The IDP issued by the AAA would be according to the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffic. Myanmar wasn't a party to that, but in June 2019, Myanmar ratified the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, which replaced the Geneva convention. So an American IDP, based on the older, superseded treaty, would no longer be valid. Note that the AAA form you're ...

Yes you can rent in one place and return to the company in an other. This of course only works with a company with locations in both places which is willing to accept it. Depending on the company they may charge extra for the different location. Car rentals start from half a day, or even shorter, or a single day, again depending on the company. One thing ...

yes it's possible, many rental companies offer such a service. If you perform a search on autoeurope.it (a rental car broker service which I usually use) you will find plenty of options and companies. Keep in mind that picking the car in one location and giving it back in a different one is usually more expensive than using the same location.

In Russia's legal system, there is a distinct difference between criminal offence (уголовное преступление) and anything else: "administrative", i.e. civil, offence or fines imposed by road police. If your driving offence can be considered criminal, then yes, you should. If it can't, then better skip it. What kind of court settled your case? Did you get any ...

On an archived version of the application form, it asks: Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any offence? You said your partner was convicted for a driving offence, therefore the answer is yes. He shouldn’t get a refusal simply on the basis of that, there are other factors to consider as well.

This is a mistake. Driving isn't book knowledge. Driving is about experience. Don't attempt to drive in a foreign country until you've racked up years of daily experience driving at home. That is why the process to get a license is so tortuous. And you shouldn't circumvent that by ticking away the months with little actual driving in that time. ...

This is impossible as you need to hold a learners licence for at least 6 months before you take the test. From the AA Website: You must be 16 1/2 or older and have held a learners license for at least 6 months to take your restricted practical test.

It is possible to cross by ferry as mentioned by this website: Ferry The car ferry Meersburg - Constance that can also be used by pedestrians or cyclists, makes trip planning even more flexible. There is another car ferry shuttle service between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn.

If the accident involved a hire car, the hire company will have enough information about you for the police to trace you in your home country, eventually. One of my work colleagues in the UK took a vacation in Australia, and unknowingly was picked up by a speed camera for exceeding the limit in a hire car. He received the paperwork requesting payment of a ...

IANAL but: If your boyfriend had the appropriate driving licence and insurance to drive the car, whether through eg 3rd party cover on a private car via the owner’s insurance, or rental company insurance, and he has a) notified the owner and insurer/rental company of the incident; and b) exchanged contact and insurance details with the driver of the ...

It'll depend on first, whether or not they raise an issue. If not, all good. If they do, however... Some countries work with each other if you've broken the law, so leaving may not help you avoid it, and may just make it worse for you. You'd also potentially have trouble if you ever wanted to come back to Australia. Also they can share the black mark ...
