    No, you need an international driver's licence obtained from HK to drive in the States.

    Foreign Visitors Driving in the U.S.:

    http://www.usa.gov/Topics/Foreign_Visitors_Driving...

    An international driver's license must be obtained from your homecountry. This permit only verifies that you hold a valid license inyour home country. It is your foreign driver's license that allows youto drive in the United States. Contact the authorities in your homecountry to get an international driving permit, as the United Statesdoes NOT issue international driver's licenses to foreign visitors.

    Yes, for sure.

    Go to the website that I gave you last time or visit http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/alerts/drivera... to read more about the international driver's licence.

    Sorry I need to make correction to my last sentence:

    Go to the website that I gave you last time or visit http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/alerts/drivera... to read more about the international driver's PERMIT. <-- "permit" NOT "licence"
