    I drove down here in Los Angeles, CA for a vacation with my relatives.
    My stay will be for a month. I have a valid MN drivers licesnse with a valid MN registration and insurance. One of my friend told me that I need to get a California drivers license if I need to stay for more than a week.
    When I googled, I saw some people complaining about their vehicle getting towed for non-CA license.
    So, I am confused what's the deal with driving out of state vehicle and the out of state driver's license here in CA?

    Can anyone shed lights on it?

    I've never heard of such a thing. As far as I know, you only need to apply for a CA license only if you are moving to CA.

    You are licensed in the state where you live, unless you are in college or the military. You cannot have more than one license at one time, because you cannot be a resident of more than one place.

    What I think your friend is thinking is that CA might require you to register at the DMV within one week of CHANGING YOUR RESIDENCE to CA. I think in most states it is 30 days, but in CA it might be 7, who knows. You aren't doing this. You are on vacation, not moving to CA.

    Coming from a CA resident: you'll be fine. There's no need to apply for a CA driver's license.
