Driving in the U.S.

iconFrom the CT Department of Motor Vehicle guidance on the International Driver Permit (IDP):


Students and Visitors to Connecticut:
An IDP (International Driver’s Permit) is not considered a valid license. It must accompany the valid foreign license. Connecticut permits a student or visitor to operate a motor vehicle in Connecticut for a period of up to one year with his or her foreign license. If the license is in a language other than English or Spanish, the license must be accompanied by an IDP which serves as an English translation of the foreign license.

Note: Out-of-country licenses are not acceptable as a form of identification.
