Default Driving Permit?

For those that have moved back "home" did you have to resit a driving test and do teh on road driving stuff.
Or were you able to get a driving licence easy?
I have held my US one for 15 years.

Have you ever had a UK driving license?

I don't know whether you will be able to exchange your US license for a UK one...I've looked on the DVLA's website but can't find anything about the US. Take a look at their website...it may be best to contact them and find out.

No, you won't be able to exchange a US licence - details here.

If you take your test in an automatic, you won't be able to drive standard in the UK. If you take your test in a standard, you can drive both.

You'll be able to drive on your US license for a year even if you have a UK provisional license. If you haven't passed your test by that point, you'll have to drive on the provisional license and suffer all the restrictions that brings.
