Non-Residents

If you are a non-resident temporarily living in Virginia, you may drive with your home state or country driver's license and license plates for no more than six months.

New Residents

Within 60 days of moving here, you must obtain a Virginia driver's license. 

 

 

 

 

Like which of those are right?

I dont really know anything about your visa, but if you have a greencard etc you definetely count as a new resident im guessing.

You are usually considered a resident for state purposes when you occupy a residence in that state, work in that state, or take other actions toward LIVING in that state, etc........

Ok, so I would change my European license within the first 30 days, and it is legal to drive 30 days, If I get all this right in Nevada.

 

Yeah but sometimes they take your German license too. Which I wouldn’t let them do that!

Well, license from another COUNTRY might be different from license form another STATE.

First of all, check whether you need to take an additional test. Here in Arizona (hi to Phoenix) ONLY Germans and one other country worldwide, I forgot which, did not have to take a written or practical test and could get the AZ license (that was 2015, so you never know).

Also, the German license was good for the first 90 days.

I went to the MVD in Tucson, that was after marriage, AOS was in the works, but no greencard yet, and they wanted EVERYTHING: My German passport, my German drivers license, my marriage license (original), my social security card (original), the AOS letter... and then they disappeared for half an hour and finally gave me a license that was good for a year or so. They admitted they had to look up what to do and phone around. Not a common case, I gues...

And, of course, they are not supposed to take the German license... defend it with claws and teeth.

It seems that Nevada has no full reciprocity with Germany. It does with Taiwan... Just goes to show each state is different.

 

In Arizona it is:

Driver license applicants who have a current/valid driver license from one of the countries listed below may not be required to take a road skills or a written test.
Countries with Reciprocity

Country Road Test Written Test
Canada Waive Waive
Germany Waive Waive
Taiwan (age 18 or older) Waive Waive
South Korea (age 18 or older)  Waive

Waive
