If you're visiting the United States, it's likely that you don't have a driver's license from any US state.

Many insurance companies in the US require an American driver's license in order to provide coverage.

These insurers may allow you to buy a policy online, even letting you skip the "upload driver's license" step in the sign-up process.

But insurance companies have a 30-day window to cancel an insurance policy for certain conditions - failure to provide a driver's license that meets their requirements is one of those conditions.

So which companies will accept and honor an insurance policy taken out by someone without a US-issued driver's license?
