How hard is it for a foreigner to get the american drivers license in New York when already having a foreign driverslicense (and an international if that is needed). I've searched through the webpage for NY-DMV, but its hard to get the information. They suggest that you should not obtain the license unless youre planning to move to the state of NY.
The problem is that we are planning to go on a roadtrip, but we are too young to hire a car, and are therefore looking into buying a used one. You need an insurance policy for a car, but the policy gets canceled in 30 days unless you have an american drivers license.
Any suggestions what to do or information about how hard it is to get the license would be appreciated :)
