I am in the USA on a F1 visa. I also have a MA Driver's License slash Real ID. I am visiting the UK later this month to attend a conference. A friend (in UK) advised I should get some additional paperwork that shows I am allowed to drive in the US with a F1 student visa. I am not quite sure what that means. Do I need to get additional paperwork? I have read on several places on the Internet stating that I should have no problem driving in the UK with my US license (provided that I am only there for a small number of days and do not intend to get a resident status). I am confused after my friend gave me the advise. What should I do?
