First off i'd like to say hi and thanks to everyone, I've been reading around on this forum for quite a while and have gained a great deal of knowledge.
My name's Pavel and I'm a Cypriot currently studying in Cambridge, England. My girlfriend is in VCU in virginia, and this summer we're planning to go on a 10 day road trip around the north-east USA. She'll be living in Jacksonville, NC this summer so that's where we're going to head out from.
It'll take place between 8th-18th of August, and we hope to go up the coast to Maine, then move westwards and on the way back south to pass by niagara falls and go back down to NC further inland. Still don't know where to stop or what to do so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great.
It should work out to something like 3000 miles altogether which for 10 days seems doable.
I do have a question about car insurance though. She'll be buying her own car this summer (in virginia), and we're hoping to both be able to drive it on the trip. She'll be getting her own third party policy on it before I get there.
I found some document/report by some automotive/insurance bureau in Virginia that states that anyone with a valid driver's license can operate the vehicle with the owner's permission and will be covered by the owner's policy.
Does that mean that if she insures it in VA, and is in the car with me and I drive (obviously with her permission lol) that I will be covered? Because on the VA DMV website it says that my full international license can be used in virginia for 6 or 12 months...
Thanks everyone, and I'm sure I'll have many more silly questions as time goes on! :)
