I am a UK citizen, planning to work for a few months in Orange County, CA this summer. I am in the process of getting a UK driving licence (& then international driving licence). I plan to buy a car at the start of the summer and sell it at the end.
What's the process like/ what kind of documents do I need? Do I need a CA licence to buy a car? If I have no USA credit score, do I have to pay for the car upfront? What's the process with smog checks/ registration? How long does it take to get a CA licence?
