On Tuesday, April 2nd, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed the bill that officially repeals a controversial law forcing Canadian drivers to carry an International Driving Permit (IDP) on the roads of the Sunshine State.

The law initially came into effect without notice, resulting in a backlash from Canadian tourists. Authorities agreed to defer enforcement of the law before finally opting for a repeal.

“Effective immediately, Canadians in Florida can go back to doing what they have always been able to do: Drive with peace of mind using their provincial driver’s license,” said Jeff Walker, CAA Vice President of Public Affairs. “CAA is pleased that the voices of its members and others were listened to by state officials, and that the state of Florida has removed any uncertainty.”
