Driving in Gibraltar
Cars drive on the right-hand side of the road. Most residents own a car, even though it’s very easy to get around solely on foot. All vehicles have to be registered with the authorities. Expats with a drivers' licence from an EU country can drive in Gibraltar on this licence until it expires. Expats with a non-EU drivers' licence should get an international driving permit before moving to Gibraltar.
