No. Up until several years (5? 7?) ago you could take the exam in English but since then it is only in Italian.Hi All,
Is it possible to take the exam for the Italian patente in English?
I wonder how this would work?no but there is a legal way you can use your american licence over , by taking diferent residency forget the name of the but i shall ask an amecan who has done this watch this space
i will ask the man involved i live near him and he is completly legal and has resedency but not tax rdI wonder how this would work?
An International Driving Permit (which you need to drive even one day in Italy on a US driver's license) is only valid for a maximum of one year.
More importantly, once you establish legal residency in Italy (which you must do in order to stay longer than 90 days, apply for national health care, etc, etc.) you must obtain a patente within one year or stop driving. Of course, I suppose you could lie your way through a typical traffic stop and get away with it. But, should you be involved in an accident? That could be risky.
More precisely, until the year 2012 the Italian Ministry of Transports (which oversees vehicle licensing as well) had the driving exam papers translated in the 7 UN official languages (English, French, German, Spanish Chinese, Russian and Arabic).No. Up until several years (5? 7?) ago you could take the exam in English but since then it is only in Italian.

And, in order to get well prepared, you could make use of this website where you can run a simulation of the written test exam.It looks like I must do the test in Italian but, I must say, studying for the test has helped me learn the language a bit better so in the end it's useful.
Once you (non-EU citizen) become resident in Italy, you have one year to obtain an Italian patente or stop driving entirely. You cannot legally continue to drive on a US driver's license indefinitely as a resident and, of course, you cannot stay in Italy for more than 3 months if you are not.if you have a british licence even old you can renue it and there is no need to take test or for americans you can register as a A;R;e resident and you can drive on your american licence
please check facts , but i know a american who hqas done this
