Florida drops International Driving Permit law


The US State of Florida has suspended enforcement of its recently introduced law which requires all non-US drivers to be holding an International Driving Permit.

Following this suspension, a valid UK driving license is all that is required for UK tourists to drive in Florida.

The law requiring non US drivers to hold and International Driving Permit came into force in Florida on 1 January and was due to start being enforced by Florida police this week.

The news that this law will no longer be enforced is great news for UK tourists heading to Florida as it means one less thing to worry about when preparing for your holiday.

Whether you are planning on driving or not, travel insurance is vital for any trip to Florida and the USA.

The USA offers some of the best, yet most expensive medical treatment in the world, so if you fall ill or have an accident, the cost of emergency medical care can quickly mount up. If you don't have travel insurance for your holiday to the USA you could find yourself facing large medical bills.
