Anguilla Driving Advice and Car Hire Info
Driving In Anguilla
You will need to bring your driving licence if you plan to rent a car (and obtain a local driving licence from the car rental company at a cost of US $25- valid for 3 months). Most rental cars are automatic, but manual ones can be obtained. Anguilla is one of those countries which has its steering wheel on the wrong side of the car! They drive on the left, like in UK and Australia, but the steering wheel is also usually on the left. You should therefore be cautious when overtaking – or ask your passenger if its safe to pull out –they’ll have a better view of the oncoming traffic than you !
Anguilla is a flat island with a couple of paved main roads which are paved though may be in poor condition in places.The road which runs through the Valley in the centre of Anguilla is not in as good condition as newer roads such as Rev. C. Leonard Carty Road which runs along Katouche Bay on the North side of the island to the village of North Hill, and the 5KM long Jeremiah Gumbs Highway runs from Blowing Point to the Valley.
Minorm roads on the island can be poorly paved and narrow. Because of the narrow roads and lack of places to pull over, drivers should be alert to vehicles stopping suddenly on the roadway. Drivers usually generally abide by road rules and drive courteously but you may occasionally get drivers overtaking in dangerous locations, so proceed with caution, especially on unlit roads at night.
Although I try and keep the information in the site updated as much as possible, in a rapidly moving world, situations can change daily. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads, safety etc.
