I'm an American and have been living in Germany since 2008; last year, I got a German driver's license. This spring, I'll be in the US on vacation and will be driving.
I've seen many posts and recommendations that discuss how necessary/unnecessary it is to get an American driver's license translated when driving in Italy or France. Well, the chances that a French/Italian policeperson or rental agent will be able to read English is far, far better than the chances that an American officer or agent will be able to read German.
So, should I consider getting the German license translated into English? If so, who does it? ADAC?
I'm posting in the Europe Forum because I know there are German residents who post here frequently, and I'm not sure they will see this if I post it in the US Forum. So, for those who have used a German license in the US, how did it work?
