How to Get a Driver's License 

Students may drive cars in the US with their international driver’s license. However, if you plan to be in the US more than one year, you are required to get a GA State driver’s license. Since all F-1 visa students I-20s are set for 14 months, we suggest that all F-1 students get GA State driver’s licenses if they will be driving a car.

For the State of Georgia, If your international driver's license if not in English you will need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP) from your home country. An IDP is a translation of your home-country driver's license into 10 languages, including English. Click here to learn more about IDP

To make this process as simple as possible, please review the Steps to Obtain a Driver's License handout. 

The IEP Office every session provided students with the opportunity to visit the Department of Drivers Services. We take a group of students to the Department of Drivers Services on the second Friday after the start of a new session at 8:30am. To attend this trip, please sign up on the office bulletin board located in the IEP Office.
