Driver’s License in Pennsylvania

 

If you intend to drive in Pennsylvania, you should know that you cannot get a Pennsylvania driver’s license if you have less than one year remaining on your I-20/DS-2019 at the time of application. If you will be in the U.S. for less than one year, you can drive for up to one year if you have a valid foreign driver’s license and an international driving permit. You must obtain the international permit before leaving your country. Find out where in your country to obtain an International Driver’s Permit: http://www.drivers.com/article/207/.
