In order to drive in North Carolina, students and scholars must have a valid driver’s license. This may be a valid license from the student/scholar’s home country or a valid North Carolina driver’s license. Students and scholars in possession of a valid license from their home country may drive in North Carolina as long as they intend to return to their country.
We recommend that students and scholars apply for and obtain a driver’s license or N.C. State Identification card in order to use for identification purposes in the U.S. An applicant will have to take several tests when applying for a driver’s license, including tests on vision, traffic signs, regulatory signs, driving knowledge and in some cases a driving skills road test.
