Can I get a drivers license?
Due to recent changes in the law, international students have some restrictions to getting a driver's license in the state of Massachusetts. Please see below for some basic information:
International students must have a visa good for at least 12 months to begin the license process
Most students attending MAIA only have a 9-11 month I-20 which makes a student ineligible to get a license
You may look into beginning the process once you have been accepted and have your new I-20 for your university
The USA does not allow students to drive with a Chinese license; so even if you learned to drive in China, driving with that license here is not allowed
