There’s nothing like an international driving holiday and if the thought of a lot of paperwork and permit was stopping you, then here is the list of countries you can drive against your Indian driving license.

United States of America

You can drive against your Indian driving licence in the USA for a year. All you have to do to is make sure that your license is valid and is in English. You need to have an I-94 form, which shows the date you entered the country and you might need an international driving permit as well. (Drives on the right)
