Driving in Grenada

Grenada is an independent commonwealth of England, so drivers stay to the left-hand side of the road. This change will require a slow adjustment for travellers from North America and mainland Europe. All motor vehicle passengers and drivers are required by law to wear seat belts. Speed limits are generally not posted on roads, and in some cases, neither are road signs. Travellers who plan to explore remote and rugged terrain should rent a four-wheel-drive vehicle and bring along a good road map.

Traffic accidents that cause injury and fatality are a common threat to foreigners. Unfamiliar roads and reckless and aggressive drivers combine to create hazardous driving conditions for travellers. Main roads in Grenada can be in good condition and quite busy. Other roads may be in poor condition, marred by potholes. Rain and darkness can create additional hazards on already worn roads, and travelers may wish to avoid night time driving. Drivers should expect steep and thin, curving roads that leave little room to manoeuvre. Local drivers can be reckless.

You will need to obtain a local driving permit, which requires a valid driver's licence from your home country. You may obtain the permit at the police station in the Carenage in St George's, or at one of the many rental car agencies on the island. The cost of the local permit is EC$30 ($11).

The Government of Grenada has a seat belt law; drivers and passengers found not wearing seat belts are subject to a fine of EC$1,000 ($400).
