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. Mauritius highly recommends an International Driving Permit.

Driving Rules in Mauritius

For driving in Mauritius foreign visitors need a valid driver license issued by the country of their residence and an International driving license.Visit Mauritius and its wonderful places to be. From parasailing to hiking and many more. Driving with your own car is the best way to explore this country. Here are few reminders when driving in Mauritius.  

Important Reminders:

  • Traffic moves on the left side of the road.
  • The minimum driving age is 18 years old. The minimum rental age is 21 years old. 
  • While driving, a driver and all passengers in the car must wear seat belts.
  • Child-restraint is a must.
  • Hands-free is a must. Keep your phones away unless they are hands-free.    
  • Mauritius has zero tolerance for drinking.
  • The speed limit is 40 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h in rural roads and 100 km/h on highway.
  • There are no road tolls in Mauritius.

Speed Limits:

There has been significant improvement in signage in recent years. Not long ago the location of the speed limit signs was rather haphazard, typically a single sign at any random location in the centre of a village, or located where town boundaries formerly were 50 years previously. Mauritius now has an excellent speed limit signage system; all residential areas now have a limit of 40 km/h, and the highest limit is on some sections of the two motorways at 110 km/h. The police now have several mobile speed cameras and handheld speed detectors, but it seems they need more.

Night Driving in Mauritius:

There are numerous hazards that are unlit at night: pedestrians walking along the roadside everywhere, numerous cyclists and motorcyclists without any lighting, and numerous vehicles with inoperative or insufficient lighting. There are no large wild animals here, but cattle sometimes roam loose on the rural roads, less and less over the last ten years.

Driving Mauritius during winters:

Mauritius enjoys a mild tropical climate. However, there are some rainfalls during the summer. Plan your trip wisely. Keep your emergency kits handy at all times.

Enjoy your stay and have a safe travel
