Strictly speaking, you can drive in Indiana with your driver’s permit from home. However, to minimize inconvenience, it would be best to obtain an Indiana driver’s license if:
- You do not have a driver’s license from your home country.
- You have been, or plan to be, in the United States for more than one year.
In any case, you should learn the laws of the road and the requirements of driving a vehicle in the U.S. If you get stopped by the police or are involved in an accident, IU Student Legal Services may be able to help you.
