Driving in Antigua & Barbuda

In Antigua & Bermuda, driving is on the left. Most roads are all-weather and in reasonable condition, although they lack road markings. Few streets are lit at night. Large main roads, especially in Antigua, are in relatively good condition, but smaller roads may be more rugged and undeveloped. Slow-moving vehicles and animals often crowd roads that already have significant numbers of potholes and bends. Drivers should always be on the defensive for damaged roads or aggressive and fast drivers. Most roads lack signposts or directional guides, so drivers will want to study maps and ask for directions. Many vehicles may also lack functioning signal and brake lights, and buses are generally crowded and move quickly through traffic. Travellers going to remote locations should secure the rental of a four-wheel-drive vehicle.

The national speed limit is 65 kph (40 mph) and there is a limit of 32 kph (20 mph) in built-up areas.

Visitors to Antigua & Barbuda can obtain a temporary six-month licence with a valid driver's licence from their home country at a fee of $20. Permits can be obtained from the Antigua & Barbuda Transport Board or from car rental companies. Major international car rental companies are generally safer to rent from. Motorcycles, for rent in Jolly Harbour, can be risky on Antigua's unpredictable roads, but they are also a great way to get from place to place.

If you are travelling with a young child, it is important to be aware that while it is not illegal to travel without a car seat, most injuries suffered by young children abroad occur in moving vehicles. If it is possible for you to bring you car seat from home, it is highly recommended that you do so.
