Update on Canadian Snowbirds and the International Drivers Permit  
Welcome to Florida 
Thursday, you may have read a story that created quite a stir for those Canadians traveling to Florida . It was reported that Canadians were now required by law to have an International Driving Permit in addition to their regular licenses when driving in Florida. The state law quietly came into effect on Jan. 1, but no one in the tourism industry was aware of the change. It's estimated that 3 million Canadians traveled to Florida last year.
