Florida’s international driving permit will soon be a thing of the past.
The law, which required non-U.S. citizens who wished to drive in Florida to obtain the additional permit, was put through as part of a larger bill.
“The old law that created all the controversey in the first place, is not now being enforced, nor will it ever be enforced,” said Prior Smith, the host of a syndicated radio news program serving Canadians in the U.S.
While the process to reverse it is now underway, Smith said it could be 60 days before the law is eliminated.
The CAA is still encouraging Canadians to obtain the permit until the law is officially removed.
The politician responsible for the law has admitted it was a mistake and has since apologized.
