Myself and 3 friends of mine are all currently on gap years. We are looking
into traveling around america and canada! We have looked and flights and
have done research in to the trip but we still have a few questions which
hopefully you can help us answer.
The route we would take would be done over a 2 month period. We would fly to
San diego, travel up the west coast, then go onwards into canada where we
would then head east to Calgary Canada to fly home!
Our means of travel would be to buy a car and insurence in san diego and
drive the route ourselfs! We are all 18/19 and all hold full clean UK
driving licences which we have all had for over 1 year. What are the laws on
driving in america? Are we legally aloud to buy a car in america and drive
with our English licences? If we are how would go about doing this, do we
need an American address to register the car or could we use our english
addresse's? How would we go about getting insurence on the car, would we
have to wait untill we were out there to do so or can we get
some sort of travel car insurence?
Any help and information would be greatly appreciated.
