When a Russian-speaking immigrant needed a driver's license, he "out of old habit" decided to check whether it was possible to buy them here.

“First of all, of course, he did not go to the department, but started asking friends and acquaintances. It is curious that a good half of this venture did not appreciate, they say, it is wrong, hand over it yourself. The rest simply shrugged their shoulders: we handed over ourselves, we don’t know how and where to negotiate, there are no acquaintances either, ”the author writes. "But he still managed to find the little man from the Department of Motor Vehicles."

As it turned out, it is very possible to buy rights in the USA.

An employee of the department said that there were precedents, but such cases are very rare. And you need to negotiate for a very long time, the process may even drag on for a couple of months.

“It's funny that during this time you can easily pass on your own, because a driving school is not needed specifically for passing driving license exams in the United States, the timeout between retakes is small,” the author writes.

In addition, such a service is not cheap, since everything is decided by the management, and they will not take risks for a small amount.

Approximately it can cost 20-30 thousand dollars.

“A person from the department noticed that it would be cheaper and faster to buy a fake license. After all, they often catch those who travel with such documents for several years, since at each stop the license number in the database is not punched, ”the author noted.

So it turns out that a driver's license in the United States is not bought - it is long, expensive and very often punishable.
