Driving Rules in Colombia

It may not be on the top of your list, but Colombia has a lot to offer. The churches, mountains and beaches are second to none. It is best to drive your own car if you are travelling to Colombia. Be sure to keep a few rules in mind to enjoy your vacation to the fullest.

  • Colombians drive on the right side of the road.
  • The minimum driving age is 18 years old. The minimum rental age is 23 years old. 
  • Seat belt is a must.
  • Child-restraint is a must. 
  • Drink moderately. The legal alcohol limit is 40 mg per 100 ml of blood. 
  • The speed limit is 60 km/h in urban areas, 80 km in rural roads and 100 km/h in highways. 
  • You are required to drive with dipped headlights on highways all day long. 
  • Watch out for speed bumps.
