Don't bother taking your car to the US. It will cost you shipping and insurance. You'll have to pay an import tax, and certification fees, get the title properly notarized; get the car approved and inspected to finally get the license plates - that's if the car is allowed in the country in the first place. You'll have to get it insured (which will be ...

The standard "on-the-spot fine" for minor and/or imaginary traffic infractions while white is Rp. 50,000. Indonesians may get away with less, the average bule will need to haggle to get even that low. I'd advise you to reconsider renting a scooter though. First, you do need that license to drive legally, and any insurance you may have is likely ...

Depending on which city you are visiting, generally speaking you can use international driving license (if you have one). The problem however lies on the human aspect. Local police doesn't really know about this rule They don't speak english that well. They can be bribed... I know many foreigners riding scooter without proper license in Bali, Lombok or ...

I think it would be best to get in touch with the local department of Indonesian Traffic. Usually it is not allowed as per the country rules but can be applicable if you certify yourself through Indonesian Government Rules. The main reason for not applicable is due to the rules of driving in particular country. Then also it would be best as I said to get in ...

I'll give the answer the other way: as a Belgian who rent cars in USA, prior to coming to USA, I went to my local administration and ordered an international driving license. It is basically a holiday card size 12 pages booklet containing the translation of all my local driving license fields into 4 languages. It has my name and other information on it, has ...

A US license will be fine, especially at any airport hire location (I imagine you plan on landing at Geneva?) Hire cars in Europe normally come with insurance included, although there is also typically a ~€1000 excess for damage to the vehicle, which you can pay an additional (typically vastly overpriced) fee to reduce. I'd be suprised if your US car ...

All the rules regarding non-EU licences are still defined country-by-country. The main piece of EU legislation regarding driving licences is directive 2006/126/EC and it says absolutely nothing on equivalence or recognition of non-EU licences. In the case of France, the relevant rules are defined in Arrêté du 12 janvier 2012 fixant les conditions de ...

http://vosdroits.service-public.fr/particuliers/F1459.xhtml#N1008E According to this official site, for visitors staying 90 days or less, there is no requirement for the licensing jurisdiction to be the place where the driver resides. That may be an oversight, but still, if there's no such rule, it should be fine. You might want to double check with the ...

I'm not convinced there is a general rule for this that could be applied across all EU members, as different member countries have different rules and exemptions. The EU is not a collection of states in the same way that the US is. In your specific case I don't think she would be allowed to use her American license. From the French Licensing Guidelines if ...
