It is difficult for international students and students to obtain a license to operate a motor vehicle if they are under the age of 18. Of course, without a license, an international student is forbidden to drive. Not only can the student get in trouble, but you can too if the student drives your vehicle. If a student is over 18, students can take a driving course with an instructor and obtain a license. Licensed students over 18 who choose to drive will need to have their own vehicle and insurance coverage.
