You shouldn't have any problem......there are lots of people from other countries that are able to rent an auto in the US.....as long as it's a valid driver's license you should be fine.

My last post was made under the assumption that you have a current Belize drivers license.

You will have no problem with a valid Belize driver license.

Yes, it is acceptable but they will look at you and our funny (almost phoney) looking license. Then they will ask you a million questions about Belize. You have a chance to do PR.
Also look closely at when your license expires. I got mine in the spring and when I showed up to rent a car the day after my birthday in September they pointed out that it was expired. But I insisted I had just gotten it! Too bad! When I got back I went to the traffic department and inquired about the expiration date. They informed me that when you get your first license it expires on your birthday even if it is the next day.
Good Luck.

If your US drivers license is expired, and you are a US citizen, they will fine you for driving with an expired license, in spite of your current Belize license. If you don't believe me, email the DMV in any state.

Not true. Be careful, when I renewed my California drivers license and used my sons's address the state tax people had to be convinced that I didn't live there.
If you are not a resident you can't have a license.

The rental car companies say "valid drivers license", so I am thinking I will just go get my licensed renewed first to avoid any trouble.

I am not a PR yet - just have a work permit at the moment (been here for >3 yrs).
