Change to Florida law requiring a driving permit for foreigners:

Florida repeals international driving permit for foreigners

Yesterday by unanimous vote, the Florida House of Representatives repealed a law introduced in January of this year that required foreigners visiting the state to have an international driving permit. The bill will now go to the Florida Senate where it is expected to pass and become law next week.

The initial law was quietly introduced on January 1, 2013 and was found to violate the Geneva Convention on Road Traffic (1949), an international treaty to which the United States is a signatory. Treaties to which the United States is a party preempt state laws in conflict with them.

IBAO compliments the Canadian government on taking action quickly which resulted in the suspension of the enforcement on February 14, 2013.

As a reminder, under Florida's laws, international visitors still must have a valid license from their country of residence to drive in the state.
