Three Vehicle Limitation
Based on the NATO Status of Forces Agreement for Italy, the maximum amount of vehicles allowed are three vehicles during your entire tour at Aviano. Please note that trailers and motorcycles are also counted as vehicles.
Many streets and parking spaces are a tight fit for large vehicles. Also, gas is expensive. Command-sponsored individuals will receive authorization to purchase gas vouchers at a reduced price, but the number of liters authorized is based on the size of the engine and is only for one vehicle. Some members do fine; some regret shipping a large vehicle.
There are numerous car dealers in the local area which sell new and used motor vehicles to Aviano members. Ask your sponsor to indicate the location of dealerships once you arrive, but remember to be judicious when entering into any transaction!
Used cars are readily available in Italy. However, you may find their cost somewhat higher than similar models sold stateside. Many people have a "work only" automobile or motorcycle. Cars with automatic transmissions are more difficult to find.
The "Lemon Lot" is located near the Commissary parking lot.
International Driver's License
You will need an International Driver's License to drive in any country other than Italy. According to the state department, there are ONLY 2 authorized websites in which to obtain your IDP. They are the AAA and the National Auto Club.
