Can I exchange a Texas license for an Italian license. When I lived in France some states you could.
If not, what if I just drive/ride using my Texas license for several years....
From the US Embassy in Italy:
Unfortunately, there is no agreement for reciprocal recognition of drivers' licenses between the United States and Italy. The Italian Ministry of Transportation has determined that bearers of U.S. driver's licenses cannot obtain an Italian license directly in exchange for a domestic one. Interested individuals must comply with the usual requirements prescribed for obtaining an Italian license, (a written test, a driving test, a medical examination, and pertinent documents).
