Students are encouraged to obtain a Pennsylvania State Driver's License if they plan to drive in the United States. Please note that several states, including PA, require that a nonimmigrant have at least six months remaining on your qualifying immigration document to be eligible for a license.
If you have a license from your home country, you can use that to drive in the US for up to one year. Please visit a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Office. The closest office to WCU is: 225 Lancaster Avenue, Malvern PA 19355 1-800-932-4600
