Default Thinking of moving to florida...

Hi, well i've been thinking of doing it ever since i visited florida last
year.

my cousin married a girl from Daytona Florida last year. she came to live
over here but so far isn't liking it so my cousin who is from the UK and his
wife are thinking of going back to the US to live.
i'd like to follow them back and live there but have some questions.

1. is medical insurance, how much and i'm guessing it's like all other
insurance companies. some are better than others ect. also does the health
insurance cover dentist stuff?

2. driving licence, will i have to retake a driving test or will they let me
use my UK licence? guess if i stay on a UK licence i'd pay more too.

3. i currently work in the motor trade. not got any qualifications above
GCSE level but do have 2 years experience in the motor trade and some
previous in the IT industry.
i'm interested in getting a qulification in the UK to help my chances but
i'm not sure in what so any idea on employment and routes and courses to
think about?

4. last question is anything else should i think about and will my cousin
being over there already (or will be if i do decide to go) help in my chance
of going too?

thanks for any info people!

You're getting a bit ahead of yourself. The first thing you need to
sort it is whether or not it is possible for you to go and live in the
USA. From the information you give, it looks unlikely that you'll be
able to. Your options are discussed here:
