Most foreign countries will allow you to drive on your US license for a period of time. For example, I am living in the Philippines and have been here many years. Here a person can drive on any US license for a period of 30 days from date of entry into the country before needing to get a Philippine License.Hello,
I have been summoned to report for jury duty and since I am leaving the country for good, I called the Court. The clerk said that I need to change the address on my CDL otherwise I will keep receiving notices to report for jury duty. So I call the CA DMV. The rep said that I cannot keep my DL and that I will have to drive with my foreign one when I come back to visit. She said I need to fill out form DMV 14. Then she hun… I mean we were disconnected. Form DMV 14 is not meant for foreign countries because it offers two boxes for “State”. The word “France” won’t fit in them.
- Do I have to surrender my CDL? I don’t wanna… And it’s prettier than my French one. I think I’m going to lose it.
- Is there such a thing as a CDL without an address?
- What do I do with a form designed for US states only?
Input welcome. Thank you very much in advance.
There is no reason to give up or turn in your US - California license before you leave there.
I would however call or email the French embassy closest to you to see what laws cover you driving in France with your license to play it safe.
Best of luck
