When moving to a new country, with all of the details required to prepare for life abroad, it can be easy to overlook the concept of driving in that country. The need for a car and a driver’s license is entirely dependent on what city you are in, as some cities have better public transportation than others. But either way, it is always good to be prepared should you find that a car is needed when you arrive.

In the United States, international driving permits (IDP) are not required, though on occasion rental car companies may request one. If you plan to rent a car upon arrival, it is important to brush up on the rules of the road in the state you are moving to. The Department of Motor Vehicles offers a variety of resources for educating yourself online before you ever arrive in country. These same resources will be helpful if you decide to get a driver’s license after you arrive.

If you choose to get a car after you arrive in America, you will also need to register it with the DMV and get car insurance. (Progressive, Geico, & State Farm are all popular choices, but feel free to look around for the best rates and coverage) Read more
