Driving Tips

ImageThe minimum age at which driving is allowed is 18 and the driver requires either a valid EU national driving license or a valid international driver license for non-EU citizens. You should give way to the traffic coming from the right. If there is a yellow diamond sign apparent, only then do you have the right of way. Another thing to remember is that you must stop completely at 'Stop' signs. You always drive on the right hand side and overtake from the left. Also before you begin driving  it would be useful to have a look at the various signs and traffic signals so as to understand the road signs and speed limits.  Speed limits are generally as follow: City 50 kilometers per hour, major roads 110 kilometers per hour and on the motorways 130 kilometers per hour. In case of wet weather conditions, the speed limit on motorways is reduced to 110 kilometers per hour and 90 kilometers per hour on major roads.
Speed monitoring by radars is common and there can be very expensive on-the-spot fines. Do not drive fast and know that speed limits can alter in conditions of poor visibility and wet weather. Also headlights must be switched on during the day if there is poor visibility.
