Paul, in the United Kingdom . . . how can a foreigner drive in the US

by Paul Dakers
(England, UK)

. . . . and so I'm wondering if this site is all Americanos, or can us Brits join in the fun? Is it possible to emigrate and become someone's replacement driver?

I have a UK license, Class One, which is Articulated and almost as big as they get here, but I have wanted for a while to drive Stateside.

I have some amount of experience having been driving for about 7 years again, and am very adaptable if someone will give me a chance.

I would particularly like to do Ice Road truckers, but obviously will have Visa and work permit issues - I'm not asking for any favours.


I will pay back anyone who fronts up any kind of fee for me, even if that includes a firm paying an air fare, and transportation once I get there - that these arrangements are made by someone who knows what they are doing is more important than the money itself.

Near on 40 years old, I have a level head and good common sense, and can be left to work unsupervised.

A reference from my current employer can be arranged if required - come on America, my birthday's 4th July - give a wannabe patriot a chance . . .

You'll need a work visa, obviously, then talk to Transco Lines in Arkansas and Hogan in St. Louis, Mo., two companies I've had experience with hiring "foreigners". Some drivers from down under work 9 months, then head home for 3. Jimmy
