Taxi services through companies or on-demand personal drivers are also available in this area for hire.
When using these services, please remember that you are responsible for your own safety. Here are some precautions that you can take when using these services that can help you get home safely:
- Verify the identity of the driver and the car before you get into the vehicle
- Wait inside a building for your ride to come and pick you up
- Keep in touch with family and friends! If something doesn’t feel right, call someone and let them know your location
- Take note of the driver’s rating on the app! Drivers with a good rating are typically liked by the customer for their quality service
How to Get a Driver’s License
Students may drive cars in the US with their international driver’s license. However, if you plan to be in the US more than one year, you are required to get a GA State driver’s license. Since all F-1 visa students I-20s are set for a specific amount of time, we suggest that all F-1 students get GA State driver’s licenses if they will be driving a car.
For the State of Georgia, if your international driver’s license if not in English you will need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP) from your home country. An IDP is a translation of your home-country driver’s license into 10 languages, including English. Click here to learn more about IDP.
To make this process as simple as possible, please review the Steps to Obtain a Driver’s License handout.
