Skip to comments.Can I drive my car into Mexico without an American drivers license?

It isn't important why I dont have a drivers license.
There are numerous reasons why the DMV will not issue you a drivers license, from MADD to child support issues.
But if I drive down to the border, will I be asked for a drivers license?
What are the chances of being asked for a drivers license?
And if I am asked for a drivers license and cant provide one, what might happen?
And the same questions for coming back.
I know I will need a passport for coming back into the US and I have that. But will I need a drivers license to get my car back into the US, as well.
Thanks in advance to the smartest people in the world here on Free Republic.
It is my dads car.
It depends. Do you want to come back?
Do you really think Mexico will let you stay without identification? They jail their illegal immigrants.
Fly or take a bus. Also, i believe that they will want to make sure your car is not staying in Mexico anyway.
Who the hell do you think your dealing with when you come back to the states?
That is a border patrol/customs checkpoint.
Of course you need a license.
Have you ever been to Mexico? Take someone who knows what their doing. It sounds like you don’t.
If you’re near San Diego, why don’t you just take the trolley down to the border and cross at San Ysidro? Take your passport, other forms of ID if you have that and plenty of money. That way you won’t have to worry about driving here or there without a license.
your is you’re
and their is they’re
I hate when I do that.
Did you read that story yesterday about the American vet they have chained to his bed in a Mexican prison? Don’t mess around. “Justice” in Mexico is not what you want to deal with. It’s politically incorrect to say, but Mexico is totally third world. It’s a drug cartel paradise. And HATES gringos to boot.
Mexico is totally corrupt and foreigners have no rights without embassy pressure. Peasants flood over the border for a reason. Also, when you travel to Mexico, if you get injured, you have to pay up front cash for any medical care. They will be happy to let a foreigner die.
Justice means nothing if a corrupt asss nabs you...you are an American milk cow. I live in Texas. Many people I know don’t even go there anymore. That includes people who have settled here from Mexico.
Quora.com is a good place to ask questions like that.
WILL THEY ASK TO SEE A DRIVERS LICENSE WHEN RETURNING FROM MEXICO BY CAR?
No. Nobody under any circumstances will ever ask to see your driver's license on either side of the border so don't worry. Nothing bad could possibly happen to you or your dad's car.
This is the answer you were looking for, right?
I live just a few short miles from the US/Mexican border. And I know few people who have crossed that border in their lives more than I have. But I will never return and I advise all Americans to stay away.
Crossing by foot at San Ysidro is a good idea. There are bus terminals within walking distance. I don’t trust the cab drivers. A lot of the cabs don’t have seat belts in the back seat. I would not recommend going down there unless you have a Sentri pass. Without a Sentri pass the pedestrian line for entry back into the United States can take more than two hours.
Be sure to update this thread when you get back.
You have no drivers license, do you have insurance? It doesn’t make much difference, it would be null and void in Mexico anyway. Why would anyone take their personal vehicle to Mexico when odds are that it isn’t going to go well?
Good question. I figure he wants to be like the illegals who drive without a license in this country.
And if you hit someone, make sure they are dead and keep going
So now, you tell us you are using your father’s car without insurance (his company will not pay if you are in a accident because you have no license), which places him in full liability for any incident.....you want to drive his car to a foreign country without a license and proper insurance.....wow just wow.
Couldn’t you find a pic of Oscar with the giant afro with the ballcap pinned on top?
