Being able to drive at any given point in time is a key skill that you are most definitely going to require in some way, shape or form. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that you can pretty much only ever rely on public transport in the short term since the manner in which society has been organized has ended up making it so that owning a car is more or less essential for you if you want to travel even the shortest of distances.
Getting a driver’s license is therefore essential since it gives you the legal ability to drive any and all cars that are currently on the road, but being able to translate a driving license is also important since you never know when you are going to need to drive in a country other than the one you truly belong to. The great thing about the US is that it is a country that speaks English which means that if you originate in an English speaking nation you are likely not going to have to get a translation at all.
English is among the most widely spoken languages in the world, so there is a relatively decent likelihood that you wouldn’t have to get a translation made if your license has been printed in that language. You will still need to get a license in the first place though so we would recommend that you undertake this process as quickly as you can otherwise you might get levied a hefty fine for attempting to drive without a license.
