should apply from the respective state’s Department of Motor Vehicles.
