Hi Guys

Will my Swiss DL be valid for renting (and driving) a car in the USA?

thanks

It's not simply "Yes." There are exceptions, namely Michigan, Wisconsin and Vermont, see this very useful post.

I could be in deep shi'ite in Michigan. As long as I stay in our county, there's no problem since I'm good friends with our County Sheriff and know all of his undersheriffs and most deputies. Outside, it's usually my OH that has to drive, just in order not to tempt fate.

I'm glad I got the credit-card-sized CH DL a few years ago. Last summer I got pulled over in our MI county. I'm sure the officer would have had a laughing fit if I had handed him the old blue blanket-sized DL.
