In order to operate a vehicle in the United States, you will need to obtain a U.S. driver’s license. If you plan to purchase a vehicle, you will need to register the vehicle and obtain auto insurance.
The Florida DMV website, www.dmvflorida.org, has detailed information regarding driving in the U.S.
You can make an appointment online using this site to obtain your driver’s license (appointments are required).
In addition, the car must be registered in your name or have PIP (Personal Injury Protection Insurance) coverage. Bring your foreign license, passport with student visa, and Form I-20 to your appointment.
