NEW! You Won’t Require An International Driving Permit To Drive In Florida

Morning all,

When it comes to Florida car hire there’s nothing like complicating matters andflorida senate amendment as we reported back in February thats exactly what the Florida senate decided to do. By altering driving laws so that non-residence required an international driving permit it placed unnecessary cost and stress upon UK holiday makers everywhere.

Now we are pretty sure that the state of Florida didn’t do this on purpose, the idea of the alteration was to make it easier for Florida highway patrol to read and understand driving licences written in a foreign language (not English) and it is to their credit that they have acted quickly in overturning this law.

Spotted by U.S. Rent A Car customer, Darren Greaves, the Florida Senate yesterday passed a new bill (HB 7059) removing these restraints.

Driver Licensing; Revises provisions for exemption from obtaining driver license issued by this state; removes requirement that certain nonresidents possess an International Driving Permit; provides that nonresident of certain age possessing valid noncommercial driver license issued outside this state may operate noncommercial motor vehicle in this state; provides for retroactive application.

Looks like this drama is finally over and I sincerely hope the Florida Senate stays as far away from driving licence amendments as possible, :-)
