I've been in Murica for two years.
I don't have a license yet, but I came back to US from India four months ago(last entry).
Am I allowed to drive a car on Indian license at this point?

    The dmv says if you’re a visitor to California, you can drive with a foreign license. If you’re renting and working here, you should apply for a CA license.

    You can rent cars and drive for 6 months or 1 year I believe . Do not forget California’s law requires liability insurance. It is mandatory

    Regardless of the law please stay off the roads. FOBs are weapons of mass destruction behind the wheel.

    I think using Murica should be a solid qualification for a US drivers license.

    I don’t think so. You need to apply for one asap. If they stop you without a license you’ll get a hefty fine and your car impounded for sure
