Driving Rules in Bahamas

Enjoy amazing soft sand beaches and crystal clear water in Bahamas-the perfect destination for a relaxing getaway.  Enjoy your stay by driving your own car, just like what James Bond did! Familiarize yourself with some traffic laws while driving across the country. 

Important Reminders: 

  • In Bahamas, people use left-hand drive vehicles and drive on the left side of the road. This is particularly interesting and get familiar with it quickly!
  • Minimum age to drive is 17 years old and minimum legal age to rent a car is 21 years old.
  • Drink drive limit is 80 mg per 100 ml of blood.
  • Hands-free is a must. Keep your phones away unless they are hands-free. 
  • Seat belt is a must. 
  • Speed limit is 40 km/h in urban areas and 75 km/h in rural roads.
  • Avoid driving in intense storm.

Driving in the Winter

The climate of the Bahama islands is mostly tropical savannah. The temperature average is between 75°F and 84°F (24°C-29°C) in both winter and summer, although it can get chilly in the early morning and at night. 

Enjoy your swim in Bahamas and have a safe travel!
