Why carry an IDP while driving in Marshall Islands?
Your IDP is a valid form of identification in more than 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information in the 12 most widely spoken languages in the world – it is understandable to most of the local officials and authorities of the countries you visit.
It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Marshall Islands highly recommends an International Driving Permit.
Driving Rules in Marshall Islands
Discover the Marshall Islands. This nation is slowly sinking so go and visit now! The amazing beaches, relaxing ambiance and clear waters will surely capture your heart. Drive your own car for convenience and added safety. Be sure to check these reminders before heading out.
The Marshall Islands drives on the right hand side of the road. I’ve seen conflicting information on driving licence requirements for foreign visitors. I’m unable to find anything ‘official’ from the local authorities and have seen reports that a local licence needs to be obtained to drive here.
I have also seen accounts which say that your own photo license is sufficient, provided it’s written in Roman alphabet. If anyone can confirm the rules, please let me know. Maximum speed limit is 40kmh and may be lower in built-up areas.
- Traffic moves on the right side of the road.
- The minimum driving age is 18 years old.
