I'm a Canadian citizen and will be moving to Cleveland to study at Case Western this summer. During my time there I'll be interested in purchasing a car for my four-year stay. I was wondering if anyone knew if I was able to purchase, plate, insure and register a car in Ohio with a Canadian driver's license? I will be in Ohio on an F1 (student) visa and will have an address, obviously, and I noticed on a few insurance company's websites that they give policies to both U.S. and Canadian license holders. But I was a little unclear on the logistics of the situation, and calling the BMV didn't help very much (they seemed to know very little about it, beyond suggesting I just get an Ohio license).
I do have a friend who is in Cleveland currently and what she did was she simply purchased a car in Ontario, insured it for both Canada and the U.S. and drove it over. However, I know this is going to be much, much more expensive than purchasing and insuring the car locally.
Can anyone provide any insight, or do I need to start the arduous process of calling insurance companies?
