I am from the UK and am planning to spend a year travelling in North America, purchasing and travelling in a skoolie. I wonder if anyone can help me with some border and permit questions as I'm getting mixed messages from official channels.
International Drivers Permit
Do I need one or is a UK license ok? IDP will only tell me it is 'recommended in some states'. That does not suggest it is essential, just that they want me to buy one!
I have read that you need to set up a temporary import if you are travelling into Mexico and that this is not an option for a UK driver, even if they own their US vehicle. Has any non-American travelled in a skoolie across the border?
I have also read that no temporary import is needed for Baja. Does that mean as a UK citizen I could go there?
I know you also need your own mexican insurance - is this easy for UK cititzens?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
