Hi!

There is a thread in a german forum concerning the necessity of an "international driving license" in Florida. If it is necessary or not.

I am travelling to FL since 1997 with my regular driving license and never owned an international driving license. Some travel agencies recommend to have one but nobody ever asked me in FL when i was stopped by police officers. Now i`ve heard that the necessary of the international depends on the State. Is that true?

But how are the rules in FL? Do you prefer the regular ( plastic card) or the int. ( paper ) ?

Is your regular license from Germany? Then yes, you should be able to drive in Florida for up to one year. After that a Florida license is necessary.

The Intl license is a good idea to have if your german license is not in English. The Intl license is a translation of your license, and you must carry both with you (i.e. the Intl license by itself is never enough).

You should be able to keep using your German license, so long as you don't shift your primary residence to Miami, or stay longer than one year.
