Hi all,

I don't know why but I can't find the US Virgin Islands driver handbook anywhere online. I need it because I want to start studying it now so that I'll be able to get my (very first, woo!) driver license when I get there. Can anyone provide a link to the USVI driver handbook?

I think they charge for it now, so you have to get it from the BMV or a driving instructor.

Get your license where you are now and turn it in when you get here.

Sausage has the best advise. We have some bizarre rules here that they test for that most have never heard of or simply can't comprehend.

Interesting that the rules have changed from (I assume several) years ago when, even if you had a stateside license, you had to take the written test but not the road test. Makes things so much easier.

The road test consists of dodging potholes while simultaneously blowing the horn and proper use of a middle finger.

Thanks for your replies. 🙂 Does anyone have the number to the St. Croix DMV? I had some other questions.

Do you get extra points or fail for hitting chickens?

Depending on your time line , myself I would get the local license then after a few report it lost, after all it is your first. Get replacement, keep one wherever you want and when you need to turn in your stateside license here you will still have a valid stateside id should you choose to leave.

Not sure if they changed rules but it was taking the written test if you have a valid license at the time. (stateside is fine)

If they haven't changed then if anyone coming with you has an expired license they would be required to pass road test and written. Same would go for no license.

Good luck

Or you could just get a stateside license and drive here until you decide whether you're staying or not. I had my stateside for nearly two years when I turned it in here. How do they know when you arrived?

By far the easier path to take.

I know. I said it already. The point is to drive here with a stateside license until they're told otherwise. Even if they're pulled over for an offense the PD (LOL) doesn't know when they arrived or how long they've been on island.

I didn't know that which is why I quoted your post before making my comment. *-)

If u plan on visiting states while u live here you should really do as stxisbest says and get stateside dl first. Then as noted above say u lost it and get a second. Keep one and when you come to the VI you'll turn one in for a VI.

The reason I suggest this is that a VI dl isn't accepted everywhere in the states. I've had several bars stateside and even in other countries deny me drinks or cigs.... I'm 35 but I must look super young as I get carded for bubblegum in the states.

The problem you run in to is that the registration more than likely is in the owners name. Vehicles can be registered on a stateside license as long as it hasn't expired but the registration date will still be there. Instant calendar. Hmmmm

Not a good gotcha baseline at all, since it's legal to live stateside while owning a car here. I did that for 7 years.
