The Expat Files: Living in Latin America A guide to moving to Latin America, finding work, and settling in.

July 27, 2012  

-Expat driving license problems and questions. Can you use your Ohio or New Jersey, etc., license in Latin America? If so, what happens after your first world one expires, do they toss you in the slammer with the Latin skinheads and the neck-tattoo boys?

-Why are there are about six times as many Latins with driving licenses as there are actual vehicles on the roads down there? (in the USA it’s about one to one)
-How the “Gringo Advantage” works when you get pulled over by the cops and flash your USA driver’s license (expired or not!)
-The real truth about those international driving licenses as advertised on the internet and elsewhere (like the ones they sell at AAA club in the USA). Should you get one? Are they a scam? The art and practice of using one, as well as the best place to get one (if you want).
-Expat Eddie’s twisted insight on Latin cops
-Now you can follow the link on the main page at to schedule a consultation with me. If you want to discuss the details of living, working, playing, doing business and/or retiring in Latin America, now you and I can talk about your situation one on one.
