I am on F1 Visa. Came to USA on August, 2011. Now I am going to start my OPT and recently got a job offer. As travel is a necessity in the job, they are asking me about the driving licence. I have an Indian Driving Licence, without an International Driving Licence Permit. But as it is already one year of my arrival here in USA, I am afraid I can not use my Indian Licence anymore. (Please let me know your thoughts on this)
Because I changed my state of residence (I shifted to a different state from the state where my school is located) after my coursework is done, I am not able to get learners permit in my current state of residence. (I am still trying for that). So I wanted to know if I can exchange my Indian Driving Licence to USA one in any dmv office. If so, what are the states that allow that? I know that NY allows the same. Kindly help.
Anyhow I need to get an USA licence.
