Hi so even with a international driving licence you are under age to use it here in the united kingdom. so it is of no use, even in june when you return it will only be valid for 12 months.

check with DVLA but fairly sure as you are a under legal age for UK roads despite holding a license for driving here. any international license is valid where accepted in uk for a limited time . you must be 17 for uk roads.

You must be 17 to drive a car in UK. No way round this. NOTE: if you are a 17 year old with a foreign licence you will find it very difficult to go on any insurance (there is no such thing as an international licence, the IDP is simply a translation of your real licence in a standard format)

You can drive in the UK for up to 12 months from the date of first entry. There is no such thing as an internatioinal licence -you have a US licence You still have to comply with the minimum age limits in the UK so cannot drive in the UK until 17 At 17 with a full UK licence insurance is going to be obver £3000 and £4000 plus most likely for a very small small engined car
