Private Steve said that when he started out as a Florida soldier in central Florida, he remembers meeting them and thinking the driver had arrived at the house.
âAn international driver‘s license is a valid form of driver’s license in approximately 150 countries around the world. It translates the driver’s license from your home country / state into a multitude of different languages, âhe said.
He also added that in order for drivers to receive these permits, they must have a valid driver’s license for the place of residence.
