Yes you can. I write auto insurance all the time, as well as property insurance for Foreign drivers, property owners and investors. Visitors to the U.S.A. commonly have a need for auto insurance while in the states, especially when here for extended periods of time where it makes little sense to buy it by the day from a rental car agency. Almost every major insurer in America and even smaller ones have no problem insuring a foreign driver.

Just show the Insurance Agent your license issued to you in your home country or you can show them an international drivers license that is valid in all United Nations member States.

Yes you can buy auto insurance using you international driving license. I know this because i have done it. Just call up an insurance broker, tell them your situation and they can usually help. As far as i know State Farm are the only ones that require a State License.

We are from Norway and have insurance through Progressive for our automobile and our travel trailer. You can fill everything out on-line and receive your policy information, proof of insurance (card) and everything in the mail. (we have a U.S. mailing address)

Is this a tourist question, a driving question - or a trick question?FLYING to Hawaii has nothing to do with whether or not you have an international drivers license or, for that matter, ANY kind of drivers license.DRIVING in Hawaii with an international drivers license, once you arrive there, should not be a problem. A tourist driving with an international drivers license is acceptable in the US.

Provisional license insurance is insurance for people who have a provisional drivers license. A provisional license is for drivers under the age of 16 who are driving with a learners permit or a person who has previously had a license revoked or suspended and who has recently obtained a new license.

As far as I can determine, there is no "international driving permit" that is independent of your drivers license. There are several "international driving permit" forms available from Automobile Associations and such, but these are basically translations of the information shown on your domestic drivers license into several different languages. They must be used in conjunction with your home drivers license; they have no validity on their own.

If your spouse has no drivers license and does not drive, then no, you don't have to include them on your auto insurance policy. Actually, they have to have a drivers license before they can be added to the policy.

You may need two forms of identification, your drivers license being one of them. Check with your insurance agent.

Yes, if they run your information through the interstate system. When you apply for auto insurance, the insurance company checks your driving history via your name/dob/social security/drivers license number. The insurance company can see tickets/accidents recorded in other states and will base your insurance rate upon your driving history. If you have a drivers license in two different states, you are committing a crime in at least one state.

Drivers caught with no insurance for the second time would have their driving license confiscated. They will also be arrested and will be liable for persecution.

According to the DMV & foreign visitors association, a US drivers license is mandatory regardless of whether or not an individual has an international drivers license for driving in the US. You may also double check that your employee had a valid international drivers license and not a forged or fake one.

No if you have a license no, but if you have a vehicle you have ot have a license.

Often out of state tickets will not show up on your license if you just pay them. Failing to pay a ticket brings it to the attention of the state, and it gets put into the state drivers license database. Once that happens, the insurance companies get a copy of it and it affects your insurance rates.

Car insurance is available to anyone that has a valid drivers license regardless of age. Insurance for teen drivers is usually high because they do not have a lot of experience driving.
