Florida Drivers License

International Drivers Permit


If you already have a driving permit from Germany you may not have other requirements to drive vehicles in the United States, if your stay does not exceed 3 months. Many places suggest having an IDP, International Drivers Permit. An International Drivers Permit is only a translation of the information into several languages and not an actual driving license of its own. You must hold a valid license or permit in addition to an IDP.


Getting a Florida Drivers License


Non-US citizens who live in Florida may apply for a Florida driver’s license, as long as they can provide proof that they are legally authorized to be in the United States, and meet all the other requirements. As a foreign national your Florida Drivers License will only be valid as long as you are permitted by the U.S. government to be in America. It will expire at the same time as your visa or other residency documents.

More information regarding drivers licenses and a full list of requirements can be found at the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles website.
