I've searched but I can't find any previous posts. WEF 1st Jan this year, an International Driving Permit is required for all foreign drivers in Florida. This must accompany your national driving license. Apparently the foreign ones are confusing the hell out of Floridian traffic cops. Car hire companies and travel agents appear to be blissfully ignorant of this new rule. This new requirement is confirmed on the AA website. A Canadian paper is up in arms about this as they have to get one as well. They reckon this could be changed in July to exclude licenses inn English and says the cops aren't rigidly enforcing this but also quotes the highways agency as saying it would be should you be involved in an accident. You can get an IDP from a post office in UK for £5.50 or from the AA/RAC.
