Hi Dave,

Normally you do not need a permit for a certain period of time, I know for my Aussie liscence I was able to use that for up to 12 months before having to get a UK one. The best place to look is on the DVLA website, www.dvla.gov.uk, you should be able to find out from there!

Have a good trip!

Your US liscence will be enough, as long as you are 18+
