Well, dealerships and insurance companies are very strict now, and it would depend on what dealership or insurance agency you're planning on working with. On the insurance, it may be a problem because some agencies just deal with people who have a license in that state. And because you have an international license, your rates may be high anyway. I suggest that you call around to check up on that.

I hope that I was a little helpful to you.

Yes, Progressive offers auto insurance even if you hold a International Drivers License but you need to own or lease a car to get it. They do not offer insurance on a rented car.

While it may be difficult to get your own policy while driving on an International Driver's License, I have found that often you may be added, as a rider, to the policy of a U.S. resident. If you have friends or family, tell them to ask their insurance agent, or have the agent check with the underwriters since the agent may be unfamilliar with this.

Sure,, auto insurance is most commonly purchased by visitors at the time of a car rental. When we rent a car and purchase the accompanying daily insurance.

Just make sure you have a valid drivers license either an international license or one from your home country and you'll have no problem purchasing insurance.
