Thanks guys...I have a couple of questions that have been bugging me, actually.
1. In terms of gettinga CA license, isn't it a bit of a catch 22? I can't get a car without having a license (or drive to the test centre without a license) and yet I can't get a license without having a car to take the test in....
2. I don't have any former landlords. I also won't have good credit on the credit check, because I'm from England so I have no credit at all in the US! The best I could probably do is get a character reference and a letter from my bank stating that I've always had good credit here. But will that be enough?
Again, any input much appreciated!

In terms of the licence, you will probably have to go with a friend who has a car here to take the test. In terms of the apartment, you might have to get a roommate who does have credit here so you both can get an apartment. I would hope someone who has moved here from England (or where you're from) would give you better advice. Good luck!
