If you are planning to drive in different countries around the world, whether it is just for a holiday or whether you are planning to move there full time, make sure that you stay within the law when it comes to driving and car insurance. The Canadian car insurance law is probably very different to the insurance law in Australia, for example.
The legal age limit for driving also varies widely from country to country for example. There are so many variables to take into account before you leave too. For example, you will have to make sure that you have any correct documentation so that you do not fall foul of the law.
In many countries, your regular driving licence is enough for you to drive whereas in others you will also need an International Driving Permit. Some countries also require you to have legal translations of your driving licence into their native language and if you are planning to live in another country, then you may only have a certain period of time allowed before you must apply for a local driving licence.
When it comes to age limits for driving, the legal age limit to hire a car locally may be higher than the actual driving age. So if you do not have your own car then check out the legalities before you try to hire.
No matter what country you are planning to visit or move to, it is prudent to do some thorough research before you head off. The last thing you want to do is find yourself in trouble with the local law enforcement officer!
